Hello my lovely :mastoart:•ARTists!

Today I preemptively blocked the two Gab domains I know about (.com and .ai) ahead of their plans to switch over to Mastodon at the beginning of July.

Hopefully this will mean we won't see even a speck of them when they join the :fediverse: Fediverse. :bowie_stardust: I'll continue to block future Gab domains as I become aware of them.

Keep being awesome, all! :make_like_edmonia:

@SeventhMagpie Gab is a social media site well known for allowing (and even encouraging) alt-right folks and nazi-sympathizers. A few of their users have gone on to commit horrible acts of violence based on the beliefs stoked on that site.

If I could block them from the entire Fediverse I would, but I'll do my best at the instance-level, at least. :bear_hugs:

@Curator Ugh. Don't want such people here, there's enough violence in the outside world as it is. Thank you for your hard work at guarding this place! :)

@Curator Thank you! I'm glad .Art isn't making any room for pro-fascist platforms like Gab.

@Curator That's a great level of proactivity. Needed, in this case, but awesome work 💙 thank you for taking good care of this place~
