What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us 

For every gross dude you tolerate, there's almost certainly several people who are pushed out of that space you created for him

The more influential the gross dude, the more people will emulate him and help to push out even more people

And it's mostly women who get pushed out

So for the likes of RMS and Torvalds, the damage they have done to the field of Computer Science may be incalculable

Good riddance

Richard Stallman resigns as president of the Free Software Foundation

Our statement: fsfe.org/news/2019/news-201909

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

I wrote about how we, F/LOSS lovers, need to drop toxic 'heroes' and need to either reform or move on from organizations that WON'T help v2.jacky.wtf/post/intersection

😩
i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license

i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important

but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦‍♂️

i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why

gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead

I need help completing the information here for various desktop environments: danielfore.com/linuxisnotabout

In light of the recent events on this instance and the way I've seen everyone act (so far) in response to it, I've decided to double my Patreon contribution to show my support for the instance and the people that run it and try their best to make it a nice corner of the Fediverse.

And I think it has always been, and still is, a very nice corner of the Fediverse. People behave well enough here that we don't even *need* a CoC.

So thanks Kev, Mike, and the moderator team for the job you do here.

On Saturday I started practising sabre fencing. I think I found my sport thing after a while.

The @kde has done an absolutely incredible job creating a truly world class user experience. We at GNOME appreciate everything you have done to push the #FOSS desktop forward, and we continue to be inspired by your community and vision! 🤗

This was actually completely new to me, so probably to someone else too! A Pathfinder character sheet site that is actually pretty damn nice (in comparison with the official sites online sheet)

Sadly no DnD or other :/

Reading about Antergos closing shop on reddit and realizing people on reddit are morons.
"Baaah! Fragmentation is bahd they will do what I say now instead"

This is FLOSS, there is no "fragmentation", just people doing something (like the Antergos devs) or people NOT doing something (see: "everyone on reddit")
