Despite being free software, Mastodon as a project takes a hardline stance against nazis
The covenant has been added approx. one month ago so that for the first time in Mastodon's history, our project could make "no nazis" a part of our branding.
@gargron I.e. put the general principle before the specific examples. To me the primary thing that is important is protecting people from abuse, but then it needs to be made clear that speech that attacks or marginalises whole groups of people will not be allowed because it is incompatible with that idea, and with the rights of people in those groups to express themselves online.
