Google: Hello, for reasons we won't explain you can no longer submit updates to your app to the Playstore until you make changes to it we won't specify. We will send you the same mail again if you appeal but have fun trying regardless.
Also Google, a few days later: We feel like we haven't wasted enough of your time yet, please answer these questions about your recent app suspension, did you think it was as funny as we did?

I just want to publish the app I develop for free in my freetime and I have absolutely zero energy to deal with this shit but because of Googles monopoly I have to.

Here is the rule they say Tusky violates. Yes Tusky shows "User generated content" but I don't have any control over it. There are also no terms of use, why would Tusky have terms of use, it makes no sense.



I believe that Tusky had issue with it not wanting to be used by certain instances.

While I understand the sentiment, I think that this is a mistake, and depending on how/what, may make the software non-FLOSS.

@emacsen @ConnyDuck why would an instance try to dictate what app end users can access it with? That makes zero sense

@rolenthedeep @ConnyDuck

No, Tusky wanted to not be used with certain instances (ie Gab).

@emacsen @rolenthedeep @ConnyDuck And this does not make the app non-FLOSS, I don't understand how you get the idea that this might be the case.

@morre @rolenthedeep @ConnyDuck

If you put that in the license or TOU, it makes the app non-FLOSS.
