interesting how the top two servers on joinmastodon.org (witches.live and qoto.org) are both servers with long noted issues with racism and "free speech" types
part one of the server covenant says you have to have active moderation against racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia
and yet witches.live's admin has a noted history of being racist, and qoto.org explicitly has moderation go through a "democratic" process, rather than an actually active moderation process
anyway i'm not terribly surprised that Eugen is perfectly content having the instances front and center on what's essentially the page new people see to get started on masto be ones with a history of not keeping marginalized people safe
