saw an order with "[name] and [other name] forever" as the originator and then I realised one of those people works there and definitely doesn't have the last name "Forever"
so this means someone, almost certainly a full grown adult, has the delusion their relationship will last forever
and decided to tell a dentist supply company about it like we give a fuck
what the hell is wrong with people
@OpenComputeDesign freedom of speech applies to the government trying to shut you up, not organisations like the FSF booting people out over statements they feel are troublesome.
It's also not the first time. No way would he have been axed if this was the one and only time he put his foot in it.
@emacsen Being president-for-life is never a good thing. #RMS has so many merits that he could have easily retired and just continue to be an important voice as the elder statesman of Free software. Just as Mandela after he stepped down and unlike persons who missed the right moment and had to be forced from power, such as Mugabe.
But the way it happened now is incredibly sad. RMS to be remembered as a defender of Epstein? Why on earth did he do that?
I read a lot of #WhatAboutIsm "arguments" today.
Why does #RMS have to leave if other assholes get to keep their positions in other organizations?
How about you get yourself some real arguments and then we can talk.
abuse, sexism, MIT etc
“Move fast and break things” is an abomination if your goal is to create a healthy society.
Freedom alone was never enough. For freedom to be worth anything you have to care about people, understand their experiences, know the limits of your own perspective. You have to understand the ways in which people are vulnerable where you are not.
Freedom that doesn't care about other people is simply Ego.
@emacsen I'm having a bit of difficulty understanding the part around sadness. This is like 20 years of (only 5 I've observed) people railing for this to happen. I'm a proponent of restorative justice (I actually do want him to begin going to therapy to work on his empathy skills) but he willingly did a lot
@Siphonay big crab rave moment, one less shitty tech beard.
But Jesus he didn't even apologize, he just said "you didn't get what I was saying'
now the primary cause ergh #nobot
