Being that mainstream media propagandists keep reaching out to me for comment on Gab’s election day policies I thought it would be helpful if I wrote a post to let the world know how Gab will be handling the election and what our policies will be.
Gab Community Members,
Thank you for the best month in Gab’s four year history.
We are distinctly honored to serve all 4.6 million of you (and growing!) from around the world.
Gab was visited ~20 million times in October and served 2.3 billion requests. These requests represent real conversations happening between real people that otherwise would not have been had.

Dear Mr. President:
Today was the biggest day in Gab’s history. For over four years we have been warning about Big Tech’s unchecked control and abuse of power over the flow of information, news, and communication online.
Gab is a company that exists to promote American values on the global Internet including defending, protecting, and preserving free speech for all people.
It’s not Gab’s job to “fact check” political opinions, news, history, math problems, memes, or anything else.
Today Facebook announced that it would be banning all “QAnon accounts” across all of its platforms. This includes banning individual accounts as well as QAnon groups across both Facebook itself and Instagram. Facebook also announced that it has an internal “Dangerous Organizations Operations” team that will be monitoring for and banning these accounts.
Today is a tremendous milestone for the Gab community. After over a year of work Gab is finally migrated to our own in-house servers. If you talk to anyone in the technology industry they will tell you that this is no easy task. Most technology startups have the luxury of using third-party cloud hosting providers like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and others.
