I'm resigning from @firstname.lastname@example.org High Priority Projects committee and my position as chair, due to the surprise reinstatement of RMS to the FSF board. My talks last weekend for #LibrePlanet2021 were before I (or anyone?) had knowledge of this. I must act in solidarity with women and marginalized voices.
The worst part about RMS being back on the board of the FSF (from my perspective, YMMV) is that this submarine bullshit of "hey, guess who's back" undermines the very foundation of trust and openness that the FSF is supposed to foster.
"Don't trust corporations with your private data or they'll do bad things with it" rings fucking hollow when "trust us to be above board with our openness" is met with an end-run announcement that someone who has lost trust is back on the board.
As the year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to extend my appreciation to all of you for the good times and laughs, throughout 2020. She's been a hell of a year but, we made it. From loved ones lost to great successes, this year has been a wild roller coaster of a ride. Whether you're working or enjoying it with loved ones, I hope all of you enjoy bringing in the new year and do so, safely.
Thanks, again, for making Fosstodon such a fun atmosphere and great community.
Thanks to all fellow users at this instance out there.
You all made my first experience with the fediverse a great and pleasant adventure.
Greetings to all my followers, if I only knew what caused you to do that. 🤔
Happy New year, glad to meet you all here!
I hate to ask, but here goes.
I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!
My site is https://rusingh.com and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯
A big "welcome!" to all of our new members. It's great to see all the new faces and the steady flow of introductory toots!
For those members (new and old) that don't know, https://hub.fosstodon.org/ is full of information that is relative to our instance. From staff members to our Code of Conduct, you can find more information about Fosstodon! Make sure to check it out and, if you haven't already done so, make your first toot and tell us a bit about yourself.
#nobot should not even be necessary. No bots should ever follow or even interact with anyone unless explicitly requested by that person. I block any that do so.
