This dude posts a wildly racist meme of Michelle Obama. I report the post. Funnily enough, the racist post is posted by the mod of dankmemes, dankchristianmemes and some other shit hole.

Said mod then starts sending abusive transphobic messages to me. Try to report the user. Nothing happens when I hit the button.

Shit like this is why Lemmy isn’t a viable alternative yet. We need to do better and be better.

    Noob question: can we, at the individual user-level, block entire instances?

      It’s an often requested feature that I’m sure will come to Lemmy sooner rather than later, but in the meantime there is a bit of a workaround: if you’re using a browser then you can block a whole instance using ublock origin. Note that Firefox mobile supports ublock as well.

      I’ll try to find the post with instructions and then edit my comment to include it here.

      EDIT: here you go
