@inditoot well it's really hard to say, because all the information available is shattered in various threads on the fediverse, or on eunomia.social/ itself, but in a quite vague way.

Apparently, it's a system/platform to assess the trustworthiness of information out here.

They don't say how they plan to do that, but it will apparently involve scoring information/accouts and blockchain based infrastructure, according to their handbook (eunomia.social/EUNOMIA-D1%202-)

@Satak @inditoot you can dig more about this using the hashtag (todon.nl/tags/eunomia).

There's absolutely nothing in this that makes me think "oh it actually could be a good idea".

@DashEquals @Satak @inditoot it's still a project at this point, so I don't know if and how they will do so.

That being say, Gargron is involved directly in the EUnomia consortium so we can expect some kind of collaboration / integration (not sure at what level).

The fact I'm silencing Mastodon.social is a way to boycott this and the neverending growth of their instance

@inditoot
@DashEquals @eliotberriot
Gargron is not the person I would trust to do what is the best for the community/what the community wants

@inditoot @DashEquals @Satak well it's up to instance admins to decide what they want to do and how.

I'm not recommending people do or don't do the same, I'm expressing why I personally did it because it's important for me to explain the rationale behind this kind of moderation decisions.

@inditoot
I kinda disagree with that, because unless the instance is doing something abusive (or isn't dealing with abusive members) breaking federation doesn't seem to be worth it.
@eliotberriot @Satak

@DashEquals @inditoot @Satak even if it's opt-in, how are you supposed to opt-out afterwards on something that relies on a blockchain to store data?

Blockchains are immutable by design, you cannot delete content from them.

And I don't feel great about anyone using " a variety of machine learning and deep learning classifiers […] to minimise any
noticeable effect of bias."

@eliotberriot
I'm no fan of this project either (don't think it would do any good), I just don't think it's that *bad*, either. It seems like another thing that will probably just be forgotten about in a few weeks once they realize that no one will use it.
@inditoot @Satak

@neudre
Ah, good to know. That should probably be communicated a bit more clearly.
@eliotberriot @Satak @inditoot @Gargron

@inditoot
I'd like to know too. I seems like a rating of trustiness of user or something, right ?
