@BryanLunduke man that is NOT COOL. Most especially since so many people came to Mastodon instances as a refuge from Nazi type people.
As an instance admin I'd also add you should report such people to the admins of their respective instances so they can be dealt with. They are like (bad) graffiti...if they are not cleaned up they attract more blight.
@msh Appreciate that. You're a good one. :)
Honestly, I'm torn on how to deal with it. Mostly I just block those people... I'm a die hard "Free Speech" kinda guy... even when I disagree with the speech.
Dunno. It's hard. :)
I don't think its that hard of a decision. Nazis advocate for genocide, and they gaslight non-nazis and abuse your value of free speech to normalize their hate in public conversations. They contort the idea of free speech into meaning that everyone should give them a platform, which is definitely not how it works.
Nazis aren't just speaking their mind, they're actively trying to manipulate people.
