@FuckOffGoogleZurich @fsfe This is messed up. The FSFE's name is now tarnished in my eyes.

@Lofenyy @FuckOffGoogleZurich @fsfe It's like a Vegan accepting sponsorship from the biggest meat company in the world.

@StaticallyTypedRice @FuckOffGoogleZurich @fsfe Haha I know right? I'm more upset about the deception. Open and free are not the same thing.

I don't pay attention to them, but who knows what other deceiving ideas they promote.

@Lofenyy @FuckOffGoogleZurich @fsfe People will think that Google is okay to use because "a free software advocate likes it".

@FuckOffGoogleZurich
The @fsfe is not the FSF and has a different approach. They fund a lot of great software, but e.g. do not certify anything. Also they are lobbying for more use of actually free software in public administration. If you find these things bad, go on.

If you find a way to replace Google with an ethical sponsor I would agree. But right now you basically want fsfe to fire people. That is what google wants. "Let the community destroy themselves."

@laufi
FSFE are different from FSF, because they actually do something and have people take them seriously, unlike FSF that certifies 9 random devices with a meme sticker and calls it a year, while trying to figure out why people aren't donating to them.
@FuckOffGoogleZurich @fsfe

@laufi They don't need help firing people, thanks. Seems they are good at that. Especially people with vaginas, or em.. opinions maybe? @FuckOffGoogleZurich

@kino @FuckOffGoogleZurich so maybe you can backup your claim with some references?
