Because I consider the users here smart enough to decide what they want or don't want to see, mstdn.io might get blocked from an unknown amount of number of instances.
Sorry if this is affecting you, but this is my take on it.
@ users: feel free to move to another instance if you don't agree with this. You have every right to do so.
@ admins: feel free to ban mstdn.io if you really think that's what you have to do.
@admin it is a small but very vocal minority policing instances. Pay them no mind.
@admin You gotta do what you gotta do, but I hope this instance will remain in operation and that its policies won't change.
@mattskala As far as I can tell, nothing will change.
@admin who are these guys?
@astheroth I don't know, but its got a lot of rt
@admin nah, it is not worth to lose the time on it. Some people take shitposting too seriously to follow the game, better let them alone in their isle of isolation
I read the thread, those guys are crazy, becoming as toxic as who they fight... don't let them get to you...
I'm not offended, why would I be ? I don't know gab since they're not interracting yet (that's the whole point). I'm not policing, just stopping you from distorting my language. And now you're trying to box me in a (presumably toxic?) term. See the pattern ? You're a demonstration all by yourself.
BTW, if gab are really right wing terrorists, like all terrorists they want you to fundamentally change your society (here the fediverse) in response to their actions. By preemptively blocking them and acting against those who don't, you fall for their trap and give them exactly what they want.
@admin thanks for standing by your principles and not giving into the angry mob
@admin I don't really care.. I think openness is the best way to combat hatred. Creating small bubbles of confirmation bias silos is not the way.
You got my full support!
What they are doing is counterproductive...
@admin Sadly, I guess this is the same people for this kind of law https://www.laquadrature.net/en/2019/04/08/european-parliament-accepts-mass-censorship-terrorism-regulation/ and don't catch the concept of web neutrality.
Continue like this and goog luck
@admin sad, but keep going with your own idea.
social media == high school?
@admin Well, if other instances block this one, it's their own problem, they are missing out
@admin Would you consider silencing them instead of blocking them fully? It keeps their content from showing up to those not looking for it. While we are organizing to explain how instance blocking gab is justified and not violating free speech, silencing their instances while not blocking them is a "middle ground" of sorts that some admins are doing, and we hope you will consider it.
