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 another way to put the second sentence might be 'Specifically we take a definite stand against hate speech directed against people on the basis of their race, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs, as this is incompatible with the fundamental rights of people targeted in this way.'
@gargron you could add '... including their rights to express themselves freely online'. I.e. spell out the point that to claim free speech rights for hate speech is contradictory and hypocritical.
