MASTODON I LITERALLY HAVE THIS PERSON BLOCKED AND THEIR INSTANCE DEFEDERATED WHY DO I KEEP SEEING THEM AROUND

me:
mastodon: hey wanna see a post from someone responding to two people you dont follow, both of which you have defederated??

website boy I am begging you to stop showing me weirder earth and skullsite bullshit

why can weirder earth even see my posts. I responded to sid and somehow the liberal anticommunists can still reply to me in turn even though I cant see their replies

how does this even work.
dads.cool and t.g federate. I reply to dads.cool.
dads.cool federates with weirder.earth so apparently weirder.earth sees my reply despite being defederated????

@kiosk I think it goes like this:

You reply to dads.cool, and it stores a copy of that reply there. Since dads.cool doesn't know who you're fedrated/defederated with, it can show your response to anyone they're federated with. When someone responds to you, dads.cool gets a copy of the response, but since you are defederated, the server rejects it on your end.

@erinbee thats probably it yeah!

its still pretty bad though

@kiosk Yeah, it sucks. I'm just not sure what the best way to get around that is either :(
