Bitcoin is a tech that is based on pure math and cryptography, it is decentralized and controlled by no one. Bitcoin unlike legacy finance cannot apply any form of discrimination or segregation to anyone.
So what is the real reason behind attempts to block bitcoinhackers from freedom-oriented fediverse? Where the spirit of bitcoin differs from the spirit of fediverse?
Being devided and disconnected we only play right into centralized platforms hands.

@verretor what have caused this attempts to block bitcoinhackers? What exactly they need us to fix?

@tracyspacy They just don't like us. Users and instances can block other users and instances.

@verretor @tracyspacy I noticed that freedom is more valuable for bitcoiners than feeling safely. Free people worry those who want to feel safe. You never know what free person will do.

@verretor @tracyspacy It will make them look free, so they would lose their friends.

@tadeusz @verretor what can we do to make people feel safely on this instance?

@tracyspacy @verretor I think that open discussion requires participants to be open to challenge their views. Mabey the progress is not becouse people feel safe. (feeling safe != being safe)
I think that "code of conflict" that was in Linux made it so solid and well written, that now this is the system on almost all supercomputers, routers and mission-critical devices. We don't need to feel safe, we need freedom.

@tadeusz @tracyspacy This is how it often happens when I do pull requests. The best projects are the ones where pull requests don't get merged too easily.

@verretor @tracyspacy I wish they would just leave it up to the users to block domains and people.

@verretor @tracyspacy Let them be I guess. Just a pity that ones like mastodon.social are so popular

@jk3r @tracyspacy mastodon.social is still not TOO bad. It didn't block bitcoinhackers.

@jk3r @tracyspacy No. They don't let people like us live on their instance but they don't care otherwise.

@jk3r @tracyspacy Yeah. Turns out Gab is a lot worse than mastodon.social.

@verretor @tracyspacy In terms of blocking other instances? That's surprising hahahaha

@jk3r @verretor sure it is up to any user to decide whom to mute from federal timeline or even from an local instance

@jk3r @verretor @tracyspacy Free market at work.

Meaning people will leave those instances and join more level-headed admins. Which I really like.

It would suck if you've already built up a network, though.

Some people are gonna have a server in their room screaming at the wind and banning everyone in sight. But everyone needs a good lolcow now and then.

@MilquetoastQT @tracyspacy @verretor Agree, seems fairly trivial to move your account and followers to a new instance.

@jk3r @tracyspacy @verretor Reputation will matter as the fedi grows. Once again, the market at work. The Pareto principle will take hold eventually, as it should.
