People trust whatever they use, despite in most cases having never done any research on whether it should be trusted.
Thus Gab is full of users talking shit about Parler, Minds, fediverse instances and even big social sites who require a warrant before disclosing user data even as they post to a site that regularly rats out users to the FBI without a warrant.
How am I suppose to troll gab when the site doesn't even work enough to login and post. Just not fun. Its like beating up a bling, deaf, retarded quadriplegic...just not fun.
Perhaps they are intentionally keeping the site from working so ppl can't troll? Seems extreme and not best biz strategy, or is it?
Torba doesn't need gab. no one uses gab. He has twitter and telegram to talk cry about how mean big tech is to him, do his marketing and promote his fundraiser and that is all he needs.
Hey Guys. Not sure you know this but I just tried to get on gab and it seems to be malfunctioning. I noticed you are having a lot of technical problems with the new site. Have you thought about using Mastodon or Pleroma or Misskey? They all work really well. I have used all and never had any problems and they are very inexpensive to run. In fact, I'm on masto host and only pay $5/month with single user. With your traffic it would be the same. We can do fundraiser if needed.
This is the Short Description
