Moderation

One topic that is important for the decentralized technology ecosystem is how moderation is handled. Subsocial respects censorship resistance by not blocking content at the root level (on-chain); however, we also understand the necessity of being able to moderate your personal space in order to remove unrelated content, remove troll posts, or otherwise moderate inappropriate content.

A single set of moderation rules like Twitter is too rigid and pushes all users to adopt the same perspectives in order to avoid being censored. Moderation per space means “your space, your rules.” These rules are handled by the chain. In addition, it is possible to modify the UI to allow for greater control over the content displayed.

Different spaces can have different rules for moderation, but they all share the same blockchain. Subsocial is the glue for binding all the spaces together.
