Just wanted to keep everyone in the loop. If you encounter an issue where you cannot post or comment, but voting is functioning correctly, it is most likely because we have implemented a block for VPN & Tor users. If you are using these services, you can still take part in activities such as voting, reporting posts, and performing other passive actions on the site. We implemented this restriction because of users posting illegal content.

See https://lemmy.world/post/11571711

While we value our users’ right to privacy, we also prioritize the protection of both ourselves and our users. We want to emphasize that we weigh the pros and cons of restrictions like these with the entire team. We do not take these actions lightly, and we hope everyone understands the reasoning behind it.

    Yeah, my main thought was if the body contains any kind of URI/url from those IP sources, you could drop it as you are now. Or possibly just ![. And obviously any post with a url field. Not sure where you collaborate (Lemmy matrix maybe?) but I wouldn’t mind throwing together a POC if it would be considered. I don’t even use Lemmy on VPN but I’m definitely interested in helping the community.
