Fascists and Nazis can h*ck right off and are NOT welcome on our platform. #pixelfed
@pixelfed ok who runs this account now this does not sound like dandsup
@anna Nobody else has access to that account 😉
@anna why wouldn't it be dan
@trwnh ohhhhhh right right yeah.... its totally dan..... i forgot...................
@anna It was! The original version was a bit more harsh.
I never thought I would have to say that, I naively thought it was already apparent by my actions and previous toots.
@dansup i just dont see you writing the h*ck part lmao
@anna It wouldn't be the first time. I don't swear around children.
@dansup while there are minors on my instance, it is my job to teach them curses
@pixelfed "H*ck" meme is super cringey
@Lonsfor hi racist owl guy!
Curious, do you know him from before or do you just define your race as anime?
@pixelfed I don't agree with this decision as I prefer to allow users to have ultimate power in what they filter out.
But I also understand the need for a good default experience. The best solution I see is maybe having default instance blocks but allowing users to unblock them.
Either way, pixelfed is still awesome overall and agree with everything else you do so I will continue to support 😊
@geotechland perhaps you may prefer to think about it as an example. e.g. "for example, this is how you configure COSTAR to reject gab domains” 😇
@trwnh I have no idea what you meant by this 😅
@pixelfed you should just stop
Fuck off with this blocking other domain shit
This stuff is stupid
@pixelfed it took me a while to find out what "gab" is XD
If others are confused too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gab_%28social_network%29
#gab seems to be a platform/website/social media service. So it's a service not a software. With focus on far right content and freedom of speech (to spread that content).
Blocking those by default is a good idea I think :)
@deusfigendi they are switching to their fork of Mastodon, so it’ll become open source software too
@deusfigendi @pixelfed Gab used, or is still using a centralized interface like Twitter, but because the money train is falling apart on them, because no normal people want to join their dumpsterfire, they're moving to a decentralized interface like Mastodon and Pixelfed. This means they can interact with mastodon users, but most instances already preemptively blocked their domains.
@deusfigendi it looks like it.
So you become the thing you hate Nice
Sur le besoin de la censure, sur les difficulté de la mettre en place
@pixelfed your reaction was not really straightforward. Give credit to the non-privileged people who took a considerable amount of time and energy to convince you that it was the thing to do.
@pixelfed You are awesome. Thank you.
Given the account that posted, I am not sure if you either blocked the domain in software, and all instance will inherit this or if you blocked it on Pixelfed.social. Could you be more specific on this?
@kaiyou It is a software level block.
