What if, *if*, this campaign against RMS in FSF is just a corporate attack to undermine free software as a whole?
Just take a look at the people that signed the open letter against him. Most of them are employed by big companies, and now even Red Hat, owned by IBM, is severing ties with the FSF.
I'd risk to say this is not about making FLOSS inclusive, but more about killing the movement.
Our article on Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation was updated (see the bottom).
The FSF announced some changes to their procedures.
KDE: "On the reappointment of Richard Stallman as a director of the Free Software Foundation"
This sets the right tone. Proud of KDE.
I was just "cancelled" and blocked by an user because I think that RMS and FSF board should be talked with BEFORE being cancelled, because I don't agree with cancel culture.
This is absurdly offensive in so many ways. The letter that was sent to the author, from a Brazilian, was so peaceful and friendly, and this is what we get as a reply.

In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.
Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.
An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg
You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: https://switching.software/replace/google-play/
After months of stalling, Google finally revealed how much personal data they collect in Chrome and the Google app. No wonder they wanted to hide it.
Spying on users has nothing to do with building a great web browser or search engine. We would know (our app is both in one).
