Almost everything I see from there is blatant anti-western propaganda, but since they’re the “main instance”, their sheer volume overwhelms some parts. Such as Sopuli’s community->all -view.

Or am I just in the wrong place myself and I should just vanish back to reddit?

Vanishing back to reddit solves nothing. Engaging and contributing helps grow the network.

Well, I don’t support people trolling within or across instances, but I think ideologies of any kind should be tolerated. I upvote any political post as long as it is intended to be honest, fun or otherwise constructive for us. Also in my opinion it’s nice to be reminded that whatever your side is, the other side is always right in one thing: you are being manipulated.

You might like nrsk.no, it doesn’t block any instances – i.e. expects users to filter their feed themselves

As lemmy.ml is a big instance with lots of users and communities, Sopuli would lose lots of discussion by defederating from it. I’d leave it up to Sopuli’s users whether to discuss in the instance’s communities or not. This isn’t a situation where an instance as a whole is toxic (like with lemmygrad.ml and wolfballs.com). The “main instance” has certainly propagandist anti-western actors, and I have banned several of them. As @graphito@lemmy.ml suggests, banning those actors is enough, and the users can of course use blocking.

Not at all, this kind of issue has been in the air for some time. There is no need to go back to Reddit!

I think the best way to go about it, is simply to do instance wide ban to main actors. 2-3 bans will clear 80 % of the problem. On the personal level you can block them as well

Indeed, it is only a few notorious posters that spam most of the stuff you find objectionable. In fact, I think a single ban of the “Yoghurt guy” will solve your problem ;)

I think a lot of instances (including sopuli) already banned my yoggie buddy. I have to login to lml just to see his posts 😂!
