@foggy @Tusky we just received another $5 / month, 3 more of those and we've reached the goal (considering your above statement!)

Anyone want to pitch in to Tusky by helping donate, for our match donation goal?

Because that is the core of Software Freedom/Liberty: the right for a Person to take a software that expresses a [political] view they disagree with, obtain a copy of that software with equal capability as the distributor, modify that [political] view to be more amenable, and then redistribute it without any additional licensing burdens.

It's never about what specific views or capabilities are in the software itself. Heck, you could fork and purposefully add bugs and it is still no less Freedom respecting.

I find it incredibly surprising that many #FOSS or #FLOSS folk take the 0th pillar's "freedom of use" to mistakenly mean "freedom of usage by creating a software feature" instead of the true intended meaning: "freedom of usage under the license conditions".

Because that's what RMS has always been about: the software licenses being symmetrical in power between the distributor of software and receiver of software. It creates a level playing field in terms of what "politics" are contained in the software.

HEY. @Tusky is excellent. As of me writing this post, their Open Collective balance stands at $1592.59.

If people can get $200 more dollars in the till (that's $1792.59) by the end of the day tomorrow (36 hours for me, give or take a few), I'll match it with $200 dollars of my own.

I also challenge other folks in tech with a little money to throw around to match my match, even partially.

Todays #Tusky nightly update is release candidate for Tusky 8! Please test and tell me about any bugs.

@sir I think the rickroll is in the classic hacker spirit. Also people who absolutely refuse to discriminate against neo-nazis - prioritizing detached posturing above other people's safety - don't have much backbone or sense of the contemporary situation imho.

@gaditb @fuzzylynx @fedilab @Tusky @codewiz @mayel Yea but, to be blunt, if you were a Gab user then nobody here ought to care about your relationship with Gab's admin. So if I as a dev decide to bar you from using my app to spread hate over on gab, my only feeling for your frustrated relationship with your instance admins is schadenfreude. You don't get to use my labour to call for genocide.

Btw, would you like to have the option to show link previews on all statuses, not only on detailed ones?
Link previews are generated by the server, #Tusky would not connect to the linked websites.

Before I go off to celebrate Midsummer by being in bed sick (Swedish woes), I want to share a small update.

will keep blocking servers which actively promote fascism. This in particular means Gab.

We will get our next release out just in time for the 4th of July.

Don't even try to debate us about Free Speech. This is our speech, exercising views. And we will keep doing it :toot:

We will post a bigger update at a later time about what this all really means.
