Anyway, I am super angry right now and don't really know what to do 😭
@ConnyDuck a lot of this shit recently has been poorly applied automation and it gets rectified when attention is drawn to it.
Take a breath, there are a lot of people who'll have your back on this. Give us a chance to spread the word.
@ConnyDuck does this mean Google has to ban their own Mail app because it doesn't force you to accept every terms of service on the internet
Well, they have changed the way email behaves in their world - which is what people think is the internet - enough that it now _is._
They can't do that to the fediverse, so they'll just remove any mention of it.
I predict mastodon things being pushed further down in search results coming soon, but... maybe I'm being overly negative...
@Bobo_PK @ConnyDuck It’s a good thing Mozilla writes about The Decentralized Web of Hate on their blog about various decentralized platforms being a haven for extremists and supremacists such as yourself. It’s a good thing The Guardian thinks open source is inherently racist, misogynistic, and fascist which most likely I think you’d agree, but I’d think you were a shining example of hypocrisy and nothing less. It’s a good thing the media is already against you.
@ConnyDuck hum, from that screenshot, I can see it is a grqb froma animalliberarion, which is a Alex Gleasson special (he is a terf)
@ConnyDuck All the best to resolving this!
Matrix (Element and other clients) had a similar problem very recently. For them it seemed to help to send them a a variation of the following text: https://element.io/blog/element-on-google-play-store/
@ConnyDuck where is that for review? Does it make sense to check the rules for browsers? The same rules would theoretically apply to browsers which can be used to the web interface of Mastodon servers, right. So there should be a way to formulate the stuff UGC compliant.
@maxheadroom @ConnyDuck seems to be this Matrix room - https://matrix.to/#/!PWkUGGpeMZWDPmdfRE:matrix.org?via=matrix.org&via=kde.org&via=mozilla.org
@ConnyDuck Google doesn't understand decentralization and that there's no central Tusky server. Keep up all the great work on Tusky and boycott Google.
@ConnyDuck That same requirement exists for the Apple App Store.
It is a little bit weird, but also I think it's not an entirely bad thing either. It does force people to think about what the rules of an instance are, and that they do exist.
@ConnyDuck You are right. In their minds, the business model can only be: 1. user generates content 2. I own that content 3. I am responsible for that content 4. I make someone els clean up the mess (or at least automatize it)
But very probably, they have improved their automatic detectors and as others suggested, it expects an EULA screen or something. The message is surely coming from a service. I have no idea whether a complaint can ever get to a real human... or whether they care at all.
@ConnyDuck Is the highlight on the first picture yours? It seems to me the issue might be more so with the second point... Someone misunderstood the difference between the server's terms and policies with the app's terms and policies... It seems the app policies can't be more free than Google Play's own?
@ConnyDuck lol Google not even trying to look legit in the slightest why am I not surprised, I’m glad they’re getting sued around the world for how they treat devs, fuck Google
@ConnyDuck It's still on f-droid.
I don't trust the Android store, it's Google.
I'm more trusting of F-droid.
But, yes, "the majority of users." But it's not "removed from the internet." It's "removed by a player who will change the rules on you to their advantage at any time, and they don't care about you."
@ConnyDuck if that's viable option for you, you might consider installing the f-droid client on your device and get tusky from there (also yes, you were probably aware of this but worth trying)
