Eightpoint.app (8P) is a Mastodon instance that raised numerous alarm-flags for us almost immediately without crossing any obvious lines. I silenced them on 2022.12.14.



Timestamps are according to archive.org, probably UTC.

  • 2022.12.09: moderator is no "12of47", a user who also had a TootCat account. The following record is not intended as criticism of that user:
    • .12.07 19:46: toot.cat/@12of47 «thinkin about moving to eightpoint as our primary server. Let´s see if we can»
    • .12.07 21:57: toot.cat/@12of47 «will be spending most of our time on 12@eightpoint.app now, go follow us there, cuties»
    • .12.09 09:46: toot.cat/@12of47 «every single person who worked to get http://eightpoint.app shut down, we curse you to never find a home, to always feel fucking isolated from every space you ever exist in, to never feel safe to be yourself, as you are doing to us»
    • .12.09 14:08: toot.cat/@12of47 (three similar posts later) «we are now the new owner of http://eightpoint.app! We are fucking Kallai, and we will never die to the actions of the fash»
    • 12of47 (eightpoint.app/@12) remains admin of 8P as of 2022.12.20. (Whoever owns the domain and the server, of course, retains ultimate control, and we don't know who that is.)
