I see the #Gab federation as absolute win.
Predicting the future:
- Gab finally switches to their Mastodon fork
- some Gab users switch to their own hosting, as Gab source code must be open since Mastodon is on a strong copyleft license (AGPL-3.0), so they have Pro features for free/much cheaper
- dies, as their financing doesn't work anymore, but the source code is again forked by someone and it's a good contribution to fediverse, some improvements even get commited back to Mastodon

they're taking away's censorship on the federated feed, which has been a problem for many for a long time. I didn't expect that situation to last. If it wasn't Gab, it would have been somebody else.
Gab tweets indicated they plan to make money off hosting Mastodon-Gab servers.

"They're taking away's censorship on the federated feed"

Wanna explain what you think you mean by that?

they're joining Purism's hands-off approach. the one you said on May 7 that you disagreed with.

This is not an answer

you will probably wonder one day why everyone left old Mastodon for new Mastodon. I will answer the question then.

What I'm getting is that you have not the faintest clue what "federated feed" means 😂

before Gab, 3 nstances had 1 million of the users and a handfui of cliquish leftist nerds controlled what they saw in the federated feed.
Gab's got 1 million of their own users on day 1.
the situation today is a lot like IRCnet vs Efnet in the 90s. your fiefdom is soon to shrink.

You absolutely don't get how federation works do you? Imagine thinking the federated feed is a physical thing controlled by some entity and not just a view of all posts known by whatever instance you're on lmao
