@dirtyjose @Gargron Except that it is. The thing causing the atmosphere in question is that some people agree with Gargron and some people vehemently don't, and the reason that they don't agree is because they are incredibly uncomfortable with someone who has a horrible history gaining a foothold on Mastodon.
Ignoring the actual context of the drama is naive and pointless.
People feel Gargron is protecting an abusive person. That's pretty fucking relevant to the discussion.
