what bugs me the most is thinking that if lemmy became as relevant as reddit, servers to spam all over the threadiverse would be created nonstop

does anyone have some resources into solutions for spam in stuff like email? i’d like to check if having some giants gatekeepers like microsoft and google is inevitable

    There is a project working on shared & real-time updated block-lists (and a chain of trust model) that originated from within the Lemmy community: https://fediseer.com/

    It was set up pre-emptively last year when automated bot accounts were exploding, but somehow that never turned into much spam. But the infrastructure is there now and basically waits for a real-world test case.

    There are also several auto-moderation bot frameworks, such as Threativore which we have running here on SLRPNK and which is planned to be integrated with Fediseer as well.

    XMPP also has a similar concept with https://xmppbl.org/ and IRC had a similar system for spam IPs for a long time.

      Thank you! I knew about fediseer but wanted to know more battle tested and technical solutions (if there were any) like, idk, having some kind of fail2ban but not so low level

      Didn’t know about threativore, nice

      Still weird we don’t have yet an automod directly into lemmy lol

      (And I still get negative number of posts because of the deleted ones :D)(and they still have some cache like user should be able to restore their stuff, they shouldn’t)
