How is blocking supposed to work? Should I use the Block activity?
Okay, so Mastodon does send Block and Undo
, even though the spec says that Block activity is c2s only
There's also Ignore activity, but while Mastodon does have block and ignore as distinct options in the UI, ignoring a user doesn't send anything and is apparently done locally 🤔
yes, we follow twitter in having distinct Block (visible to the other person) and Mute (invisible to the other person) concepts
we thought about changing it to match the spec, but we had a ton of backlash from people who really value "Blocking prevents people from viewing your profile "
