Remember that Gab is a sinking ship and they're basically grabbing onto Mastodon like a parasite in a desperate attempt to get attention from the "drama" of doing so.
Torba has no self-awareness to see how pathetic it looks that his master race ass is incompetent at making a working website so he has to resort to using software made by a Jew instead.
App devs will block their domains, server admins will block their domains, and that'll be the end of that.
i will forever use canny, mate, and other random global white terminology as the accentless weirdo of amalgamated mmo culture ive gathered that i am.
You've also forgot to mention that 99% of other Fediverse users are going to HATE THEM
They are be flamed allll day long, it'll be a shit time.
@rah The issue is that gab is a far-right shithole that spreads its poison and radicalises its users, and needs to be shut down, blocked and fought in ever single way possible.
@WAHa_06x36 If software is free, it's free for all. Even murderers and white supremacists. Like security/encryption.
Accept people, expose people - shoving shit under the carpet is not the same as cleaning up. It will rot and stink more (even explode). Better shine a light on it and it'll turn into stone, rather.
@neb And look how well all that light has worked. The far right is bigger and stronger than ever, and is killing large amounts of people.
When are you expecting that light to start working? How many more do you think we will have to let die first?
In the choice between the fight for human rights and software freedom, software freedom counts as much as a fart in a hurricane.
@neb Like, are you really going to go "Yeah, if you want to be in our COOL FREE SOFTWARE CLUB, you're gonna HAVE to let nazis and murderers use your software. That's how we know you're LEGIT."
You know what? No thanks, that kind of "free software" can go take a flying fuck at the moon. I'm out.
Yes, Nazis and murderers have the same rights as any other groups/individuals. Or is mob-rule the new shit?
You're putting human rights against free software? They go hand in hand, actually.
You are free to leave, just as you, and all other peeps, are free to enter (and abide by the rules and common sense behaviour).
Then again the admins are also free to ban groups and individuals they disagree with.
Just as governments are free to ban encryption, etc.
I think you need some statistics to show these __large amounts__. Murderers are criminals, no matter what ideologies they adhere to.
Would they be murderers if __the light of the public eye__ shone upon them? Their dark ideas were discussed? If we weren't in our __identity bubbles__ (these echo chambers), but freely exchanged ideas without the hate?
We love to find supporting groups, and if that group is isolated their ideas grow stale and rotten. And **dangerous**.
@neb All of that is happening already. Neonazis are getting fawning newspaper articles written about how well they dress.
Yet the people are dead anyway. The light of the public eye did fuck all.
Murderers kill people, that every freedom you could ever have not being respected and being retracted from their victim.
The Far Right also do not respect the freedom of other.
So I don't see why I should respect theirs.
Peple like you only defend the free speech of murderers, you only defend horrible people saying horrible things.
You're more than happy to censor their critics in the name of free speech. Because you believe that only murderers should have freedom of speech.
@neb @geoneiluk @WAHa_06x36 People's freedom to be Nazis ends where starts that of others to not be killed or detained for the ethnicity colonial empires arbitrarily assigned them, and as such this freedom doesn't exist.
Unless you considered one's freedom to advocate for an ethnic purge to be more important than one's right to not be purged.
This reminds me of **Animal Farm** by __George O.__; basically __noone is free until all are free__. Human rights apply to **ALL** humans - also those we disagree with. Also those who would burn us in camps and slaughter our tribes.
We have laws against such crimes. Unfortunately also against controversial opinions. Threats of violence are not OK, except if they come from the government which has a monopoly on it.
@Gargron The thing about gab joining the fediverse is that their domains are domains where only Nazis will go, it's the reason why Gab is failing, because any branbd that's associated with toxic discriminatory bollocks is a brand nobody wants to associate with.
Even if not blocked, a Tooter with a gab.ai domain has already outed themselves.
