Andrew Torba CEO of Gab, writes:
“Gab has the superior product and user experience. There’s no comparison.”
I have been on Gab since mid 2019 and it really dosen’t work that well.
I had my problems here on WordPress and it has gotten worse, since their “update”. But WordPress works alot better than Gab and the same even goes for Twitter and YouTube.
“Gab has the superior team.”
I really doubt that.
Who is this “delusional” person?
This is Andrew Torba’s Gab TV channel and a video called ‘Based Poland’
If I met Andrew Torba in Denmark. I would think, that he was a Turkish immigrant.
I might be right.
Torba as a place may refer to:
- Torba, Bodrum, a village in Turkey
- Torba Province, Vanuatu
- Torba, a village in Măgherani Commune, Mureş County, Romania
- Torba, a frazione of Gornate Olona, Varese, Italy
- Torba, a cement-like material used for example in the construction of the Skorba Temples, Malta
Torba may also refer to:
Gab claims that its platform does not restrict content unless the content is not protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Restrictions on content on Gab include illegal activity, credible threats of violence, promotion of terrorism, obscenity, pornography, spamming, selling weapons or drugs, child exploitation, impersonation, and doxing.
In January 2021, Jazmin Goodwin from CNN described Gab’s moderation as “lax” and that this “approach on content has made way for a slew of QAnon conspiracy theories, misinformation and anti-Semitic commentary on the platform, among lots of vile hatred and racist posts – much of wouldn’t be allowed on today’s well-known social apps”.
On February 26, around a week after Gab briefly went offline, the company published a blog post denying a data breach had taken place. In the post, they wrote that they had been contacted by unnamed reporters who asked about a data breach that may have exposed an archive of posts, direct messages, profiles, and hashed passwords on Gab. Torba wrote in the blog post that there was no independent confirmation that a breach had taken place, and that Gab collects “very little from our users in terms of personal information”. He also accused the reporters of working with a hacker to hurt the company and its users.
On February 28, DDoSecrets revealed “GabLeaks”, a collection of more than 70 gigabytes of data from Gab, including more than 40 million posts, passwords, private messages, and other leaked information. The data was given to the group by a hacktivist self-identifying as “JaXpArO and My Little Anonymous Revival Project”, who retrieved the data from Gab’s back-end databases to expose the platform’s largely right-wing userbase. DDoSecrets co-founder Emma Best called GabLeaks “another gold mine of research for people looking at militias, neo-Nazis, the far right, QAnon and everything surrounding January 6.”
The group said that they would not release the data publicly due to the data containing a large amount of private and sensitive information and will instead share the data with select journalists, social scientists, and researchers. Andy Greenberg from Wired confirmed that the data “does appear to contain Gab users’ individual and group profiles—their descriptions and privacy settings—public and private posts, and passwords”.
In response, Torba acknowledged the data breach, said that his Gab account had been “compromised”, and that “the entire company is all hands investigating what happened and working to trace and patch the problem”. He also used a transphobic slur to insult the hackers “attacking” Gab and referred to them as “demon hackers.” On March 1, Torba revealed in a post on Gab’s blog that the company had received a ransom demand of $500,000 in Bitcoin for the data, and wrote in response that they would not be paying it.
Dan Goodin reported in Ars Technica on March 2 that Gab’s CTO, Fosco Marotto, had in February introduced a SQL vulnerability that may have led to the data breach, and that Gab had subsequently scrubbed the commit from Git history. The company had previously open sourced Gab’s source code in a Git repository which included all historical commits; on March 1, they took the repository offline and replaced it with a zipfile.
I don’t have anything against Christians. But someone who talk and write about religion all the time, makes me think of a recovering alcoholic or drug addict, who have to fill a gap.
People like Andrew Torba properly have good intentions. But it’s important to understand, that in the end Polacks, Turks, Jews, etc. will very likely undermind the cohesion amongst their Germanic host.
Prior to 1965, policies such as the national origins formula limited immigration and naturalization opportunities for people from areas outside Western Europe. Exclusion laws enacted as early as the 1880s generally prohibited or severely restricted immigration from Asia, and quota laws enacted in the 1920s curtailed Eastern European immigration. The civil rights movement led to the replacement of these ethnic quotas with per-country limits. Since then, the number of first-generation immigrants living in the United States has quadrupled.
There seem to be alot of good and ‘red pilled’ people on Gab.
There seem to be free speech.
That is what I feel is the greastest thing about Gab!
Of cause, this easily become an ‘echo chamber’. Unless you 110% pro-White, like me!
