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

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

Pleased to announce, that we have changed our banner for 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.
