I Like The Gab Social Website But They Have Some Glitches To Work Out Yet....

Sometimes you can’t get on and other times your notifications aren’t showing. But I do like the format and the rules, they won’t put up with the crap that Twitter has become.

Hopefully they stay true to themselves. I read the me me (alternative to facebook) has caved and will now censor. The CEO of Parlor is in hiding as he and his family have been getting death threats.

[@423488,curiosi] The site creator is Christian and he says he won’t let it turn into a Twitter or FB and he has been adding more servers. I think he’s not finished yet. They doubled the amount of users they had for the last two years signing up in just 2 days so of course they are going to have some problems until they get all the servers installed and everything worked out. And he has a pro-subscription that helps pay all the expenses for the site, they were at 70% for the month and now 100% funded for no telling how long. It’s expensive to get pro though so I won’t sign up for that. They have some cool groups and if you are a Pro member you can create your own group and moderate it.

Hmm can you post stories, etc. there?
what is Gab?

[@860047,BeatMySelf2Pain4Perfection] A social website that a conservative Christian man has created about 2 years ago. It’s kind of fun but they need to work out the wrinkles that growth has caused. I can’t get on right now, maybe they are working on it. The owner/developer is good about communicating with people about the site.
[@16806,cherokeepatti] somewhat like here without the Lefties Barking?

[@860047,BeatMySelf2Pain4Perfection] There are a few that are trying themselves but not many. We can block them if they start that crap.
Wow umm have you researched them at all?
I personally don't care but the site sounds ...risky.

Gab is an American alt-tech social networking service known for its far-right userbase.[4][5][6][7] Widely described as a haven for extremists including neo-Nazis, white supremacists, white nationalists, and the alt-right, it has attracted users and groups who have been banned from other social media and users seeking alternatives to mainstream social media.

In February 2019, Gab launched Dissenter, a browser extension and website that allows Gab users to make comments on content hosted on any website via an overlay visible only to those logged into Dissenter or using the extension. This allows commentary that bypasses individual site moderation practices.[33][34] In April 2019, Dissenter was removed from the Firefox Add-ons website and the Chrome Web Store for violation of their policies.[35] Gab also maintains an email service and a Dissenter web browser.[36][37] In July 2019, Gab switched its software infrastructure to a Mastodon fork, a free and open-source social network platform. Mastodon released a statement in protest, denouncing Gab as trying to "monetize and platform racist content while hiding behind the banner of free speech."[38]

[@935348,NightsWatch] And I call Bull shit
[@16806,cherokeepatti] 🤷‍♂️ like I said I dont know and have no feelings as to what sites you use.

I just went to check it out as a possible alternative to here.
And the sites that popped up had this type of info .
Do you have a web address I could use ?
Maybe I'm not getting the same site, I used "The Gab Social Website" for my search

[@935348,NightsWatch] It’s not connecting right now, maybe they are doing maintenance
