Sad to see developer (amongst other things) tom79 throw in the towel, but more than understandable.

Another victim of the Gab hysteria... This really highlights one of the things that is so terribly wrong with the fediverse.

@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 What is wrong with people these days.
