meta, instance block question 

Hypothetical shower thought:

So, let's say there's a bad actor that keeps firing up single-user ActivityPub instances in order to be a jerk. To get around instance blocks without buying multiple domains, they create subdomains galore.

Would I have to block 1.[badinstancename].com, 2.[badinstancename].com, etc, OR

*[badinstancename].com, or,

would blocking [badinstancename].com effectively block all of them?

@theartguy As of the latest Mastodon version, blocking [badinstancename].com also blocks *.[badinstancename].com.
