> punishing users of a client for the dev not bending over for you censorship-happy fucks

god you're pathetic

tbh if I didn't absolutely hate java I would probably take this as an incentive to add an “act as client x for request to this instance” feature to fedilab

@lis Still don't understand why the fuck an application should block something.
It's just a tool, let the user do whatever they want

@Ytrezar
@lis
I agree its pathetic behavior. Also, if it weren't for the free speech this admin is flaming, he wouldn't be able to flame it.

Its a devs choice to block or not block something. Just as much as its a users choice to use that software or something else.

The shame here is by accusing the devs who give choice to their users of promoting hate speech, they've become like their enemy. They've created hate speech pointed at devs who offer choice. They've shamed themselves by becoming like their enemy.

@lis i also feel like this is going too far

i really don't think software projects should be policing their users

of course i VERY LOUDLY disagree with hate speech, but this isn't the way to solve it

@lis
> can't exert will over developers so try to bully software repositories instead
> software repository has a pro-user stance
> take tantrum out on the users instead

People acting like this is why we can't have nice things.
@izaya @lis i am not generally using the word "retarded" about others than myself, but blocking an app for not blocking a certain website is certified retardation™️

fedi meta drama, user freedom 

@lis I thought block-happy admins couldn't make any more braindead decisions, but here we are.
@lis blocking Firefox from my website because it doesn't block gab
@ec_ho
Is there a way to automatically block Firefox users?
*posts this comment seven times*
@lis
@ec_ho @lis Blocking everyone from my website because computers don't block Gab :blobfoxgoogly:
@ec_ho @lis blocking HDMI because it can be used to make a display show gab

@lucy @ec_ho gouging out everyone's eyes because they can be used to view gab

@lis @lucy removing everyone's ears because they can be used to listen to gab
@lis lol Fedilab can just change the user agent to bypass this. It's not rocket science.
@lis
They're an idiot too, Fedilab doesn't use a custom user agent anymore for that reason.
@lis It's made of elemental stupidity, but at least it's easy enough to fix with user-agent switching.

@lis@niu.moe what would stop people from setting the user agent to "Fuck the Police" and just continue on? how far is this gonna go smh

@lis i thought admins and users are free to act how they want.

or is it about pedaling hate speech?

@kat
Just because they can act however they want doesn't mean their decisions can't and won't be criticized.
@lis

@alexa @lis criticizing someone for not siding with Nazis, how fair and balanced

@alexa @lis you are defending actions of the creator of fedilab, who implicitly supports Nazis.

@kat @lis by that logic he also implicitly support those who are strongly anti-Nazi.

@alexa @lis by giving Nazis space? by backpedaling on the decision to block a Nazi silo?

@kat @lis he hasn't blocked any anti-Nazi instance and he hadn't blocked any pro-Nazi instance. He's neutral.

@alexa @lis "he's neutral" yet they circumvent the blocks coming from anti-nazi instances for some reason

@kat @lis he also circumvents any blocks that would be levied from pro-Nazi instances.

@alexa which was not the reason they did it in the first place

@kat he removed the user agent before this happened.

@alexa to combat the exact same thing stemming from a different person

@alexa @lis this isn't neutrality, it's an obvious act of aggression

@kat @lis aggression towards who, exactly? He's neutral here, all features affect all instances equally.

@alexa neutrally taxing everyone doesn't solve inequality. neither does explicitly crossing picket lines.

@kat I know let's make software that dominates and controls what the users are able to do with it. Oh wait that would operate an awful lot like proprietary software...
@alexa

@terryenglish let me leave the security vulnerability in my app. what do you mean, patching security vulnerabilities is censorship and proprietary software, let the user have the freedom of being hacked by a script kiddie!

@terryenglish patching vulnerabilities is restricting users from being hacked. isn't that proprietary software?

@kat Good Christ what a lazy red herring there. I think I'll just call you a disingenuous twat now. Good night everyone! 💋

@terryenglish fucking stallman said you are wrong, not me

@kat Holy shit she's only 19. Ooh I kinda feel bad now about calling her a twat. You hit the nail on the head though @alexa she was arguing in bad faith. I doubt she had anything definitive from #Stallman anyways.

@lis this makes me want to switch to fedilab so I don't have to deal with admins like this
