Looming shitstorm warning.
Gab, noted haven for racists, misogynists, and literal Nazis, is intending to fork Mastodon and join the fediverse.
Their aim is to sidestep being banned from the main App Stores by allowing any Mastodon client to use their service.
Obviously, this also means that they'll federate, and they're openly excited about the trolling possibilities.
Mastodon admins concerned by this should block their instance from federation when they cut over to their fork.
@aurynn oh sweet jesus k8s is such an overengineered mess. it’s great ongoing but, as I’m sure you’re entirely aware, initial build and config is an overly verbose hellscape.
@dave I’m lucky that I’m able to rely on OpenStack Magnum for most of the initial build but yeahbhhhhhhhhhhhhh it’s been , uh , exciting.
I’m launching a paid instance which is why I’m over engineering it a bunch, and spending extra time on legal and design work and stuff.
