Hey, Fediverse Peanut Gallery.
The fact that Tom doesn't want to introduce your mess into his code doesn't make him a bad person, nor does it make Fedilab a bad client, you prescriptive, prohibitive, entitled, toxic rubbish.
There is time and place for blocking shit. And "servers blocking clients for clients not blocking servers you don't like" is not that. This is silly and destructive and is getting worse over time. It is not contributing anything of value into the conversation. Fuck that noise.
Let us, admins deal with messy and ever-changing politics, and let programmers write the tools however the fuck they want to. Separation of labor, yo.
Don't fucking @ at me.
P.S: Conversely, if you're giving shit to #Tusky
developer for their decision to go along with the blocking, fuck off, you're no better, not a bit. Everything above applies to you as well. Google "respect for someone else's decisions", you fool.
It's time to move on.
