FEDIBLOCK NOW 

Trump's new social network is preparing to launch... look familiar?

newsweek.com/trump-announces-t

I advise you get on blocking the below domains.

You knew it was going to happen.

Boost it far and wide!

mobile.tmediatech.io/auth/sign

truthsocial.com/

re: FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson …interesting how /about/more is just the Mastodon 404

that’s also an AGPL violation I suspect (or does that only apply to users?)

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@TheGibson

I'm confused. Are these instances and if not, why would I need to block them from here, and how would I do that? Thanks.

RE: FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson@hackers.town Hello there Server: Mastodon header...

RE: FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@alexandra @thegibson Lol I anticipated this. They deleted the the about page but didn’t change the not found :blobcatlul: I suppose @Gargron can theoretically sue him for AGPL violation

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson worth noting here that blocking the top level domain blocks everything under it, so blocking tmediatech.io would probably be a better idea than the "mobile" one, as they might well pop up other variants under that in the future.

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@ottaross
its the instance admins/moderators who do it, as a user you normaly dont have to do it if your server has a decent team running it.
@TheGibson

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson We don't know whether it will be federated or not, are we?

re: FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson curiously, rather than using one of the existing white nationalist forks, they seem to have just taken stock mastodon and clumsily removed all the branding

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@TheGibson I thought it had already happened with gettr but apparently I was wrong. Or maybe they’re in permanent launch mode to « keep it fresh » and make headlines because who doesn’t love a good trump headline (not trump at least) 🙄

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson ""We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American president has been silenced. This is unacceptable.""

It's not that rare that Trump identifies an issue correctly, but has the wrong cause and solution.

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson I might be being a bit dense, but is defederating going to Settings -> Moderation -> Federation -> Add domain block and filling out the necssary bits?

And is there an inverse? Like, please accept all posts from a domain and display on federated timeline?

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson Done. Even if it is just on the anticipation of them trying to federate.

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson seems Trump's latest social media tower has already toppled? The domains abruptly stopped resolving for me in the last half hour or so...anybody else see that?

re: FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson if truthsocial tried to federate, would screw it up big time. I suspect they will try hiding all traces of stealing code from public.
Look at their TOS:

re: FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@dudenas @TheGibson I think what you quoted there is d'accord with AGPL. It's true that Mastodon source code is licensed to them (through AGPL), and intellectual property rights apply. It's just that they are required to publish the source code as per AGPL in order to comply with the license requirements.

re: FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@feli @thegibson Thanks, that was a precise note. Let's wait for the published source code ;)

Fediblock now 

@thegibson
@Mayana @talon I'm not sure if you've seen this passing by already.
The first URL does currently not work, but on the comments I saw a screenshot and it looks pretty much like Mastodon... so we should probably assume that it is a mastodon instance...

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@TheGibson How do the bets about their iOS app just being a rebranded version of the Mastodon app look?

(Also funny about how their self-description is appropriating the term "inclusive", not that it comes as a surprise.)

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@TheGibson Is there a way to block it directly as a user? ó.ò
I know how to block users or there instances. But never have done it withou a toot from them. Also does not find any instructions or anything inside the settings.
Would be a sign if 99% of people blocking that instance before it even really existed x3

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@TheGibson
The good thing about the Internet is, I can choose whom to follow amd just not listen to Trump if I don't want to.

In Mastadon, there is no need for an admin to remove that choice from me or it's users.

So why are you lobbying for an instance ban?

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@mxdragon that post is filtered for me 🙃. Can you dm me the domain?

@thegibson@hackers.town just the name sounds like it's SUPPOSED to attract QAnon people, that's so weird and scary

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson I don't see any federation happening in those iPhone screenshots also the first links seem dead.

And even if they're federating on Fedi I'm just sure we have enough imstances to poke fun at them

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@thegibson But I guess you're trying to say that the first link does seem a tad familiar to Mastodon's sign in endpoint?

BS 

@TheGibson "TRUTH Social is America’s “Big Tent” social media platform that encourages an open, free, and honest global conversation without discriminating against political ideology."

This is so full of BS I don't even... 😆

To be clear, that statement I quoted from that site is full of BS...

FEDIBLOCK NOW 

@TheGibson According to mobile.twitter.com/MikaelThale, they also have another test instance running Pleroma.

(And from a screenshot further down that thread, it seems the DNS name of that one is tmg\.freestateranch\.com, though I have not verified everyone is talking about the same thing over there.)
