I don’t think you understand. This wasn’t a case of different opinions. This was an instance where the admins were aggressively promoting racism, vaccine misinformation and fearmongering, and staunch opposition to science. They had essentially openly bragged that, when faced with evidence, they would strongly prefer the opposite.

I really don’t want to dig anymore, but it’s bad.

On top of that, their idea of federation does not include the perspective of outsiders.


I recommended this on Matrix. It really was necessary. The site admins are in favor of vaccine misinformation and extreme fearmongering to the point of hostility towards science in general.


Google doesn’t measure what an app deserves in fighting spam. They measure things like a sudden, dramatic change in frequency of one star reviews.


So, Google has done this before. They do omething similar with dislikes on YouTube. They aren’t doing it manually. When a bunch of pissed off assholes brigade an app and flip a bunch of five star reviews to one star reviews based on one policy change, that’s generally not something that Google want to have too trong of an effect. If negative reviews continue steadily over time, they’ll pile up.


I don’t think that’s very likely – screens will still be significant power sinks.


I’m still on Nova. I haven’t used any new features in a while, but I need a similar layout for my desktop, drawer, etc., and really appreciate the swipe-up-on-an-app-icon feature. I also need to be able to disable all Google-related features, of course.

Anybody else have a complete, fast launcher similar enough to Nova in these ways?
