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.

Particularly in the case of the #FSF, you can't divorce #RMS statements from that of the #FSF, and they quite understandably don't want to be associated with the kinds of things he's been saying.

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?

Why does #Stallman have to leave the #FSF now after he did way worse things in the past?

Why accuse #BrettKavanaugh again after he was cleared by fellow stupid white men and what about #HillarysEmails?

How about you get yourself some real arguments and then we can talk.

@emacsen @jalcine bro I'm sorry but is it really appropriate to have this particular sermon about his positive impact in the context of what he said? Even independent of any other behavior? You're in the shadow of some really awful stuff here.

Linux is more than Linus.

GNU and the FSF are more than RMS.

How about we see what kind of movement we can build if we centre the kind of people that the assholes and creeps of F/LOSS drove away?

Every time you think: "But what about all the good things he did", consider: "What about all the people and potentially great contributions we lost because of him."

We don't need leaders any more. We never did.

@craigmaloney @jalcine @emacsen that's cool. I never had ESR as a hero because he doesn't see people like me as fully human 🙃🙃🙃

@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

keep in mind that the GPLv2 is the brain child of eben moglen and the GPLv3 and AGPLv3 are the children of the GPL revision project, which was also lead by moglen -- not RMS. there is no need to boycott GPL over RMS.

@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'
