It should be a crime for companies using any sort of licensing or DRM to claim that their products are bought, rather than rented. When you buy a $2000 Apple product, they tell you what you can and cannot do with it, from apps to general usage. Apple is not the only company to do this; Microsoft, Google, Sony, Samsung, and many more, are guilty of this crime.
Only when you use freedom respecting software are you buying the product, because you own it and the rights to do what you want with it.
NOTE: I don't send any spam, there's no reason to block my IP. I have DKIM, SPF and strict DMARC set up, so only I can send email from my server.
My IP wasn't blocked a month ago, when I migrated to my current server; so they did it recently. Once again, Microsoft being an asshole.
Garbagesoft is once again blocking email from my server to their's. I have nothing to say except: FUCK YOU, MICROSOFT.
A single company can block you from their servers whenever they want, and thus letting you without contact with a big part of the internet. Don't use Outlook, don't use Gmail, fuck those companies.
For which excuse are applications from the public administration not released as Free Software. Those are paid with people's money, and people must have the four freedoms on that program.

👉 Next time you continue, you have to find the position you stopped, manually.
❓ Of course you could take a note in some way and use that, but in the digital world there should be smarter solutions. Do you know any?
At what point instead of being Linux or GNU/Linux, our systems will be totally Systemd?
What you're referring to Linux is in fact SystemdOS, or as I've recently taken to call it, SoystemD. Linux is not a system onto itself but rather the base of Systemd-kerneld, made useful by systemd-utilsd, systemd-packagemanagerd and systemd-editord
People of the Fediverse, any suggestions for a small, free as in freedom link shortener to self-host?
For my personal use, not expecting it to be for public usage. I've seen many but they require an actual SQL database, when it could probably be a couple lines of PHP or CGI, but don't want to build it myself
