hatespeech-friendly clients, blocking, x0r.be
Given the stance that Fedilab is taking, I will be blocking that client from being able to access x0r.be in the future. If you're using that client, now is the time to switch to a multitude of capable ones.
There should be a cost for Fedilab for enabling hate speech.
Exactly why I removed the custom user agent since a while 🙄
Its because people want to pressure you into joining their ideological cause because their cause doesn't inspire real support otherwise. If they were so kind and noble they wouldn't have to resort to shit like this, people would flock to them for moral guidance on their own. You build a valuable tool and that means they need to capture you or they can't push people around as easily. Don't be bullied into anything.

When you realize that almost all of them have been sanctioned on Twitter for the exact same behavior.
They couldn't follow the rules, so they went to a place where they made the rules. But nobody would come to their place and be bound to the rules, so they attempt to gain leverage by threatening to "take away" the only thing they can: Themselves.
