They don't seem to understand that one can view any content with Tusky and that it is not possible for the app developers to check any of it.

Maybe it is also due to some Gabholes mass reporting the app again?

Anyway, I am super angry right now and don't really know what to do 😭

here is a screenshot from play console and the screenshot they attached which seems not to be related at all


I have to work until 17:00 cet, will figure out what to do then.
Thx to all of you wanting to help. What I could need is some reports of similar problems and what worked in order to resolve them.

I posted a draft of the appeal message in the Tusky matrix chat, can anyone who is better at such things have a look at it?

@ConnyDuck writing to heise and wired can help a lot. Press is the language these companies speak.

@Bobo_PK @ConnyDuck and maybe promote fdroid more? ^^ i only use the Playstore if i have to. every other app i get from fdroid

@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 Ahhh they want us to show terms? But it's only relevant for signup, not login…

@charlag @ConnyDuck can you even sign up through tusky? i only ever used it to login after the fact

@piggo @charlag you can click on "signup" on most instances login screens, that's where they must have gotten that screenshot from

@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:

@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.

@ConnyDuck as many have suggested, adding a notice that the app is not affliated with any server and does not endorse any content etc should be enough
