Appealing moderation decisions against your account without having to go directly over e-mail will be possible soon #mastodev
@annika If you are concerned about abuse, only one appeal can be submitted, limited by characters, and only within 20 days of the decision. Since you got a notification about the initial report in the first place, this is a matter of potentially just one more notification.
Since people can complain to you through e-mail (and it is not advised to not provide a contact e-mail for legal reasons) I think it is in any case preferable to have that in the system instead of e-mail.
@emma @annika Over a long enough time and with enough people you are guaranteed to make moderation mistakes (Unless you just run a server for your friends in which case this will never be relevant to you). This is about giving people hurt by those mistakes a chance for them to be corrected. It's also about making your life easier so you don't have to wade through e-mails.
