What you're missing

If you're not on Gab.
The fundamental uselessness of genocide is best exemplified by the fact that the Turks killed 1.5 million Armenians and somehow missed BOTH the Kardashians and the Sarkeesians.

Watch out, the DREAD ILK are arriving! Stickwick is here. I thought I could feel the average IQ jump. In other good news, #RunThemDown is trending here. #YouWontSeeThatOnTwitter
Just to be clear, I'm not banned from Twitter. I just don't see any point in providing free content to a site that not only thought-polices that content, but blocks access to my primary content. And perhaps more importantly, the guys behind Gab are smart, friendly people who aren't SJWs.

And then, there is this:
@Spacebunny
It's 2016 and literally everything is offensive. So what is the most offensive costume you can come up with for this Halloween?

@voxday
Milo in blackface carrying a drowned migrant child.
We're the George and Gracie of Gab, with just a twist of artistic cruelty.

Why can some people get on gab and the rest of us have to get in line? I signed up when I first heard about it, and haven't heard anything from them about actually getting on.

Put myself in queue a while ago. Can't put myself again with the same email, if I request forgotten password with the email, it doesn't find such email, and nothing in my gmail including social media and spam folders. Kind of concerned I have ended up locked out of it.

Remember people, if you still have your Twitter accounts, amp up the activism. Now that you don't need to fear getting shut out of it, since you have an alternative, you can be a lot more aggressive.

Blogger Paul September 23, 2016 8:30 AM  

Gab won't be the replacement for anything as long as it's a private club, unreadable from the outside. The Instapundit moment was serendipitous and completely lost to Torba for just that reason. Had Reynolds decided to jump ship from Twitter to Gab, only Gabbers would have been able to read him.

Blogger Markku September 23, 2016 8:34 AM  

I'm pretty sure it won't be a private club indefinitely. I have no contact with the project, but this is the way I would do such a thing. When I don't yet know how much each of my software and hardware components can handle, I would want to be in full control of the maximum number of users active at any given moment. Finding and fixing the bottlenecks is the hardest aspect of such a project.

Might take a while, guys:

Thank you for registering for Gab! Our mission is to put people first and promote free speech and expression. All are welcome on Gab, and always will be.

Currently Gab is in beta, it may take up to two weeks to receive your invitation due to high demand from around the world.


Be patient.

I've already pointed that out to them. I suspect it is a bandwidth/resources issue for the time being. Easily resolved.

I have no doubt that Instapundit and Dr. Helen will appear on Gab in due course.

Blogger James Dixon September 23, 2016 8:39 AM  

> Gab won't be the replacement for anything as long as it's a private club, unreadable from the outside.

Agreed. They need to allow the option for users to make their posts public so anyone can read them, whether they have a gab account or not.

And apparently I misspoke. I checked my spam trap on my mail service, and there was a message from gab.ai saying that I was confirmed as in the queue. It was automatically spam trapped by dnsbl/bl.spamcop.net. Vox, can you pass that info on to their admins so they can deal with it.

Anonymous Stickwick September 23, 2016 8:46 AM  

It took 2-3 weeks after signing up to get an invitation. I sat on it for a while until Instapundit's suspension made it clear that Twitter is on a precipitous downward slide.

So far, so good. The larger character limit is nice, and I like the up/down vote feature on the posts. But I haven't quite figured out what to do over at Gab without the hordes of midwit atheists tripping over themselves to showcase the narrow confines of their intellects.

@42 No. Gab is still beta.

Blogger Markku September 23, 2016 9:09 AM  

For everybody who might be annoyed at the perceived slowness: Assessing bottlenecks is really hard works. You have numerous components, and if even ONE of them stalls, the entire system stalls. So, they need to do this carefully. If they just hoard everybody in before they are ready for it, then nobody gets service.

I just hope they had a view for checking the status of your email address, whether you are still waiting for processing, or if you have been processed but you have lost the email about it.

I'm been active on Gab for a couple of days. For me, it's legitimately better than Twitter. For one thing, the higher character limit lends itself to freer communication, especially if you're inclined to use words with more than two syllables. For another, it's a more positive culture. It sort of feels more genuine - less like a corporate breakroom and more like a Western saloon, if you will.

