@ij Oh yes. Facebook and Twitter are enemies of free speech. Unfortunately, many Fediverse instances go this way.
Abraham has persuaded the Creator to not destroy a town if it is inhabited by at least ten righteous persons (Genesis 18:20-32). Many Fediverse instances block the entire Gab, while absolutely not all of its users are misanthropes (yes, some are, but most are not).
All friendly creatures are welcome. Be excellent to each other, live humanism, no nazis, no hate speech. Not only for nerds, but the domain is somewhat cool. ;) No bots in general! (only with prior permission) - Registration temporarily closed/approval required, contact me if you want an invite!
