Re: using a fork of Gab, I totally get where your concern is coming from -- however, this is just not how open source software works.

For example, our server runs on GNU/Linux - the Linux part is maintained by Linus Torvalds, a known asshole. Lots of people don't want to work with him because of how abusive he's been. However to say you won't use any site that runs on Linux means you pretty much don't use the internet at all. In particular, we use Ubuntu, a GNU/Linux distribution. The creator of Ubuntu said that "Linux is hard to explain to girls".

Most programming languages were created by men - many of them misogynists. Mastodon itself is run by a man whom some women have claimed is a sexual abuser. He allows his site to be rampant with porn and prostitution and refuses to do anything to protect women. The only women you'll see on most mastodon instances are being bought and sold for sex -- yet someone feminists are more okay with using this software?

If we refused to use software created by people we find "problematic" - there would be no software left. Nevermind the fact that removing the features Gab has created would essentially destroy the site as we know it now.

Seriously, I have no idea why tht would give you one of the safest, securest, privacy-respecting engines as default, but that is sure not Startpage's 'fault'. Maybe they also hate google?
They score higher than DDG on several points, actually. Don't trust me, or them = research!

What OS are YOU using, BTW? I mean viruses?

Duckin is cool because no JS option, no so secure or private as others. Even results are less optimal.
Servers are subjected to US laws.
No 3rd party ever checks them officially.
