Strikes me as funny that the only people rallying to @fdroidorg 's defence on their shitty handling of apps that are designed primarily for access to hate speech communities are full-on nasty offensive racist, homophobic bigots as though we should be comfortable with it.
It's a really good precedent set to regular users like myself that just want to download software from somewhere *responsible* and *user focused* that's not Google. Love to be constantly harassed for bringing it up

@fdroidorg I would rather use closed-source software from a closed app store than from a place ran by people that think software is more important than people's safety and doing the bare minimum in their power to reduce the spread of evil spaces online. The fuck is wrong with you F-Droid you absolute nerds

@Shrigglepuss I just wish we could get a fork going. Or maybe Pinephone will get successful enough that we can leave behind the pile of shit that Android has become.

re: F-Droid / meta 

@Shrigglepuss @fdroidorg you know how I know they're doing this on purpose?

they posted a public "apology" in which they refused to fix the problem they were supposedly apologizing for.

re: F-Droid / meta 

@ben @fdroidorg For sure, it's insulting that they thought a nonapology would change anything at all

re: F-Droid / meta 

@ben @Shrigglepuss @fdroidorg It's even worse than that, though. They gave a non-apology for how they handled the influx of racists on the forums, but never once apologized for how they handled the app decisions themselves.

"We're sorry you got bombed by bigots, but we've made our decision and apps that have coded bigotry promotion are allowed."
^ This sums up the entire "apology".

@Shrigglepuss Ditto.

FYI @fdroidorg I just deleted the FDroid app from my phone and until you take a stance against hate speech I'll be recommending others to do the same.
