 +==== Defederation policy ==== 
 + 
 +We can't go scouring the fediverse and defederating from all instances that are problematic, but if an issue crops up, this should be seen as a guideline for the Admin Action Squad on whether we should defederate with a given instance.  
 + 
 +*This is intended as the first step in defining our federation policy, not the last. It does not aim to be exhaustive, but to cover the basics. Further proposals on Loomio may amend and extend the points in this proposal.* 
 + 
 +This is what we expect from an instance we federate with: 
 + 
 +  - The instance must have a code of conduct. 
 +  - The instance's code of conduct must be enforced. The administration team of the instance should address reports appropriately and in a timely manner. 
 +  - The instance's code of conduct, and its stated and actual purpose, should be compatible with that of our instance, that is: 
 +    * Hate speech and harassment are disallowed. 
 +    * Content illegal in France shall not be allowed. 
 +    * Fascist and Nazi advocacy is disallowed. 
 + 
 + 
 +There are different scales along the path to defederation. 
 + 
 +  - Suspend (aka block) the instance. This blocks any federation between the two instances. 
 +  - Silencing the instance. When this happens, SBC members don't see content of the silenced instance unless they happen to follow specific people on that instance (and vice versa).
