@robotcarsley Thanks for the pointer! That sounds like a good place to start.

@robotcarsley @admin

@admin I think mastodon dot social's list is a good starting point.

This topic is on my mind too; I launched my instance this week.

@admin there was to archive the fediBlock hashtag, but the site says it's on indefinite hiatus
