There has been a large influx of new Moa users flocking to the (GAB) instance. I get an email everytime someone signs up with links to their twitter and masto accounts so I've been parusing them. I gotta say, most, but not all, of the twitter accounts have, in my non-expert opinion, anti-trans messages. I'm thinking about shutting down Moa because server blocks are a losing game and I don't have time to make improvements to it.

I will note that if you look at the TOS of the instance it's worded very carefully to not disallow anti-trans content.

@foozmeat How about making it so clearly Not Friendly to their thinking they have to drop it. Theme it with pride or make there be a pro-{trans|female|immigrant] message on screen at all times or something like that.

@thenomad The thing about Moa is once you sign up you don't really have to visit the site again. I need to think about this.

@foozmeat do they wrote the TOS to allow for anti-trans content loopholes, it was the entire site’s reason for being.
