unhinged tusky fascism rant 

it absolutely blows my mind that some people think that forking and removing the gab rick roll easter egg block from tusky means the fork is fascist software by fascists for facists. it's such a low bar and i can't believe i've had this discussion more than 0 times

unhinged tusky fascism rant 

like first of all, there's a large swath of people that believe software shouldn't have artificial blocks in them for any reason (myself included), including people in the original pull request objecting to the block. we're not NECESSARILY fascists- useful idiots in the war against fascism at the worst i imagine. but intent matters here- the block being removed isn't necessarily to allow people to use fascist instances, but to use ANY instance.

unhinged tusky fascism rant 

it's not possible to conclude much about fascist intent from removing a block since there's a lot of different reasons you'd do it for. so in freetusky's case, was it done to specifically allow people to access gab and do fascism?

it's hard to tell because the author seems fairly private and freetusky as a project or in its code or its 13 commits hasn't clarified this. it could go either way.
