FOSTA/SESTA Show more
Hey. Are people talking about the impact of FOSTA and SESTA on mastodon?
According to this twitter thread (https://twitter.com/CookieCyboid/status/1070751515823013889) Any instance can be sued if you allows even a *single* sexual solicitation to occur.
What does this mean for those of us that don't block instances like switter.at? Are we liable for their violations of this law?

One of the head prosecutors for the EFF reached out to me directly and offered their thoughts: because of how ambiguously the laws were written, it's impossible to predict how they can or will be enforced without precedent to inform the prediction.
My thoughts were that we should pool resources to collectively hire a lawyer on retainer to represent us should it become necessary.
