This is a very good roundup of some challenges facing Mastodon moderation.

Top of my list for what to do to avoid dogpiling: whitelisting users. Basically a way for an admin to say: don't allow any new reports for a specific user for a day or two. That way the dogpiliers can waste their time and energy without the mods wasting theirs.


It's also clear that Masto needs some user tools here, too. On Twitter, a user facing a deluge can go private for a bit. That's not possible here. It should be. Just some sort of temporary withdrawal for protection, short of nuking your account.
