Mastodon and Pleroma privacy update 

We're receiving reports of an exploit that allows users on certain versions of Pleroma to send follow requests to Mastodon users even after being blocked, causing a nuisance.

A relatively small number of bad actors are taking advantage of this, though, so users are encouraged to report them individually.

mst3k has blocked due to a massive transphobic meltdown from an admin and refusal to do anything about transphobic users.
