"The myth of the #freespeech crisis" in the Guardian: "A moral right to express unpopular opinions is not a moral right to express those opinions in a way that silences the voices of others, or puts them in danger of violence. There are those who abuse free speech, who wish others harm, and who roll back efforts to ensure that all citizens are treated with respect. These are facts – and free-speech-crisis mythology is preventing us from confronting them." https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/sep/03/the-myth-of-the-free-speech-crisis

I just learned that all #Xiaomi #LineageOS builds are down due to a #DMCA Takedown. After #Gadgetbridge this is the second time I'm affected as a user. This is ridiculous https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2019/08/2019-08-09-SenseTime-5.md
