@anthracite @bea they could be called Trusted Instances or trysts

@anthracite also my idea required mutual approval

i.e. you can't just add cybre.space, they have to add you too

@InspectorCaracal These are all good ideas! I can *definitely* see the desire for "tell me that X% of my friends are blocking this person/place" rather than "block whoever X% of my friends are blocking and tell me about it after the fact".

@anthracite i like these ideas but i'm unsure about an auto-block. at most i think i'd want that information available in the CP (instances blocked by friend instances) but i review each instance that people recommend me to block to see whether it warrants a block in my case and how severe if so - having that happen automatically could lead to worse pile-on problems than we already have i think

@chr You're not the first to feel this way, clearly the configuration here needs to be something like "when (X%) of friends block an instance/person, (tell me|silence them and tell me|block them and tell me)".

Probably with the ability to have different percentages and actions for people and instances.
