🇬🇧 We no longer federate with counter.social.

This means it is now impossible to see statuses, to follow and to interact in any way with people on this instance.

counter.social blocks whole countries they considerate hostile and we believe this is a huge error. This is pure racism, tainted with hate and we don't want to promote this behavior.

counter.social is the only blocked instance on xyz. While we want to be as open as possible to all opinions, we don't want to be open to fascists.

@status so because they block the wrong outgroup...your group is going to block them.

@status @jeffcliff
why is it hypocricy?

It's simple. I don't want nationalists. What is hypocracy about that?

@paulfree14 @status Then don't claim that it's about who they block. It's much more consistent to not care about who they block, and just block them because they are in your outgroup.

talk, counter.social 

@status @jeffcliff
Are you suggesting that I should change the reasons of my decision to want them blocked?
Why shouldn't I claim the reason for my desicion, but adopt to your suggestions?

Am I just confused or are you tryn to be manipulative.
If you don't umderstand my reasons ask.
If you don't understand my arguments describing the reasons ask.

If you want to chat about rethoric and biases insteat, we can also do that. 😜

@paulfree14 @status you do whatever you want. But if you are going to use both reasons, that is hypocritical. If you choose the latter reason, it is not hypocritical. It's not really a bias thing.

talk, counter.social 

@status @jeffcliff
will you explain why one reason is hypocritical and the other isn't?

talk, counter.social 

@paulfree14 @status the other reason is you block group is due to some property of that you do not presumably necessarily exhibit. But if you block because they block , you're blocking them because of blocking. Your reason of your blocking is something in that case you *do* necessarily exhibit.
