If I block an email domain - what happends to all the users that is currently using that email-service then?

If you as a admin, have those issues. And have some time to spare, I can really recommend you checking out Haraka (haraka.github.io/)
Yes, it is a NodeJS based smtp server
Yes, NodeJS...

But this is by far the most easiest mailserver that you can set up, with DKIM signing, authentication, rate-limits and so on

anyone else seeing hundreds of spamaccounts created from linode IP's`

PSA for Mastodon Admin:
I just got 20 registration attempt on this instance with accounts that are using "metamask.randomTLD" as a email.
Please keep an eye out

Instance admin stuff 

What would you admins/owner do in this situation?

Ofcourse, banning outlook, hotmail, live can seem quite extreme, but I have lost count how many times this have happened the last months.

How long does it take for a mastodon instance to "forget" dead instances? Or does it even forget?

Would it be possible for Mastodon to implement DANE-verification against other instances?
It would a neat security feature

So has started to offer a free (50GGB maximum traffic).
What does think?

Personally, I have no idea how good namecheap is to protect users data

I wish it was simple to change the favico on a mastodon instance

Is there any sort of social-relay that is using an approved based system?

Has anyone tried using Mastodon OAuth2 to authenticate against a gitea server?

eeeh, is the gnu hashtag broken? Because I am getting timeout when I try to browse it.

Some people has today registered on this instance with hotmail/outlook/live addresses, and marked the verification email was marked as spam by the users.

Just a FYI

Notification to instances that uses relay.linux.pizza 

I will close down the relay in a few weeks. Please unfollow :)

Pleased to announce, that we have changed our banner for social.linux.pizza instead of the old one. The new one is classified as "art".

This was crafted together by @ohyran , so if you are in any need of a illustrator/designer - you know who you should talk to :)

Reminder for instance admins 

ICANN recently started to recommend all domains to deploy DNSSEC as a consequence after the first successful attack against a non-signed domain.

Please enable DNSSEC on your domain in order to protect your users.


Running elasticsearch on a remote location to enable "full-text-search" in Mastodon?

I was thinking about setting up elasticsearch on a server (about 45ms latency) not located nearby where the mastodon instance is located. Is that a good idea to do with 45ms latency?

I just wish that there was a possibility to tag instances with a certain tag, and if enough instances has tagged it as for example "NSFW", it would be added to a list that was other instances was able to subscribe to.
