The team at Distributed Denial of Secrets released a new leak today, 70GB of Gab posts. Check it out: https://ddosecrets.com/wiki/GabLeaks

I'm not sure I even remember what Gab is. Was that another attempt at cloning Twitter or something?

>Mastodon is completely opposed to Gab’s project and philosophy, which seeks to monetize and platform racist content while hiding behind the banner of free speech. Mastodon remains committed to standing up against hate speech; for example, our new server covenant means we only list servers on joinmastodon.org that are committed to active moderation against racism, sexism and transphobia. The Mastodon community does not approve of their attempt to hijack our infrastructure and has already taken steps to isolate Gab and keep hate speech off the fediverse.
I have to say I really lose a lot of respect for Mastodon developers when I read shit like this. They need to keep their fucking mouths shut and just focus on bringing people together. This kind of partisanship sends a very bad message if their goal is widespread adoption. Either everyone deserves free speech or you're not a free speech champion, you can't have it both ways.

Yeah, far-right Twitter alternative. After Parler shut down a lot of people moved to it.

Can't wait to see the new password table for right-wing sites.

[i]Technically[/i] true, but given Trump's known password habits I'm sure we might see some interesting posts soon. And judging by the poor advice and copetext of the CEO's new post, I'm sure security is not outstanding in that company (but at least it's better than Parler).

Oh please every time these people infiltrate a website it becomes absolute trash, every single time. Free speech does not mean you are obliged to giving these shitheads a place to organize.

I ain't gonna waste my breath speaking up for people who would shut me down if given the chance.
Free speech shoudn't be defended as a superior moral principle but as a tactical tool.

The tactic here is establishing an open community where we can convert normal people to our sides. If you allow everyone to make insular silos that don't connect together then you've failed.
