@scott can we talk about what kind of effort is required to moderate/manage spam? If I can get a handle on what's required I might be able to do it and then DVS would be more willing to manage the financial aspects ;) firstname.lastname@example.org
@nicolaskruchten I love that idea. There's not a huge amount of effort. Mostly I rely on people here to report spam. So when I get a report I just click into it and block the account. But we do have a lot of users with no posts that seem like latent spam bot accounts. Part of what I do here is follow the Mastodon admin forums. I wait for others to develop better spam-fighting solutions, then redeploy them here. :) https://discourse.joinmastodon.org/c/instance-admin
@scott OK thanks! I think the "latent spam bots" is probably what we'd want to clean up I think. What are your hopes and dreams for the right person/group to take this over in terms of "fit"?
@scott @jschwabish makes sense! Do you think your original goals align with the DVS idea as it has evolved so far? Here is the DVS code of conduct today: https://www.datavisualizationsociety.com/code-of-conduct
