Trying to move instances has made me realize how communication is controlled by fediverse instance admins, not users, to the users's detriment.
This is frustrating as picking an instance that some admins start to disagree with means that communication is cut off between users without them having a say.
Currently octodon.social and mastodon.technology block my main instance.
Email had its problems, but it is rare for admins there to decide who you can & can't email wholesale.
Now I wouldn't recommend anyone using an instance other than the largest for fear that they may get arbitrarily cut off from others.
That's not healthy.
@keverets Don't most email providers maintain IP blacklists of known spammers?
