All reports of bad behaviour are to be made using the "report" button. They will normally be reviewed and dealt with as soon as possible, and Bobby Moss (the admin) will preserve the confidentiality of the reporter.

Please note that all content posted on Bobadon.rocks (even direct messages) can be reviewed by the admin at any time, but Bobby pledges to only do this when he's investigating a report.

Bobby Moss's word is law on this instance, and if you disturb the peace he reserves the right to revoke your content and access to Bobadon.rocks at any time, and for any reason.

The lists below are not exhaustive, they are simply provided to give users on this instance (and admins for other instances) an indication of the kinds of behaviour that are encouraged, discouraged and immediately banned here. This can be updated or amended at any time, and without warning. This was last edited on .

Please note: The definition of "excessive" is "excessive enough to annoy other users on the fediverse". Bobby will judge this on a case-by-case basis, and he still reserves the right to warn users about negative behaviour before he starts receiving reports from other users.

Behaviour We Encourage

  • Using a content warning (CW) for NSFW content, politics, religion, mental health, medical issues, violence/gore, sexual content/nudity, flashing video/gifs, illicit substances, hate topics & sub-toots about other users

  • Posting with "Unlisted" privacy when you recommend a hashtag to another user
  • Being a positive ambassador for this instance whenever you interact with other users and post to the federated timeline
  • Having positive, constructive & fun conversations with other fediverse users
  • Being polite, courteous and respectful to everyone you interact with, even when you disagree with them

  • Encouraging others to donate time & money to non-profit projects and good causes
  • Scrutinising news & rumours you see on the fediverse before reacting or forming opinions about them
  • Reporting bots and brands that need an instance-wide suspend or silence
