PSA: Free Speech doesn't mean everyone has to give you a platform. Moderating content isn't #censorship. The current discussion around #FDroid and gab has nothing to do with free speech at all.

If you want to distribute an app that no one else wants to host make your own repo.
If you have an opinion that isn't welcome anywhere else make your own blog.

Or: if nobody likes "your opinion" maybe you should think a little bit, because your "opinion" seems to be a shitty belief and not an opinion ;D #fuckgab
It is censorship, calling it curation doesn't make it not censorship.
You can be alright with censorship, it's fine to have values that you consider more important than speech/expression, but it doesn't mean that speech/expression isn't hindered.

The main problem with this argument tends to be the knock-on chilling effects, not everyone is as convinced censorship will only continue to be done with noble intentions.

I don't see anything that even remotely fits for this situation.
