OK. Some people keep rating the app one star because I don't block an instance.
Unfortunately, their lack of comprehension concerning the Fediverse (manipulated by some propaganda) make they think that the app is not safe to use.
You have every tools with the app to avoid interacting with people you don't want to see.
@fedilab can you elaborate on the propaganda in the instance you won't block? Was it, for example, tied to an extremist terrorist attack?
No I won't
@fedilab you were just talking about propaganda to defend your decision a moment ago, so why don't we talk about the instance you're supporting?
The #synagoguemassacre suspect was radicalized there for example.
I don't support anything. I won't block anything as far as a market doesn't ask me to do so.
It's useless, it doesn't protect from seeing messages from these instances (many people think it will).
@fedilab lol you blocked me from following your official developer account?
@DashEquals I just discovered Fedilab doesn't mind blocking as long as it's people who make them uncomfortable.
@DashEquals I can no longer communicate with their official account. If you think my polite questions are harassment, can you tell me why you consider violent threats and terrorist activity to be defensible? Surely you think those are worse.
@DashEquals so you care not to condemn violence and terrorism.
@DashEquals you want it spread.
Do you expect Chrome of Firefox to block certain websites? No! Why do you expect Fedilab to do that?
It's the very same thing. Browsers are tools to access websites, and as far as I'm concerned, I don't want to have a browser whose developers decide what to see.
Fedilab is just a tool to access Mastodon instances.
You will be able to access Gab with a browser too. Do u want Firefox etc. to block it?
@DanTheFan did Google remove a browser or a social network app from their store? I was pretty clear about that.
Yes. BUT Gab now uses Mastodon as a social network. Again, fedilab is just one app amongst many to access it. I found at least 10 other apps. Not to mention Gnu Social, Diaspora*, Nextcloud....
All of these projects are built to talk to each other. You need to kill each and every one of these to kill gab.
@DanTheFan yes, I'm aware. And? If a social network app gets pulled from a store because it endorses violent terrorist beliefs, should it be allowed if a second developer reproduces it?
As a reminder: @fedilab blocked me after saying they wouldn't block anyone unless a market forced them to. Would you politely ask them on my behalf what market demanded they block me?
Don't be such a twat.
@fedilab has made it perfectly clear. You do not have the neurones to understand or you choose to be a moron. Either way it's your problem not his.
Fork the application, modify it to your heart's content and publish it in whichever marketplace you please, but stop harassing people.
We do not need to hear cretins complain about other cretins. Which is why:
*plonk!* ← man, it's been years! ☺️
@fedilab Online ratings are broken. People only ever give 1 or 5, and never anything rational. Whatever their view on blocking, that doesn't make the app worthy of a one star!
@fedilab Huh, funny, that sounds like adbicating responsibility.
Oh, wait, it is!
Oh, look! She has an opinion. 🙄
Congratulations on getting your entire instance blocked (that's how easy it is) 👍
@fedilab Didn't you already block instances from being used with your app? Why not carry the censorship forward even more and make your app even less useful? You haven't a leg to stand on here.
Yes, I removed this block feature because I didn't receive a reply from Google telling me that the app could be banned.
So, as an app developer I didn't have reasons to keep this block.
@fedilab So it's no there anymore?
@fedilab Which commit removed the block?
I am not on framagit, but you should find it with a search.
@fedilab Yep, found it. I apologize for my earlier attack-ish toot about the issue, but I reserve the right to remain wary about similar anti-user moves in the future.
As far as I don't have a clear message from a market asking me to do so I won't.
You do not have a right to anything. It's someone else's playground, which he kindly shares with others.
If you don't like it, fuck off, give your own time to make something awesome that others can use and convince people to use it.
Harassing #foss developers is beyond retarded. Fucking coward.
@fedilab I didn't want to say it, but heck it, I will!
