@funkwhale

Hope this blocking thing end soon, it's getting boring 😪 Timeline filled with shit and end result well we all know.

@inditoot @funkwhale Use your filters then and screen out any post with the word "gab."

It's important for the major apps and sites of the fedi to make their stance clear so people know who is safe and who isn't.

Believe it or not, people's safety is more important than you feeling bored.

Funkwhale blocked me for saying I am getting bored 😂😂😂

@kragen @funkwhale "free speech" in this context isn't actually about free speech but a dishonest attempt to push nazism. It's "free speech advocacy" done by the kind of people who would violently silence others if they only had the power to do so.

@darth_tiktaalik @funkwhale I am skeptical of this claim, because it does not seem feasible to prohibit free-speech advocacy only in cases where the advocate's motivations are dishonest; it seems like the only way to distinguish real anti-Nazis, such as sincere free-speech activists, from fake anti-Nazis who are only in favor of free speech when it serves their Nazi ends, would be to give them the power to silence others with no repercussions and see whether they use it or not.

@darth_tiktaalik @funkwhale So I think the more likely way this policy will play out in practice is that people like you (assuming you're sincere in your opposition to violently silencing others) will get banned for advocating free speech sincerely, since anyone outside of your head can't tell what you would do if you had the power to silence others. But maybe I'm wrong; I'm looking forward to clarification from the original speaker!
