I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there’s nothing wrong with them (so say we all)
It’s always difficult admitting you’re wrong. But sometimes you have to in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. So, today, I admit that I was wrong about Google, Facebook, & surveillance capitalism in general being toxic for our human rights and democracy … it simply cannot be true given how they are endorsed by some of the most well-respected organisations in the world.
Hi @fsf as a member of the Free Software Foundation I'd like to hear your reply on @aral post found here: https://ar.al/2019/01/11/i-was-wrong-about-google-and-facebook-theres-nothing-wrong-with-them-so-say-we-all/
Would you please be so kind to respond to this no only here but also on your own website as this merits a well-written article in my opinion. Thank you!

"Oligarchy has been a more fundamental cause of the collapse of civilisations than social complexity or energy demand. Control by oligarchs, he argues, thwarts rational decision-making, because the short-term interests of the elite are radically different to the long-term interests of society. "
Are there #WordPress Core committers working on Multisite issues? Or is everyone all hands on #Gutenberg? Looking for feedback & getting this ticket merged: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/33209 to make WordPress Multisite safer out-of-the-box. Currently it will send out plain-text passwords!
@photomatt's dismissive responses on the concerns (including mine, see screenshot) raised in #WordPress dev-chat (https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RQBWTW/p1541620883681400) yesterday confirms my feeling #Gutenberg is not production-ready. My advise: install Classic-Editor plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor asap.
