Most of our blocks are imported from a Tier 0 blocklist from Oliphant.social; it's a high level of consensus of a list of the worst instances on the Fediverse. Our blocklist is displayed only to logged-on members, so that people keeping score of how much they're blocked, can't.
A couple more places are silenced or limited. The effect is like putting up fences, that people can talk over, but which prevent swarms.
We're running Hometown, which is currently based on a slightly older version of Mastodon; we lack the Mastodon v4.2 options to allow or disallow keyword searching of our public posts.
