We recommend that you read the #MastodonSandwich hashtag
and remember that Mastodon is radically open: you should assume that your toots are for posterity. Feel free to chat with us about risk, privacy, security, and other questions.
Our instance hosts a lot of (innocuous) bots. If you don't want to see their toots, go to the "Filters" section of your settings and filter the "#bot" hashtag.
We support free and controversial speech, but we also want to maintain a pleasant environment for you. We forbid trolling, harassment, bigotry, and spam. Please use the Content Warning feature for NSFW or traumatic topics.
We can't see everything ourselves, so we encourage you to report toots, accounts, or instances for moderation. When handling moderation or other problems, we try to consider all of the circumstances, and to be reasonable and understanding.
We federate with most other Mastodon instances, but not those that (in our opinion) deliberately house the type of bad behavior that we forbid.
We will not sell your data, and will make every reasonable attempt to fight coerced disclosure of your data or our logs.
