Solutions for matrix spam bots
Many of the current iteration of spam bots have cryptocurrency in their mxid. If you see someone with a cryptocurrency mxid join, immediately ban them. They also seem to join 100s or 1000s or even 10 000s of rooms before they spam a message. If you are in like 3 medium sized rooms with completely unrelated topics, if you see @robbert joined all 3 of the rooms within an hour or so, pretty good chance it's a spam bot. Earlier iterations had profile picture of real people, prob taken from instagram. Mostly crypto spam, but i've seen one selling graphene phones. If they aren't banned, they will sometimes later activate again with a new ad. **Should be possible to do with a bot too, if anyone comes across one that i dont have to self host hmu.** If you don't want to ban, you can mute them and tell them to DM you their favorite color to prove they are made of flesh.

We’re a collective of individuals upset with the way social media has been traditionally governed. A severe lack of moderation has led to major platforms like Facebook to turn into political machinery focused on disinformation campaigns as a way to make profit off of users. Websites with ineffective moderation allow hate speech to proliferate and contribute to the erosion of minority rights and safe spaces. Our goal with Beehaw is to demonstrate and promote a healthier environment.

Some thoughts on our philosophy:

Operating our server costs money. If you donate, you should know that 100% of the costs will go towards server time, licensing costs, and artwork. In the future if we need to hire developers or other labor, it would be sourced through the Open Collective Foundation, and it would be transparent to the community before any changes were made.

As a news aggregator and a social media outlet, with a focus on being a safe and accepting space, we strive to create a positive social impact. We will, also, help to connect underprivileged and minority individuals with education and civic participation by promoting a healthier online experience.
