It's Christmas Time.

Very Christmassy Dorothy Haze by Christopher Ortiz

People are scurrying around to pick up gifts and prepare for next week's festivities. Those who celebrate other holidays are performing whatever rituals are their custom and those of us who work in the shipping industry are left to shriek angry, desperate epithets against the whole affair from far beneath the piles of boxes that threaten to crush us.

However, idiocy does not take off for the holidays, and while most of us are distracted there are still quisling retard grifters who are in profound need of mockery.

Fortunately Dev, Lilith and Scrump have graciously taken time out of their holiday preparations to dump on Andrew Torba and Gab.

This gives a good overview of the situation and adds the interesting tidbit that Gab has lost over half its base, but a good deal of that seems to have been from before the decision to ban all NSFW content.It actually seems to have begun in October, possibly as a result of Gab Trends. It is therefore possible that this whole kerfuffle is an attempt to stem the bleeding by making Gab the go to place for Mennonites and Shakers.

1 Well, Tumblr banned all the NSFW content, and nothing... oh, wait.

2 Looks like there is room in the marketplace for a new social network after all, now that Gab has decided they don't want to be it.

3 No centralized network can do better than GAB. A provider that is not a utility has certain obligations to police content. And in other countries, even if it is a utility, it still does.

4 It probably has something to do with the switch from Gab being centralized to Gab joining the Fediverse, which was not entirely smooth.

5 "which was not entirely smooth."
That's got to win some kind of "understatement of the week" award.