Also, Stickwick and other gabbers here, gab #DreadIlk so I can follow you, s'il vous plait.

Also... guns and holster requests are OT... but it is a long standing tradition of derailing posts with firearms questions. There is only so much herding that can be done when it comes to the dread ilk.

What's funnier than a dead baby?

A dead baby in a clown suit

Blogger Harold September 23, 2016 1:27 PM  

The fundamental uselessness of genocide is best exemplified by the fact that the Turks killed 1.5 million Armenians and somehow missed BOTH the Kardashians and the Sarkeesians.

The one comment I'll make to this is that the Carthaginians may disagree. Ask them.

Wanna know something funny about the anchor baby? His dad was the captain of the boat that sank, a people trafficker. He was taking his family who were settled in Turkey to Germany for free dental work on welfare. Even More hilarious? His little body was washed into the rocks so the photographers moved it to the beach for better pictures which were then published all around the world.

Wanna hear something absolutely hysterical? TEN french kids were slaughtered at Nice when the mohammedan assassin Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhle (god curse his name) struck and none of the liberal press dared publish pictures of ANY of them and those that did on the Internet were ordered by the French government to delete them.

What's more pathetic than a dead baby?
An SJW screaming DEAD BABY! as if she expected us to care.
An SJW that can't be bothered to care about dead White babies.
An SJW that would rather be raped and murdered by an immigrant than read a dead baby joke.

I'll queue up an account tomorrow. No intention of connecting my twitter account to it (I have my reasons). Curious how long it will take for Milo and VD to follow my new account.

Blogger The Overgrown Hobbit September 23, 2016 2:28 PM  

Put myself in queue a while ago. Can't put myself again with the same email, if I request forgotten password with the email, it doesn't find such email, and nothing in my gmail including social media and spam folders. Kind of concerned I have ended up locked out of it.

Ditto.

Only for me it was at least a month ago. I hate Twitter with the flaming loathing of a thousand burning suns. The only social media site I despise more is Facebook.

I've been on Twitter less than 2 weeks, and I see people talking about Gab a lot. I think a few will switch as soon as it's viable. People didn't like when that ricky### and instapundit got banned. A lot of people pop up out of nowhere with the "I'm back, was banned for 3 days" -

If I'm seeing that in the few people I'm following, it must be way more widespread than I can imagine.

Since we are seeing a great many people who have signed up, but haven't even gotten an email, compounded byt the lack of contact info at gab, and a few who signed up yesterday or even today and are already on the system, I think we need a list of Ilk and VFM for Gab.ai to sort out

To clairify, this is for people who have signed up, have tested via the register button that their email address is in the system, have tried the "forgot password" button and verified they don't yet have an account, but have not received an email from gab.

Any way to bulk move content from a TWTR account into Gab?
This would be useful in case of a ban and also save the hassle of going through and manually gabbing previous tweets.

I see some slowdowns on Gab notifications right now, so they're definitely hitting some bottlenecks somewhere.

Glad to hear some are getting in quickly. Wonder if it's FIFO, or are they prioritizing based on Twitter presence or some other characteristic?

I guess the only question that must needs be answered is whether those killed were all worse than the K's and S's.

VD,

I'm a bit troubled by your support of yet another centralized, controlled platform. As Jerry Pournelle's publisher, you are surely aware of Pournelle's Iron Law; you yourself have written extensively about entryism; and you often tell the story of creating your own platform after being removed from someone else's.

It seems to me that either gab is explicitly pro-right, in which case it is likely to be useless for spreading our message to new audiences (preaching to the choir), or it will become implicitly pro-left, and everyone will need to flee again sooner or later.

Am I missing something, or wouldn't we all be better off promoting one of the decentralized alternatives to Twitter? It seems to me that if we are creating an audience out of thin air either way, our effort would be more wisely spent fertilizing the tree that is incapable of being turned against us in the future than the one that can and probably will.

You're welcome to develop your own alternative. I will warn you though, I've been working on the problem for a couple of months, and there's no good solution, let alone a simple one. I am rapidly approaching the conclusion that neither gnu social nor pump.io will really work for what needs to be built.
