Here's the thing though. If some dev not talking to or refusing to deal with your consistent toxicity and dog piling efforts is enough to 'radicalize' you, you were a racist piece of shit before all of that.
As much as these cats froth at the mouth about virtue signaling, they engage in it quite a bit.
If you don't like the software, just don't use it. Anything beyond that is some personal grudge shit that refuse to let go of.
So... @tbernard and I (mostly Tobias, really) did a thing couple weeks ago for LAS cause we found the conference name to be orthogonal to its goals.
Here's a blog post version of it.
"There is no “Linux” Platform"
Special shootout to @elementary for being the inspiration and case study for it and doing a kickass job all over the place.
"For some, open source is about making software less buggy and more robust by widening the pool of possible contributors. For others, it’s about giving users—at least the more technically skilled ones—more control over the software they use. For the most cynical, it’s a way to dupe people into working for free."
Fuck you, Jackie Lambie. Did you do a deal with the coalition to help you get re-elected? Or are you just a racist arsehole. Both maybe?
PCs are well-supported dumpster fires. Macs are poorly supported ivory towers. ARM boards will only boot if you get an image from a sketchy github repo in a dark alley, and then your SD card dies.
Pick as many as you want, sucker.
What’s an alternative to DNS that allows for self-moderation and openly accessible? The closest thing would be some sort of pet-name registry that ISPs and states could hold and people could opt to subscribe to. A bit similar to the Gossip protocol that Secure Scuttlebutt uses.

Black Friday is the day once a year where we wear black armbands to remind us of all the people who have been harmed or outright killed by capitalism. ✊🏴
Welcome to the annual Buy Nothing Friday!
Remember, by buying nothing today, you can flip the bird at the capitalists who control your Government, keep you struggling for basic necessities, kill people so they can sell you more cheap shit you don't need, and are destroying the planet's environment.
