PSA (domain block):
Within around a minute I was followed by 500+ bots from @weedis.life and then within another minute was unfollowed by all of them. Essentially a denial-of-service attack. Haven't seen or heard of that before.
@andreas you should report that and ask to get the instance blocked, it's gab
@canary Yeah, quickly after that occurred I was able to suspend that domain 👍
@andreas yeah, I had that yesterday.
I actually had to restart my phone because of all the notifications, and then the emails mirroring the notifications.
@magicalmilly Ugg yeah, same happened for me. Looking at the user list on weedis.life, there are many more, similarly-named users/bots: https://weedis.life/users/Stoned2TheBone/followers?page=4
@andreas i'm calling that move 'forced federation' because that's the end result
@andreas same thing happened to me. Interesting... maybe this is just the first wave.
@andreas It has happened to me too
