Lemmy.world Admin Response to Defederation from Exploding Heads - Lemmy.world
Today, we want to inform everyone that we have decided to defederate from https://exploding-heads.com/ [https://exploding-heads.com/]. We understand that defederating should always be a last resort, and individuals can certainly block communities. However, blocking alone does not prevent potential harm to vulnerable communities. After carefully reviewing the instance, reported posts, and multiple comments from the community, we have concluded that exploding-heads is not adhering to the Lemmy or Citizen Code of Conduct. Therefore, we cannot, in good faith, continue to federate with an instance that consistently promotes hate, racism, and bullying. Examples: https://lemmy.world/post/577526 [https://lemmy.world/post/577526] - Community Moderator Harassment https://exploding-heads.com/post/92194 [https://exploding-heads.com/post/92194] - Systemadmin Post https://exploding-heads.com/post/90780 [https://exploding-heads.com/post/90780] - Systemadmin Post https://exploding-heads.com/post/91488 [https://exploding-heads.com/post/91488] - Systemadmin Post https://exploding-heads.com/post/93725 [https://exploding-heads.com/post/93725] - Community Moderator Post Again, deciding to defederate from an instance is not taken lightly. In the future, we will continue to review instances on a case-by-case bases. As for our community, please refrain from posting or commenting with hateful words as well. Arguing back and calling people names is not the solution. The best course of action is to report the posts or comments violating our server rules. Lemmy Code of Conduct https://join-lemmy.org/docs/code_of_conduct.html [https://join-lemmy.org/docs/code_of_conduct.html] Citizen Code of Conduct https://github.com/stumpsyn/policies/blob/master/citizen_code_of_conduct.md [https://github.com/stumpsyn/policies/blob/master/citizen_code_of_conduct.md] “We are committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all, regardless of level of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or other similar characteristic.”

It gives me hope for the future of beehaw refederating with that instance. They host some interesting communities. To be clear, I fully support beehaw defederating, it’s just heartwarming to see instance admins do things that move things forward

Lmfao I don’t know how you didn’t get it earlier, cause it’s so obvious. But for everyone else who doesn’t understand the joke, not me of course obv but for everyone else, what’s the joke?


Beehaw is a pun of yeehaw, the thing cowboys say. Hence the bee with a cowboy hat as a mascot.

The bee also has a lasso.
