    I don’t care that the fediverse has a ton of traffic. It may not have the most users, but it definitely has the best

      Very true. I’m still amazed how good lemmy is considering how small we still are.

      100% agree. Have encountered a few jerkwads on Lemmy but hey, blocking works. The overall vibe here is 100x better than schmeddit.

        Quick question regards blocking - how does it work exactly?

        When I block someone, I can still see their message. Just won’t get a notification. I thought, it would be blocked entirely - so I’m a bit confused.

          Might depend on the instance or client. I’m using Liftoff. They cease to exist for me.

          When a blocked user replies to my message I get no notification and might just see “1 more reply” or something like that but when I click it it wont load. Only when I sign out can I read it. However I believe that the blocked users can still see my messages just fine. Same with bans. I can see all posts from lemmy.ml but they can’t see mine.

      I much much prefer the niche community here. Much less shit to have to wade through (see: came here to say this x 100000 per post) to get to the good comments and posts

      Exactly. I don’t need the most users. The internet was better back when it wasn’t everybody.

      People complaining about a loss of users are the same people that will complain about performance issues next time there is a huge influx of users that stresses the infrastructure for popular instances.
