with this in mind, should gab choose to attempt to federate with the wider fediverse, our policy will be: "if you federate with gab, we will not federate with you."
we urge every instance on fedi to do the same. gab must be isolated if we are to keep this platform safe, and individual action is not enough.

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.
An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.
We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
