every time someone posts about using pixelfed I think about dansup's opinions on using the n-word and how he thinks women and PoC are persecuting him because he constantly supported Nazis until enough people said something that he stopped doing it publicly and also he loves targeting his critics with abuse and also stop fucking supporting these assholes for fuck's sake
“Trying to punish those who perpetuate online abuse with “a taste of their own medicine” is a very shortsighted approach that makes me tear my hair out anytime I see it pop up. […] Abuse isn’t solved by more abuse, and your actions can end up harming the original victim as well. One of the big motivating factors behind online abuse is a failure of empathy, and focusing on who is a “deserving” target rather than which behaviors are unacceptable is a good way to continue down a dehumanizing path.”
Woah this is so much bullshit. "Hey, we provide social tools, but we refuse any responsability for what will be done with it. Look, net neutrality!!!"
A social platform that **removes** the possibility to report a message is pure evil. Purism/Librem sounds like any random techdude "free speech extremist", and it’s incredibly shitty.

Really, @purism? You copy a bunch of open-source apps and make it look like they are yours without any mention of the original apps? I think you should delete these apps immediately and publicly apologize. Or at least don't have the audacity to call yourself a "Social Purpose Corporation that does not exploit people and puts doing social good over maximizing profit ", because its obviously not true.
