I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.

My motivations:

- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.

@fedilab Did Google ever really have cause to remove it in the first place? They won't remove an app for being used a certain way, will they?

@masterofthetiger
They did so for Tumblr, causing the pornographic content ban on tumblr.
(Not sure if Google or Apple).

But I think they never blocked a generic client like a browser or mail program, just because it can be used to access banned content somewhere on the web.
