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.
Excellent article by @maxeddy on PCMag about moving from Twitter to Mastodon:
Toxic internet, political manipulation
Toxic accounts are manipulating us:
"The network was coordinated to share information which was completely contradictory."
"...all of it was calculated to provoke exactly the same response: outrage. This strategy is all about inhabiting *both* ends of the political spectrum, and to pull them further and further, angrier and angrier apart."
It's very subtle and very dangerous: if we hate each other, democracy and peace fall apart.

It rests on a naive, ahistorical view of anarchism as a system of extreme individualism rather than a radical tradition of direct democracy on the local scale which *federates* those organisations on a larger scale.
That's directly analogous to the system we're chatting on now!
That's the theory, and @brainblasted lays out clearly what it means in practical terms.
You watch one video of Tim pool lying to Joe rogan and get white nationalist shit showing up in recommendations on youtube.
#AI has failed us.
I'm all for freedom of speech. I don't mind differing opinions, even the horrible ones, but grey and black propaganda shouldn't be actively pushed in front of people.

Labour MP Siobhain Mcdonagh: “to be anti-capitalism is to be anti-semitic”
Yes, obviously, because according to her the jews control the... hang on a sec, who was antisemitic again?

Has anyone made a tv show set in a world where the police and courts are controlled by an AI.
A serial killer gets away with murder in broad daylight because they can game the system by doing stuff like wearing one red shoe on a wednesday, only entering shops 47 seconds into a minute and crossing the street backwards.
Oh no peertube.social is having server problems. Guess I'll just use peertube.mastodon.host until it's sorted itself out.
Yet another accidental benefit of the #fediverse being it's inherent redundancy.
@switchingsocial what's your opinion on syncthing? I find it pretty useful as an alternative to Dropbox and that, but I'm not seeing it on your website. Is it sketchy?
Peertube is a thing now, so I'm sticking this here.
We should instead use crypto technology to create unowned businesses and remove bad employers from the economy.
@email@example.com I think the results of my work and my choices speak for themselves, and I am quite happy with those results. Mastodon has reinvigorated the federated web, it has gained the kind of foothold that no predecessor had before; it's a FOSS project that appeals to non-tech people. It's the first real, respectable alternative to Twitter.
I'm not gonna hate myself over that, if that's what you're expecting.
