Okay, 10th auth request from pawoo.net. Marking it as data mining instance. Any ideas how to block it on #friendica?

Aaaand just when I wrote it - two more from same instance with same (80-100k) of subscriptions...

There are a couple of plugins that block users by URL. I haven't tried it site wide though so not sure if it works like that.

@thrrgilag @pztrn The blacklist plugin seemed just to work relatively reliable with statusnet software, and there also I did not really figure out what it did. For now I think it’s best to first follow an account (absurd because you don’t want to do that) and then block them within the native GS interface. This will prevent you from @-replies which the blacklist plugin won’t filter.

@morph It was about friendica :) If we will add someone here - Friendica will import his posts. Which I resist to do in sake of database size.

I'd suggest try enabling the superblock plugin, then in your settings stick the url and see if that does the trick.

Second solution, to lower server's load - just block pawoo's IPs on nginx.

@thrrgilag There's a superblock plugin?

@mmn In Friendica yes there is.

@pztrn Those fragmented OStatus conversations. Sometimes my mind won’t complete them up to satisfying 99%.

Stanislav N. aka pztrn 2 months ago
@morph That's why I'm switched to friendica. It fetches whole conversation so I shouldn't go somewhere to read beginning.

@pztrn Hmmm, so do I follow the correct pztrn account? Must investigate tonight on the PC.

#Friendica's server blocklist is available on develop as of today, can you please test and report back if it works?

A week without pawoo's shit is awesome! :)

So I can confirm it works. Thanks!
