@fedilab You might be right with blocking G*b not being 100% effective.
But I think that Fedilab being Free Software, giving someone else the possibility to just remove the block, makes it even more important for you to block that site. Because that makes it a clear statement of speaking out against a company trying to get money out of enabling fucking Nazis!
If you do not want to make that statement, I have to accept that. But that is a statement by itself as well.
@fedilab Also remember: G*b is a commercial company trying to gain money by taking over Fediverse infra. Even if folks evade the G*b block by switching to other instances, it hurts a company trying to gain money out of hate.
"Fedilab being Free Software, giving someone else the possibility to just remove the block, makes it even more important for you to block that site."
ngl i never ever thought of this way before. this is a huge eye opener for me - i've always thought of the negative side ("but then some dickhead will make my software do something stupid") but not the additional impact it gives to decisions at my point ("i can make them go out of the way to MAKE it do something stupid").
@carcinopithecus You're welcome. I think this is an important point to make against all these "but free speach/ censorship" arguments.
