So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

@Gargron I disagree, in principle, with blocking on sight, but since it's Gab, I'll have to agree :P

Then apparently you don't actually disagree on principle.

@jlcrawf @Gargron hum idk. What I meant was in theory - in terms of ideology - I disagree but I recognize Gab as one of the exceptions to the rule.

@pedro @Gargron
Why does there need to be an exception to the rule? It is fairly easy for users to not follow people that they disagree with. Why do they need to be "protected" to the point that they can not engage with them at all?
