How can decentralized social systems like handle political / social attacks?

How does the handle new instances that in some sense conflict with the values of existing instances?

I imagine lots of people are arguing about this, but I'm not seeing the debates. Are they in private for strategic reasons, or am I just looking in the wrong places?

Is there a way that people (like me) trying to develop future decentralized systems can learn from current struggles?

@sandro Some of it may be blocked by your instance admins. Instance blocking seems to be the trend now days.

@jordan31 I'm the instance admin, but maybe the hosting service I'm using is doing it, or maybe it's happening automatically somehow.

More likely I'm just not following the right people and not reading enough. I really just want the summary.

@sandro Well i believe Mastodon software blocks them now. I could be wrong on that. But I think this is the reason there are a Gab forked version of mastodon.
