Gabbers work w feds. They’ve had campaigns where they’ve reported sex workers to police and the IRS. They’ve reported nonwhite Immigrants to ICE and the NSA. They’ve doxxed activists and abuse victims. This is not just a ‘free speech’ issue. You’re responsible for who you federate with and who you allow on your platform. Minimizing the threat they pose is just you minimizing your complicity in their violence. We’re not fooled.
I am the developper of reel2bits.
It’s a soundcloud-like self-hosted app, which goal is to be kiss and easy to use. And I am currently trying to implement ActivityPub support.
I would really love to have some more contributors than just myself to work better on it. (python3, flask, celery)
A matrix room have been created for that: reel2bits:otter.sh. And I have at least this week and full next one free to help anyone getting on the codebase.
A new day, a new post :P
