Having a proper "perfer dark" preference is something we'd like, but doing that in a non-hacky way is a ton of work.
For example, you need to make it opt-in for apps, to avoid glitches like illegible text. You need to make sure non-GTK apps, websites, etc. can access the preference. You need tooling for developers to test with both dark and light, etc. etc.
Changing the system stylesheet is a hack, not a real solution and should definitely not be be exposed in system settings by default.

Worst error message of the day. Hey @email@example.com, is this really the best you could do? I understand that when all else fails, exposing the implementation may be the only option left, but is this what you'd call user-friendly?

State of #IsolateGab effort:
So as of summer 2019 when Gab ported every single user they had (active or dead) into a forked version of #Mastodon, the founder publicly said they had "over 1 million." As of today *still* just barely over 1 million.
And I suspect the lions share of those are inactive dead accounts still.
And look at the "insularity." 99.1 percent. They are just Gablins inside their echo chamber talking to themselves. And over time that just won't be sustainable.
Servers cost money, and even as they beg for donations, offer "premium features" for pay that other Fediverse servers offer for free, and do deals with whatever VPN's that are willing to take racists and nazi finders fees, still... it won't last if they can't grow.
They forked the #Mastodon code base because their expensive closed source platform was failing and couldn't sustain over time.
Keep it going in 2020.
