@freemo Can you tell us how this is related to accessibility please? (I've not followed previous discussions you may refer to, so this is a genuine question)
@accessiblestef Accessibility in what sense? Like, access for disabled people? Im not sure it is. why do you ask?
You used 'a11y' in your thread and I fail to see the link with the r/ discussions you mention.
@accessiblestef Perhaps I misunderstood what that hashtag was used for. I was under the impression it was used to show yoru support of LGBTQ... if its for the disabled, while i do support them, it is not relevant here you are right.
@freemo So much of this is just silly, and I’m sorry you’re having to deal with it. I’m not going to be defederating from instances that have thoughtful moderation policies that do their best to enforce them, I can tell you that. I’ll recommend Qoto too.
Ah, the feeling of old-style internet drama, I’ve kinda missed it! (not that much)
@hypolite I never called him a nazi, in fact in my write up, which you clearly didnt read, i even pointed out he has generally been an LGBTQ ally when it was popular.
I **did** say he caved to a nazi's agenda, which again you clearly didnt read the post which has photo evidence of what I claim.
As for accepting accolades from antisemites, I dont know who you mean, but have you considered I might simply have no idea that someone was an antisemite. I mean for christs sake I specifically moved to Israel to save the lives of the jews (and others) who live here.... im hardly supporting of antisemites.
@hypolite I have 30,000 followers, on average I get one notification per second **constantly**.. if someone says nice things to me do you really expect me to read their entire time line before I say something as simple as "thanks"...
I get your point, and if i knew someone is an antisemite I clearly wont praise them or boost them. But I cant know the history of every single person I exchange a single word with, the time restrictions on me would be enourmous.
@hypolite im not sure how saying "thanks" to an account whom no one on their server can see in the first place puts anyones safety at risk. Care to explain that?
You yourself interacted with them and are clearly federated with them, which means they would defederate from you and your server as well.
If you can see someone you blocked then they arent truly blocked.. you are using software which does not do a "true" blocking, it allows your data to be sent to blocked instances.
This means you are, in fact, federating with this bad instances. By the same harsh judgement you are applying to me, therefore, can be applied to you for even using software that has open federation at all.
@hypolite No i am not actually accusing you of that, i am pointing out that others would if your held to the same standard as me.. personally i dont mind that your software cant defederate when you block people ... its a nonissue for me.
@hypolite I should write a script that looks at everyone you ever replied to and looks throught their history to find if any of them have ever been racist or prejudice and you just missed it... willing to garuntee there is plenty.
You cant even see the absurdity of your strawman...
