"Google suspending Parler from the Google Play store," says a story on Hacker News.

I've got to laugh. If Parler had been a progressive web app, it wouldn't have needed an app store. If Trump's pulpit had been a decentralized social network, such as secure scuttlebutt, he wouldn't have been kicked off it, because there would not have been a benevolent dictator powerful enough to administer the kick. This, by the way, was why someone wrote recently how he doesn't support decentralized web anymore — precisely because on such a web, there would be a place even for deplorables.

I, for one, welcome a place big enough to house both the normies and the deviants.
