Elon Musk really can't let the whole slandering the cave guy thing go it's like his version of Trump's Alabama hurricane forecast https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/09/17/elon-musk-pedo-guy-thai-cave-rescue-lawsuit/

Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/organisation-stakeholder-dialogue-application-article-17-directive-copyright-digital-single .. Please speak up!
Prediction markets are now giving Hillary Clinton a better shot at the 2020 nomination than Cory Booker
rant about negativity on online friends
It's such a fucking neurotypical thing.
Like "online friends are not real friends"
So once anyone comes online, they become unreal. Got it!
Online friends did 1,000x more to keep me alive than my entire family did and all my "real friends" did in my life
Just because I can't touch someone, doesn't make them unreal
In short: Just because you don't understand it, doesn't make it not existing
Apparently this is what RMS thinks qualifies as an apology https://stallman.org/archives/2019-jul-oct.html#14_September_2019_(Sex_between_an_adult_and_a_child_is_wrong) (background: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/9ke3ke/famed-computer-scientist-richard-stallman-described-epstein-victims-as-entirely-willing)
i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license
i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important
but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦♂️
i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why
gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead
