Fascists and Nazis can h*ck right off and are NOT welcome on our platform. #pixelfed
@pixelfed it took me a while to find out what "gab" is XD
If others are confused too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gab_%28social_network%29
#gab seems to be a platform/website/social media service. So it's a service not a software. With focus on far right content and freedom of speech (to spread that content).
Blocking those by default is a good idea I think :)
@deusfigendi @pixelfed Gab used, or is still using a centralized interface like Twitter, but because the money train is falling apart on them, because no normal people want to join their dumpsterfire, they're moving to a decentralized interface like Mastodon and Pixelfed. This means they can interact with mastodon users, but most instances already preemptively blocked their domains.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
