@laemeur @sledge Partly because the man covered in shit scenario also applies to open source platform. If you haven't seen it; First En Kompis En Kompis and then Gargamel have poisoned the well for this platform. There is also a huge problem with gargantuan ammounts of Lolicon and other lewd material from Pawoo. With firstname.lastname@example.org gone, Robek, Moonman and Nepfag are basically the only game in town to most people.
Social proof also plays a large role here: When Twitter has cucked out, most of the Altright and Krauts moved to Gab.ai which has developed some paid features the alternative media people like to use.
