I am not sure how is that justified. "Bad users" are subjective
term. If I do not want to read something, then I do not read, right?
That does not justify blocking whole instances.

We speak here of freedom of speech and decentralization. And admins of
Fediverse instances find it just to block large instance, I do
not. That is not freedom of speech.

Then I went into and made my account myself to make first hand
experience. I have not found nothing special, it was friendly, and
many people from communicate through Fediverse with me.

On the other hand instances are not blocked if they distribute vaguely
legal images. Now I do not wish to name such.

To block is hypocritical, or those admins from new instances
never got the idea of what means free speech.

That is why I have own instances. I do not depend on those who will
block free speech.
