I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.

My motivations:

- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.

That's over framagit.org/tom79/fedilab/com

I would only block an instance if I receive a clear ban warning from a store.
Without that it will be out of my role.


Sorry but if you think it's a sensible idea to enable (and thus support) a network of Nazis and people who dispute others right to life on the basis of their heritage, skin color or sexuality your wrong. I can't in no good conscience use or recommend fedilab under this circumstances but have to actively warn people. Very sorry I've liked fedilab from the beginning.

No, he isn't supporting those bastards. It is not his responsibility as an app developer for a "fediverseinteractor" to keep the fediverse safe from racism, bigotry, etc. It is ours, the users. That's the point of federation. Let the idiots have their playground, but don't let them spill their poison in our soup. Ask your instance admin to ban this f**kers, that's the right place.

@sthaydn @fedilab everyone needs to do his part and he's neglecting to do his.

I understand your motivation. And you are right that everyone should take responsibility. But still I think there is no need to integrate it inside the app. And after reading a lot of threads about it, I got the impression we are on gab right now. Please calm down everyone.
@fedilab is aware of his responsibility, and sure will take actions his way.

Based on your logic, @torproject should start blocking to the left and to the right various bad people as well.
How far can you go with that? America should block some south States for supporting Confederates?
Humanity should block sex, cause there are so many bad people have appeared in the result of sex?

@Azt3c @torproject @fedilab your comparison is bad and don't hold up at all. But yes you punch Nexus you don't fuck them.
