“Move fast and break things” is an abomination if your goal is to create a healthy society.

Here is this - i compiled this from a list that various #FediAdmins had been sharing.
It is as complete a list as I can compile of the confirmed, affiliated, and possible #Gab instances, includes notes, and everything you can do in Google Sheets, but it is not that. It is CryptPad Sheets.
You will need to login to Cryptpad to view, and later I can send edit links to trusted allies. I included a screen cap for those not wanting to login, even to a system as secure as Cryptpad.

Another more secure link to allow for group edits to come.
