updated Soapblock list for today with 125 new entries: https://github.com/VyrCossont/Soapblock/blob/main/soapbox.csv
note that the only criteria for the Soapblock list is ongoing detection of a Soapbox backend or frontend on the instance domain or one of its subdomains. if you're aware of an instance running Soapbox which is not on that list, please let me know; likewise, let me know if you believe an instance is no longer using Soapbox anywhere and should be removed.
the scanner source will be published when i get around to it, but meanwhile, any entry on the list can be independently verified by anyone by visiting the subdomain mentioned in the blocklist comment.
background: Soapbox is TERF software. the developer, Alex Gleason, is open about his transphobia. he has worked for hate sites Gab and Truth.social to get funding for Soapbox. most of the Soapbox flagship server list has been banned from mastodon.social due to hate speech and/or specifically transphobia, and are also on the Oliphant T0 list. do i really need to paint more of a picture?
to the people who will inevitably respond "separate the software from the author": software is a process with a community attached. it's never just software. Soapbox is a TERF's resume. you run it, everyone knows you've decided to look the other way and work with Gleason and that community for software updates, further enabling hate speech. if you actually plan to fully separate, look to Akkoma's example: hard fork, rebrand, and set a code of conduct.
keep TERFs off Fedi.
Whatever you do, do not use Soapbox for your #fediverse needs.
The creator and maintainer, Alex Gleason, of Soapbox (or Rebased as it was called) is anti-trans and was previously the head of engineering of the Trump-related social network (Truth Social).
He also worked on Poast, which was a social network for neo-nazis and a direct successor to Kiwi Farms.
Steer clear of it.

Usually you phrase your sentences in a way that makes misinterpreting hard.
Which is the proper choice.
It's good to see that you're actually posting content here in the #Fediverse and direct links to project sites instead of links to the deprecated, privacy disrespecting, legacy monolithic silos like #Twatter and #InstaSPAM.
Welcome to the Fediverse! 🤘😎🤘
