Just read a post asking Eugen to resign from developing Mastodon and I really have to ask: what are you folks smoking?

It’s his project. It’s open source. Fork it if you want to. But what kind of mind-blowing sense of entitlement drives you to think you can tell someone they should stop working on something they’ve built?


@aral I assume the monthly paychecks they are sending is why they feel entitled to ask for Eugen's resignation.

@meisam @aral Then the right step would be to stop sending those paychecks? The Mastodon gGmbH is still a privately owned company, AFAIK


@sheogorath Apparently, the sarcasm was not so obvious in my last comment! Sorry about that. 😅
