Suspended accounts shouldn't count


#1

(I wonder if/when deleting accounts will be possible. Meanwhile…)

Currently suspended accounts seem to count as much as valid accounts in Mastodon instances’ statistics. For instance, our instance has about 30 legitimate (and active) users, but in the past days we got many spam accounts (now suspended). Yet as of now our instance reports 91 users, social.instances believes this and therefore joinmastodon.org reports these numbers as well.

The whole thing is totally misleading. Is there a way to keep our instances data honest or is there an issue about this already?

I can see rixx reported this on Github already:
