Multiple users of the main platform have alts registered here, specifically because of the domain blocks.
@GigaByte4711 Ah okay. But I just don't see how their rules conflict with your moderation principles (unless those principles are simply "block Gab Social instances").
For example, what if I set up a Gab social instance on something like gab.theres.life. I would certainly moderate it strictly like I do theres.life (just read our rules theres.life/about/more for more info about that), but would you be obligated to block it?
If you allowed users of the primary platform to set up linked alts and re-post content from the main platform, yes.
