@person From what I understand, he has been harassed after not putting a Gab block in his client, unlike Tusky who blocked their domains and launches rickrolls instead of authenticating (which I think is not something a client should do, it should just implement the API, and apparently he had the same view).
Recent events (parler etc) seem to have somehow stirred that whole thing up again and he didn't feel up to receiving death threats again.
I'm not sure on the details, corrections welcome
@Matter I'm afriad we humans do an ignorant mob beautifully well and cause horrendous damage in being so inclined. As Agent K said... "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it."
