Someone recently started to work on a native (as in: not based on Subsonic) android app for #Funkwhale. They are looking for feedback and ideas, so feel free to reach out on the corresponding discussion!

Spinster is not a safe space or an echo chamber. It's a platform for feminist dialogue.

We federate with Gab users are often right-wing or conservative. We allow them to write comments on our posts, to follow our users, and vice-versa. If you don't want this, you can personally apply a domain-level silence on your account to all Gab users with the instructions here:

We don't remove posts from Gab users if they don't break our rules. If you report a Gab user, please tick the box next to the post they made which violates our rules.

@phoe @jhol @elsacodelcoco @DaveCullen >As for "literal fascists", I have seen the Gab timeline at various points of time. I saw hoaxes like the ones that way 5G is a mortal danger, vaccines are a mortal danger

Ah, yes, the long and storied history of fascists... uh... spreading conspiracy theories about 5G networks.... I mean, remember when the Nazis put those Jews in concentration camps because they thought they were subverting and undermining interwar Germany with their jewy cell phones and jewish reception towers?

@a @gab

#FDroid seems to have decided not to ban #Fedilab.

"As long as Fedilab doesn’t actively promote the gab instance or, it being compatible with it, I see no reason how the app promotes any bigotry.

Neither does a web-browser because it doesn’t include a blocklist for alt-right websites."

"About Fedilab. As I stated earlier, we don’t think it is promoting any bigotry and in conflict with any of the proposed inclusion guidelines."

However they've made an ominous statement.

"While an antifeature doesn’t make sense, we do need to overhaul our inclusion guidelines. This means besides the requirement for fully free software, we need to think about what will not be tolerated inside the repository. This is not an easy thing to do and still a work in progress.

When we are done with that there will be people who won’t agree with our guidelines."

Talking about people being dissatisfied with the policy implies they're going to come down hard on one side or the other. Which side remains to be seen.

Adobe Creative Cloud holds creative works hostage: if you stop paying the monthly fee or if Adobe's servers go down, you can't edit your work. Once you buy into the Adobe ecosystem, you're stuck there and forced to pay rent.

There are many free open alternatives which give you full control over your work without locking you down:

@admin (This really feels *bad*. If the admin of one of the oldest and most well-maintained mastodon instances starts talking about the #fediverse as a toxic world, things seem to have taken a considerably difficult swing. Lessons learnt, again and again: Running instances it not something that happens "automatically". It's not trivial, and it's not easy, on many different levels. It's something that *needs* to be taken into account when trying to find a viable, sustainable alternative ...

FYI I wish I could just trash this instance and leave this toxic world that is the fediverse (at least as an admin), but many people trusted me by signing up here for the last 2 years, and even though there are only a few hundreds of active users, I can't let you down, and I won't. But I regret the decision I made more 2 years ago. I guess this had to happen one day or another. I'm fed up with this.

Hello there.

Since I didn't ban the gab™ for now, we've been banned from a few instances. If you know which ones, please answer this toot so I can update the block list.

Another mastodon user being #gabpilled . It's funny the people slitting digital throats & cyberbullying people into silence think they're "fighting fascism" - hey #mastodon, keep banning users for asking questions & expressing their opinions - it helps the #anticensorship movent grow. @a

Bou boosted is looking for a new maintainer!

If nobody comes forward by 2020, it'll be forced to shut down. Please boost to spread the word.

Note that this is the podcast-sharing website: I'm not sure about the status of the app, but I think that's still doing fine.

@a There has been some discussion on the Mastodon github of hardcoding a block of Gab's instance.

I think Gab users should deliberately seek out users on other instances (There are lots of good users out there who post art, for example!) and give them some favorites, reposts, positive and friendly mentions, and follows.

That way, if server admins do an "upgrade" to a newer version of Mastodon and suddenly find themselves unable to communicate with their Gab follower base, they will feel the pain, and let the Mastodon devs know that is unacceptable.

Mastodon is one of the instance in the fediverse. We're an open-minded generalistic instance. Learn more here!
