eugen: I'm not going to work for alt-right enablers any more. I'm going to ban individual racists if they show up on the bad instance

a thousand dipshits in the replies: how dare you. this is censorship. this is like if you disagreed with someone and glued their mouth shut.

I give Eugen the business, but then I remember he has to deal with an infinite number of dipshits calling him a thought-policing bigot for blocking neo-nazis and he handles it as well as anyone

I don't think I'd be able to handle having that many fascists using my software, either

@dankwraith Yeah, all I can do is hope that good people get more use out of it than bad people, and try to make sure that happens, but I don't think I could live with myself if my software enabled something awful.

@dankwraith @BestGirlGrace the only person who can handle fascists on a popular software is jack dorsey, and that's simply because unlike eugen, he doesn't give a shit, so the "handling" part is rendered mute

@BestGirlGrace

oh lol you're not being hyperbolic. there's the glue analogy and everything. good lordt.

@jackdaw_ruiz I felt a little bad for calling this one dude out, but fucking look at him

@BestGirlGrace

i'm sure he respects you for speaking your mind rather than surrendering to the insidious mouth glue of self-censorship.

@jackdaw_ruiz I believe it was Mark Twain who said "censorship is gluing a man's mouth shut because babies can't talk yet"

@BestGirlGrace @jackdaw_ruiz
This is also why Mark Twain died in prison after being convicted of gluing hundreds of babies’ mouths shut

Don't let the name fool you. All the pornography here is legal, and much of it is hand-written. No fascists, no bigots.
