The word 'leftist' in the instance description should be replaced with something more specific

How do 'linked instances' work?

The instances link at the bottom goes to a list of “blocked instances” and “linked instances”. What I don’t get is what linking means, because it sounds like a whitelisting thing, but if lemmy federation is a whitelisting system, then what would blocking mean, as opposed to just not linking? …

I think this is concerning, since this can easily bring unwanted attention to Lemmy and could be used against it (and it is really disturbing to se…
