The decision to block Humblr.
A couple of days ago Displaced.social blocked Humblr from interacting with our systems. We have nothing against Humblr directly but the costs and risks of being closely tied to such a large instance are too great to be ignored.
Humblr is a massive community and through federation Displaced.social was hit with unsustainable database and storage growth. Another downside of being connected to such a large community is the risk of unintentionally storing or transferring potentially illegal media. There will always be risk involved in any public community but this particular level of risk is one that I, the legal owner of Displaced.social, cannot accept.
So, what does this mean for us. Well, blocking Humblr meant blocking over 900 accounts on Displaced.social. That means if you had followed an account from Humblr it will no longer be displayed and will have been removed from your follows list. It sucks this had to be an all or nothing situation but there was really no other way.
If you have any questions be sure to let me know,
