OK. Some people keep rating the app one star because I don't block an instance.

Unfortunately, their lack of comprehension concerning the Fediverse (manipulated by some propaganda) make they think that the app is not safe to use.

You have every tools with the app to avoid interacting with people you don't want to see.

@fedilab can you elaborate on the propaganda in the instance you won't block? Was it, for example, tied to an extremist terrorist attack?

@fedilab you were just talking about propaganda to defend your decision a moment ago, so why don't we talk about the instance you're supporting?

The #synagoguemassacre suspect was radicalized there for example.

I don't support anything. I won't block anything as far as a market doesn't ask me to do so.
It's useless, it doesn't protect from seeing messages from these instances (many people think it will).

@fedilab Your selective silence (can't mention Gab, the #synagogueshooting, the violent and extremist material promoted there) and your selective wording (calling whatever points it out "propaganda") makes it very clear what you support and condemn.

@silvershovel
You are probably mistaken. The synagogue shooting was livestreamed on Facebook, not on Gab.
@fedilab

@fuxoft @fedilab Citation needed. You appear to be misinformed unfortunately regarding the Gab #synagogueshooting terrorist, who never managed to live stream anything.

Gab CEO Andrew Torba endorses and echoes the speech of the shooter in many respects. Perhaps you were not aware of this?

@fuxoft @fedilab You're confusing a mosque shooting for a synagogue shooting.

If Mark Zuckerberg/Facebook encouraged hatred of Muslims the way Andrew Torba/Gab encouraged hatred of Jews, maybe you'd have a point.
