being targetted by Nazis, threats, ruminating over the events of the last 24h, personal 

Sigh. So, thanks to this whole incident on F-Droid, I'm now officially a target of white supremacists. This account in particular.

I made the mistake of making too much sense by asking "How does adding information actually censor other information?"

It was apparently enough for someone to come in and drop the pretense of using logic & reason in order to perform a full frontal assault on me and my character.

Even if their accusation of me being a "known harasser" is a lie, it's still a sign that at least this person sees me as a serious threat to their ideology.

And this is how it starts. They spread a trumped up lie (see: Russia hacked our elections) until it drowns out the truth.

I'm gonna need help now more than ever if we're gonna win this. I'm gonna need every one of you to start speaking up and getting into the faces of these bigots whenever you're able.

Now that the spotlight is on me, the only way to protect me is to blind them with as many spotlights of our own that we can.

Specifically in this case, it means jumping into the replies of these people as they attack me or anyone else. It means being vigilant and calling on others to help shut them down before they shut us down.

Civility is over. It was honestly over long before this attack on me, but my solo work is no longer enough. I got pushed off Twitter. I don't wanna get pushed off the Fediverse too.

Putting me in a spotlight has turned me into a sort of leader, whether I like it or not. I want to fight on the front lines, though, even knowing that my fate is not likely a favorable one.

I'll keep pushing from all the available angles to combat this threat on me, my home, and all those that share it with me. I only hope that y'all join me and save me from the fate that is statistically expected of me.

@KitsuneAlicia they've already won - they got the moderators to fall for the "both sides are at fault" thing

re: being targetted by Nazis, threats, ruminating over the events of the last 24h, personal 

@ben Won't stop me from continuing to fight to protect my home from the Nazi invasion. I'll tackle it on all fronts that I can.

@KitsuneAlicia I'm not going to stop, but it's wearing on me

re: being targetted by Nazis, threats, ruminating over the events of the last 24h, personal 

@ben I know. It's wearing on me too, but I don't really have a choice. I'd rather die before seceding more ground to these invaders.

That's why I need others to help take some of the burden off my shoulders. I don't want to die. I'd rather be here with y'all to enjoy this community we built together.

@KitsuneAlicia I'll take a 0.00001% chance of success over guaranteed failure

but it's already 3 PM and I've gotten basically nothing out of my list of things I wanted to do today done

re: being targetted by Nazis, threats, ruminating over the events of the last 24h, personal 

@ben No worries. There's not a whole lot that can be done rn anyway. Take care.

@ben @KitsuneAlicia The hell? What instance are they on?

re: being targetted by Nazis, threats, ruminating over the events of the last 24h, personal 

@ben @Lexi Also this one, which is what prompted me to make that one:
forum.f-droid.org/t/tusky-is-n

Check the last post. The one who created this thread is on Mastodon (and on Gab) and a massive transphobe.

@KitsuneAlicia @ben Guhhhh...

re: being targetted by Nazis, threats, ruminating over the events of the last 24h, personal 

@Lexi @KitsuneAlicia my favorite part of today was the "ha ha I bet you won't even take into account the opinions of switter because you're against nazis"

which is several levels deep in the irony-blindness cave

re: being targetted by Nazis, threats, ruminating over the events of the last 24h, personal 

@ben @Lexi My favorite was when they said Gab has far more users than any other instance, failing to take into account *active* users and how the entirety of the Fediverse still outweighs them in sheer volume regardless.
