My experience of getting harassed and how Mastadon dealt with it brought up some insights.

1. I joined Mastadon yesterday, a network that presents an alternative to toxic social platforms.

Rest in the pictures below 2-5.

@ideasmithy Good points and a happy ending.

I'll note: when I see abuse and harassment directed *at other users*, I'll check to verify that it is what it seems to be, and report it.

Mastodon's "report" feature also allows calling up other toots by the reported user. Often you'll see a consistent pattern emerge directed either at one or many users.

Third-party reports are almost always helpful as they remove the subjectivity of the direct participants.
