I have made some changes to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. You can read about these, here: masto.host/new-changes-to-the-

Any issues or questions please let me know.

@mastohost How decide what is a falsehood, alternative facts, anecdotal evidence and who decide if something is a disinformation, misinformation, sensationalism, truthiness, propaganda, rumours, hoaxes, urban myths, pseudoscience, post-truth and opinion pieces or interviews that convey any of the previous ?

If I say I believe in God and that god exist you could say that god does not exist as there is no evidence of gods existence? So will that be a reason for you to terminate the server?

@Asux The Terms of Service mention Mastodon servers that are "mainly used for the following activities". The goal is not to identify a single piece of content but a pattern of usage.

The example you give is pretty straight forward. There is no proof that God doesn't exist so I see nothing wrong in an instance that spreads the message that God exists as long as it doesn't continuously harass people with different beliefs.

@Asux Now if a group is created to say that COVID-19 doesn't exist, then I will block that instance because there are scientific evidence that it exists.

If a single user from an instance I host says that COVID-19 doesn't exist, and someone reports that to me, I leave that to the administrator of that instance and do nothing about it. If the majority of the users of that instance focus their topics around spreading that message, then I will.

@Asux The reason why I had to create such a vast array of details is to avoid loopholes as much as possible. There are so many ways how people try to manipulate and deny what they are obviously doing that I need to have a wider net.

Hope this makes sense but if you have any questions please let me know.


On the other hand saying harassing a person for thinking there are more than two genders would be a “crime” as you then go to a personal “attack” on an individual. Saying a group of people are stupid I would not judge as a “crime” as no single person is being “attacked”.
