This is a shitpost but there's probably an extreme fossbro at suckless or plan9 who legitimately thinks that

@Siphonay ah, not quite (at least not usually)
I generally do not connect to web sites from my own machine, aside from a few sites I have some special relationship with. I usually fetch web pages from other sites by sending mail to a program (see https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/womb/hacks.git) that fetches them, much like wget, and then mails them back to me. Then I look at them using a web browser, unless it is easy to see the text in the HTML page directly. I usually try lynx first, then a graphical browser if the page needs it (using konqueror, which won't fetch from other sites in such a situation).

@seek @Siphonay i'm not familiar with this site at all, it was just the first search result, but it links sources https://geekfeminism.wikia.org/wiki/Richard_Stallman
@Siphonay nyaa, I still cheat sometimes and curl it into a text editor that parses basic HTML 2.0 as rich text formatting. 😿 Lazy cat...
@Siphonay never underestimate how irrationally and intensely some techbros are willing to justify their perceived superiority with nonsense like that
