Racism meta, USA
Some days I feel America (USA) is way ahead of the rest of the world, when it comes to recognizing and dealing with racism. Not saying America is perfect, but at least Americans recognize the issue and made some progress coping.

@purism I support anyone who works to spread Linux and freedom of computing to the mainstream but I have to point out that your decision to remove the ability to report abusive behavior on your instance is a bad move.
Abuse reports are a basic function of this network and disregarding this tool means disregarding the community at large.
Without the ability to let you know when one of your members is being abusive your instance will end up being blacklisted and that would be unfair to your paying users.
