Moderation and Reporting Features on Gab

Last updated: Jan 12, 2021 2:05 AM

Gab is a free speech site that follows the law as defined by the U.S. Supreme Court and the First Amendment #1A.
This means that some speech is illegal and won't be tolerated on Gab.  Gab takes a firm stance against illegal content.  Violators may be warned, suspended or banned from using Gab's services, depending on the nature of the violation.

Report creation:
Find the ellipsis (3 dots) in every Gab post or directly under a comment in a comment thread, or on a Gabber's Profile page under their profile banner.
  • Mute - prevents you from seeing their content
  • Block - mutes the gabber, removes them from following you and prevents them from seeing your content  
  • Report to Gab -  notifies gab moderators

Moderation tools:
Gab believes that gabbers are responsible adults providing mute or block options to manage your own feed.  Some gabbers enjoy the free flow of free speech, others may find free speech to be raw and offensive.  Using the mute, block or unfollow options can change your gab experience.
Each gabber can set their own content preferences with mute / block filters.   The filter provides a method to further refine content that you view by selecting certain words/phrases to filter out.  You may review the gab accounts you've previously muted/blocked in your Menu.  You may also reverse any mute or block you've previously made.

Great video to show how to filter links.  You can do the same with specific words.  It is CaSe and Sym8ol specific, so each variation should be added.

Reporting Tools:
Report to the Gab moderators anything you believe is a violation of Gab's Terms of Service or unlawful.  
Including: direct threats, porn, doxxing, fedposting, site abuse, spam or illegal posts.  

Gab group admins moderate their own group/channel.  They set the acceptable posting/comment guidelines.    Please review the group description "About" before posting in a group.  If a post breaks the ToS (terms of service), the admin may report it to Gab for follow up.
Group admins may use an additional spam filter that will place any new post from newly created gab accounts into a preview que for a group admin/mod's inspection.   A group admin/moderator will accept/reject the post in the moderation quie.  This moderatin filter is found in the group's settings and is available on each group for the admin/mods.

Outside agitators occasionally post awful threats etc. in violation of our TOS, a phenomenon known as "fedposting."
We happily provide lawbreakers' data to law enforcement when subpoenaed, so if abusing our site is your idea of a fun time you should think twice." ~ Andrew Torba, Gab's CEO
