"The Brave browser knows where users spend their time, making it the perfect tool to calculate and reward publishers with BATs."
So wait, Brave respects your privacy, but also knows where you spend your time?
Brave is owned by Peter Thiel, the same guy who owns Palantir:
"Peter Thiel’s data-mining company is using War on Terror tools to track American citizens. The scary thing? Palantir is desperate for new customers."

I strongly encourage looking at the pictures; it's important for people to know what this situation looks like.

Warning: Gab and their bottom-of-the-barrel quality users are coming to the Fediverse.

Gab is a website by nazis who spent millions of cash (scammed from fellow nazis under the pretense of building BLOCKCHAIN TWITTER, a promise they went back on immediately after they got money) and years of time to build a php piece of shit that is overran with porno spambots and yet has fewer users than large fediverse instances.
They‘ve now realized they‘re too incompetent to make software and are spending months to get software written by jews, gay trans furries and antifascists to run.
So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)
This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.
