‪The culture around has always been about inclusiveness, a place where no one cared about your background. The movement trying to mirror US identity politics is creating a toxic culture. People in the community should focus on Free Software issues and mentoring.‬

The Software Freedom Conservancy Does Not and Cannot Speak for the Free Software Movement bobcall.me/conservancy.html

@dthompson why is it not justifiable to ask for creditable proof for the claims being made? Throughout this whole shit show, people have been using examples that have nothing to do with the claim being made, are a non-issue or are examples of the politically correct gone a muck.

@gmcgath yes and I have sadly been in the front seat. Holding a grudge is no excuse for unprofessional conduct and slandering RMS. There were better ways to get RMS to transition away from the FSF and GNU; this was not it. sfconservancy.org/news/2019/se

If @fdroidorg wants to ban clients that promote "free speech", why have they not banned Chanu? I would say that there is more "hate speech" on 4chan than Gab.

@soapdog "While we Blink, we loose the Web" : We lost the web because Mozilla chose to throw user freedom and privacy out the window. Studies (malware), Pocket (srv. still non-free), EME, Ministry of Truth and forced telemetry are reasons why I don't trust Mozilla. There are no good alternatives and have not been for at least 5+ years.
