Meta just announced that they are trying to integrate Threads with ActivityPub (Mastodon, Lemmy, etc.). We need to defederate them if we want to avoid them pushing their crap into fediverse.

If you’re a server admin, please defederate Meta’s domain “threads.net

If you don’t run your own server, please ask your server admin to defederate “threads.net”.

      Are we not discussing the choice to defederate? As in most choices, some options are better than others. Sometimes it isn’t obvious what the best option is. People discuss and share ideas to make their decision.

      We as a community are faced with the choice of whether or not to support threads[.]net. We can think about it individually, or on an instance-by-instance basis - but we can also discuss it collectively. That’s whats happening here.

        Defederation is not user choice, it’s decided by the admin of an entire instance.

      What a lame take.

      Go to their server if you want to or one that don’t defederate, or spin one up yourself, the choice is still yours.

      I don’t want meta to benefit from my server, hosting their biased crap, how about that for a user choice.

        It’s your freedom as an admin to block them, but indeed the cost is the freedom of your users to communicate with people on Threads. As a user I would prefer an instance that doesn’t restrict my communications in that way.

          Freedom isn’t letting everything be or letting anyone do anything. That’s anarchy.

          When meta kills off 99% of Lemmy servers because they can, where’s your “freedom”?

            Freedom isn’t letting everything be or letting anyone do anything.

            I only talked about communicating with Threads users not “anything”.

            When meta kills off 99% of Lemmy servers

            Why should Meta be able to do this?

        The difference here, is that the person you responded to isn’t telling you what to do.

          Sure is, he’s saying I should Not defederate my server, and I do not say he should do anything at all. Are you just trolling?

          If he likes meta so much, just go there, you can still have your Lemmy account.

          Or go to a server not defederating.

          How hard can it be.

            They asked you why you hate user choice. They didn’t once tell you way to do. Yet, your again- tell him what he should do in your response.

            You directly told me to spin up my own server if I don’t like it lol, I didn’t tell anyone to do anything. Sharing an opinion isn’t the same thing as telling people what to do.
