Our reaction to Gab joining the fediverse:

- Blocked Gab domains

- Added Community Guidelines pixelfed.social/site/kb/commun

- Added user level domain blocks

- Added CW to comments

Fascists and Nazis can h*ck right off and are NOT welcome on our platform. #pixelfed


@pixelfed I don't agree with this decision as I prefer to allow users to have ultimate power in what they filter out.

But I also understand the need for a good default experience. The best solution I see is maybe having default instance blocks but allowing users to unblock them.

Either way, pixelfed is still awesome overall and agree with everything else you do so I will continue to support 😊

@geotechland perhaps you may prefer to think about it as an example. e.g. "for example, this is how you configure COSTAR to reject gab domains” 😇
