Maybe it's time to accept that there's no such thing as an inherently Nazi-proof platform.
Nazis are like roaches, ants, and other vermin. Relax your vigilance long enough and they'll show up.

If we want a Nazi-free platform, it's up to all of us to make it happen. We shouldn't depend on developers, or even admins.

For the individual/for the organization section with calls to action
Updated additional features with things like custom emojis, delete & redraft, focal points, over a million people
Link to the Mastodon bridge below list of servers ("Find Twitter friends")
Added link to masto.host in the "install your own" section (not affiliated)
Replaced "how it works" section with shorter, more concise blurbs

You tell me if this makes sense.
1. NASA's Official Mars Landing Video Got Taken Off YouTube Over Bogus Copyright Claims
"The Curiosity Rover may have landed safely on the surface of Mars, but like all good things, it's not invulnerable to completely bogus takedown requests.
(...)[T]he video was rendered unavailable due to a copyright claim by Scripps Local News."

The Onion has opened fire on Facebook, which is quite entertaining and savage at times,
“Take this blood money and shove it up your ass, you depraved sack of shit,” said 8-year-old Emmy Bowman, echoing the sentiments of millions of children across the country who confirmed they would rather never learn to read and write than take cash from someone as morally bankrupt as Mark Zuckerberg.
Also it's exciting to see many how many great projects are based on federation now:
• micro-blogging: GNU Social, Mastodon ¹ & Pleroma ¹
• social: Diaspora
• photo sharing: Pixelfed ¹
• music: Funkwhale ¹
• messaging: Matrix
and maybe soon:
• blogging: Plume ¹
• social: Aardwolf ¹
¹ using ActivityPub (so potentially all interoperable)
