The plot thickens on Paul Engelhard’s ban from the bird site. A bunch of my friends who have access to the head honchos of Twitter approached them about it, not even they could fix it. Apparently this is a German Twitter hate speech issue. Now I have to compose a tweet in German and @ German Twitter...which is my least favorite thing to do. My German isn’t that great anymore. Plus, I have to address German hate speech laws. Sigh.
@Lexialex So the nazi/right users reported him to German Twitter, using the hate speech laws designed to prevent them from prospering AGAINST a voice speaking out against nazis. Fuck's sake, this is exactly the opposite of what's supposed to happen with those laws. Any idea on whether or not they baited him into this to silence him?
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance.
