Is anyone interested in starting a new adaptive GTK Rust client for Signal for Linux smartphones and desktops? I wrote a post on the @PINE64 forum about my reasoning for this technical approach:
*Do not respond to this with criticism of Signal*. If you're annoying about that, I'll block you.
@fsf This is meaningless until it is backed up by action by removing Stallman from the FSF board and GNU. I am also disappointed by validating the bad faith attacks trying to deligitimize people's free speech by claiming they are somehow violating Stallman's right to free speech by holding him accountable. Trying to appease both sides typically ends up pleasing no one.
Richard M Stallman
@Dee IME this isn't needed. Just say anything about Stallman and the trolls will come out to defend him.
Holy shit look at this yarn my amazing wife dyed
Stanford scientists reverse-engineered the Moderna COVID vaccine from discarded remnants, and have posted the mRNA sequence publicly on GitHub https://www.vice.com/en/article/7k9gya/stanford-scientists-reverse-engineer-moderna-vaccine-post-code-on-github
The Tor Project has made it clear to Freedom Software Foundation and #LibrePlanet in the past that we did not want to participate in the event if they welcomed RMS back.
To re-instate him without notifying the community prior to the event is against the transparency we stand for in this community.
The Tor Project is joining calls for Richard M. Stallman to be removed from board, staff, volunteer, and other leadership positions in the FOSS community, including the Free Software Foundation and the GNU Project. Sign the open letter: https://rms-open-letter.github.io/
#OtD 25 Mar 1939 the Nazis brought in a new law forcing all 10-18y olds into the Hitler Youth. Despite Nazi efforts, thousands of working class teens formed the Edelweiss Pirates, who fought the Hitler Youth and helped Jews and POWs.

After attending a funeral in Mozambique, 75 people died. They'd all drunk pombe, a traditional alcoholic beverage, which had poisoned them with Bongkrekic Acid that had developed from the fermentation of the corn used in the drink. There is no known ant...

Just give people the things that they need to survive without all this fuss, and then let people who want to make shit make shit and let it help everyone else.
And if you are going to argue about how that doesn't work, the entire fucking internet is built by people who have enough resources to not worry and so they make shit.
The internet runs on linux, that is what you get when only a tiny section of the population has time to just play around.
So let everyone else do that too
anyway, if you're making calls to tolerance and just getting along:
1) remember that "getting along" has always looked like letting your idols/big stars/etc push people out
2) redirect that energy toward the people who ARE the problem, not the people responding to the problem
3) don't @ me
Wild how many white men (and yes I am seeing this today specifically from white men) would prioritize "what if we can just learn to get along with each other" when the people they want folks to "get along with" are actively driving people out of the community.
Put your energy on THOSE people, not on the people who have a problem with those people.
'"But we wouldn't have X without [horribly toxic person]"
True, but you cannot even FATHOM all the ideas/products/processes/community leadership you've lost out on from the people you've driven out.
You're focusing on a couple constellations at the expense of the Milky Way
