@twisterghost How about we donate to a fork which doesn't restrict usage of the application?

@masterofthetiger nah I'm good with donating to people who help stop the spread of hate 👍

@masterofthetiger no, no you're right

gab is a bastion of free speech. It's a place where people can be anything they want to be

It's a useful, excellent place that we _need_ in the online space

where nazis can freely out themselves, and gather into one place so its SUUUUPER easy to block them en masse

@twisterghost Then come up with a list of Nazis or something. Plus, why is it the app developer's place to do such a thing? Shouldn't the instance admins decide whether or not to federate with a certain instance?

@masterofthetiger

What they did doesn't prevent federation, for one.

Second, the app developers can do w/e they wanna do - they're the app developers. Its OSS. They've chosen to prevent gab users from using their interface. That's on them, I don't speak for their reasons, but I'm betting they have moral reasons and don't think whatever "costs" might outweigh their morals. They're not beholden to anyone.

There's other apps, forks, options. You use what you want. I'll stick with Tusky.
