Fun fact about the license under which the Mastodon source code is published (AGPL) is that it requires any modifications to it to be published.
No secret sauce, no proprietary features possible. Which is why commercial companies hate this license.
Want to paywall "pro" features? You can, but anyone can take your code and run it on a different server for free.
Anyway, that's quite an interesting financial choice for Gab, a for-profit entity that sells "pro" features

If she sinks and drowns then she be a modest woman.
If she floats or fights back then she be a male fetishist performing a bad rendition of a woman in the likes of a sex doll and a danger to children.

Look, *I get it.* This shit is capital-I Important.
But please, try to remember, not everyone has the energy to get blasted in the face with this shit every time they look at their home feed, even though some of us are *desperately* looking for ways to help without destroying our own endurance in this fucking marathon of a fight for survival.

I don't want to post screenshots but some comments I've seen today lead me to believe not everyone understands how exactly the stuff between Gab, Mastodon, and Fedilab ties together.
The Gab event is remarkable as a threat to Mastodon apps in app stores, because there's a precedent of Gab's own apps being banned.
For end-users, it's nothing special. Servers more toxic than Gab have been dealt with on the fediverse and your nazi-free server will remain nazi-free.

Toxic masculinity, long Show more
One of my former coworkers was hard into performative masculinity.
Which is annoying, but what was hilarious was how incredibly BAD he was at it
I come in with my floral ties, and colorful socks, and gushy lovey doveiness, and just outdo him at every single “masculine” thing he had forced himself to care about
And I’m like dude you know why you’re so bad at this? Because you HATE it. You just want to be this ultra manly man because that’s what an internet forum told you to do
The only reason I’m better than you at cleaning a carburetor, or welding, or repairing a chainsaw is because I LOVE to do all these things
Your toxic masculinity is getting IN THE WAY of you learning how to do these things, because you think it’s supposed to be in your blood or balls or whatever
❤️You can’t learn anything if your starting point is hate❤️
