So apparently the Anti-#Stallman open letter is no longer open. A bunch of people asked to have their names taken off, so the repository has been locked down and can no longer be changed.
What a bunch of cowards, am I right?
A friend of mine showed me this part of the #Libreboot blog post for 03-30 of this year. Leah Rowe has scrapped the project's CoC (the Contributor's Covenant) and thoroughly demolished ethical source licenses and their originator, Coraline Ada Ehmke.
Good for you, Leah. Rock the fuck on. Free means free.
I have to say, actually, the mailing list entry provided actually strengthens my faith in #Debian and the #Linux community in general. To judge #freesoftware contributors and their work on their own merits and refuse to discriminate on political leanings shows tremendous strength of character, especially in this political climate where #censorship is prevalent.
Obligatory disclaimer: Obviously I don't support Nazis, I just don't support blanket political censorship.
I like how the term #alttech has officially become a "thing." I'm pretty sure it was intended as a method of tarring the #BigTech #socialmedia giants' competitors as being havens for the #altright, but in the process they've created a catchy and effective name to call those competitors by while simultaneously informing people that they're relatively low on #censorship, more focused on privacy, and virtually ad-free.
Join us on the alt-tech! There's some wonderful and intelligent people here!

#Twitter is allegedly refusing to remove child porn from their platform.
I don't normally do platform drama but if you're still on Twitter and looking for an excuse to leave, I can hardly think of a better one. Let #BigTech fail.
I haven't really been a strong advocate of Brave, but with the recent glut of #censorship in major #socialmedia outlets this might be an accessible means of #decentralization to help get people thinking about an independent and free Internet. Fingers crossed!
#BigTech are engaging in massive political #censorship resulting in an influx of users to independent & federated platforms like #Gab, #Mastodon, and other federated services. The call for #decentralization is louder than ever. People are tired of their #politics and their opinions being curated by media companies with politicians in their pockets.
The Internet is changing, and with it will society.
This is the way the world ends. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a bookmark
There's a serious threat to Internet #privacy brewing in Germany.
Shit like this is why so many people are growing increasingly critical of the left wing and liberal media, because they promote ridiculously broad hate speech legislation and then this happens. Congrats, now we're living in a police state and who that affects is completely arbitrary.
Remind me again why so few EU states have #freespeech protections!
I'm an aspiring #gamedev who occasionally pretends to be a writer. I believe very strongly in free software and the free market and oppose censorship in all its forms.
