"I'm running Gab's software, but I'm rebranding it so it no longer has anything to do with Gab"
you could, uh, save yourself a bunch of work and just use Mastodon
@noelle does their fork even actually change anything
@00dani It changes the front page (what you see when you're not logged in) a bunch, and reworks some of the routing. And, crucially, it changes the useragent their servers use to connect to other fediverse servers, so you can just block them in your nginx config.
@noelle I felt the same when folks were adopting pleroma in its early, more overly racist days.
@hache Fair, although at least Pleroma is its own code base. Gab is literally just Mastodon with a swastika sticker on it.
@noelle that's true
