Raison d'être

A French phrase (word?) that has been directly appropriated by the English language, the meaning of which is apparently unknown to Gab.

Nicked from Vee's channel, the original post having apparently been deleted.

1 Gab has many flaws, the chief of which may be its creator, Torba, who is just a grifter of Boomers. . Still, it is the only "social media" I occasionally partake of; I've never been a part of the piranha-bolshivism that is Twitter.  . In early 2017, Torba had a spasm that "anime=hentai=child porn"; he only backed down a little and he never apologized.  As one who mostly talked about writing fiction and anime, I complained.  Loudly and often.  . I suspect Gab has a few years left.  The 2020 election cycle will de-fib it temporarily but it will languish and die by 2022. . Shame, really. Good concept; shoddy implementation.

2 What have I done.
Well, at least he still blogs.

3 Torba likes to talk the good talk when he wants donations, but he's extremely opaque in his dealings when he runs the site with the iron fist. During the great anime purge, people were disappearing like in 1938 USSR, and he's never said a word to acknowledge that.
