Think further. Gab isn't the only instance that tolerates content that shouldn't be tolerated. Hate speech isn't only done by users of Gab. This is a bigger question. A very basic question about moderation on the fediverse. App devs can't moderate the whole fediverse, neither should they. Instead, instance admins can and already do moderation even better. They have the tools, devs don't.
All in all I consider @fedilab s decision as fully reasonable.

Welp #tusky merged the instance rickroll PR, anyone know of other open source android clients that actually respects users?
KDE has adopted non-proprietary and decentralized instant messaging services and is now running its own community-managed instance of Matrix
KDE is now officially using Matrix for collaboration within KDE! Matrix is an open protocol and network for decentralised communication (which means you can follow and comment from a different instance of Matrix where you already have a presence), backed by an open standard and open source reference implementations for servers, clients, client SDKs, bridges, bots and more. It provides all the features you’d expect from a modern chat system: infinite scrollback, file transfer, typing notifications, read receipts, presence, search, push notifications, stickers, VoIP calling and conferencing, etc. It even provides end-to-end encryption (based on Signal’s double ratchet algorithm) for when you want some privacy. https://squeet.me/objects/962c3e10e38e7cf4ed8190091da003199908b4b6
Sure, each one's developers may prefer that they get used instead of the other, but being federated systems. But there's no reason not to have transports or gateways between them. They're documented protocols, both communities are committed to openness so we won't have any of the nonsense where AOL went around IP-blocking any well-used transport. A user gained by either is a user both can talk to, at least potentially.
Matrix 1.0, Synapse 1.0 and the Matrix Foundation
We are very excited to announce the first fully stable release of the #Matrix protocol and specification across all APIs - as well as the Synapse 1.0 reference implementation which implements the full Matrix 1.0 API surface.
This means that after just over 5 years since the initial work on Matrix began, we are proud to have finally exited beta!! This is the conclusion of the work which we announced at FOSDEM 2019 when we cut the first stable release of the Server-Server API and began the Synapse 0.99 release series in anticipation of releasing a 1.0.
a non-violent, non-destructive crime you can do
✅ find a really old TV with a UHF dial
✅ attach antenna
✅ browse around UHF channels 80-84
✅ stop when you hear one-to-three-second snippets of people talking
✅ tell a buddy what you heard
Congratulations! You just intercepted and disclosed an electronic communication, 18 U.S. Code § 2511, a felony w/5 years max imprisonment.
Can we please stop proclaiming the end of the fediverse! Just because someone with ideas you don't agree with is joining the fediverse does not mean that the fediverse is over. It means its getting popular! If there's any danger to the fediverse, its the threat of censorship by oligarchs. Who want to silence the opinions they disagree with.
We have a winner! Plasma 5.16's next wallpaper will be Ice Cold by Santiago Cézar.
Santiago will be receiving a @slimbook One compact computer as soon as we get Plasma 5.16 on it.
