Why is bitcoinhackers.org the example used by Mastodon docs on how to block an entire server???
@lukedashjr 90% of mastodon instances have commie admins
@GrandVizierOfMalta @jb55 I think "the vast majority" is a bad guess and nowhere near proven fact. There's always a very vocal minority in culture wars like that, and they usually try to look like a majority. I don't see an obvious reason for Gab to stop federating, merely because some large instances blocked them. Why would that make it "pointless"?
@raucao @jb55 - I don't know exact numbers but I know from experience that every single instance I tried to connect with (including most of the larger ones that make up about 80%+ of all users) had banned Gab.
Mastodon founder Rochko, said, "If you join a major Mastodon instance right now, chances are you won’t be connected to Gab. "All the admins that I know, that I interact with myself, have already blocked Gab," says Rochko — including Mastodon.Social. "Essentially, they’re isolated.""
APPL & GOOG banned them from the store & threatened to ban ANY Fediverse app that allowed them to connect.
They did everything their power to shut them down.
F-Droid banned them.
Their host banned them.
Their banks banned them.
Many more services banned them for no other reason than the fact that the CEO strongly supports liberty & free speech and will allow you to post anything that isn't illegal in the US. Oh, and he's also a bitcoiner.
