Poor freedom of speech. Its meaning has taken such a drubbing in the last few years.
I mean, originally, it was just "the government can't tell you what you can and can't say".
Then someone decided it meant "what you say should never have any consequences".
Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can deny you a soapbox".
Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can refuse to listen to you."
Now apparently it means "every program that could possibly access my soapbox MUST do so."
Quiet voice-over: Words aren't just words

V/O: Words have meaning
[cut to the word IS]
V/O: Words have power

V/O: and *they* know how to use it

then beneath: MOVIE IS SUMMER 2020]
CTA ATTENTION ALL FEDIVERSE ADMINS:
On July 4th Gab is coming on to the Fediverse by switching over to Mastodon on their servers.
This means that you can shut the door on them today by preemptively have them fully suspended from your instances. So your users do not have risk getting harassed by any of their users, and they from the start be blocked off from major portions of the Fediverse.
Thank you for your consideration and
ONE WEEK IN NAME ONLY, FOR IT IS NEITHER. https://botsin.space/media/z35ptF5S6hcvoFsfz3U

Fedilab, Nazi enabling
It's time to stop using Fedilab folks. The dev of that app just announced that he will not be blocking Gab. This is despite overwhelming support for the block from users and devs in a poll that hasn't even completed yet.
I attempted to have a conversation with him yesterday because he gave the appearance of good faith, but he's made it clear that he's fine with Nazis and White Supremacists as long as it doesn't affect him. Receipts will be attached over several toots.

Just a crybaby, don't mind me.
