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.

@fedilab The choice is yours.

If you ever decide to change your mind, my blog post defending Tusky's choice could easily apply to your app too:
