I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.

My motivations:

- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.


I have to wonder how you'll feel when gab is promoting your app as the preferred way for its users to access the fediverse. When you see that spike of downloads, and know why. I know this isn't the kind of problem you ever thought you'd have to deal with, but I know how I'd feel.
