So this has been in the news and certain free software projects and the like are issuing statements in support of cancelling Richard M. Stallman, trying to get him to resign a second time, this time shortly after his re-appointment to the board of the FSF.
It is ridiculous and at some point cancel culture needs to be told a firm "no".
I would like to state my support for Stallman, and against the angry mob of SJWs that seek to cancel him.
What shall be the position of the Spyware Watchdog?
Normally I try to stay away from politics, but this is ridiculous.
There is no free Software movement without Richard Stallman.
I recommend linking to this on the front page: https://github.com/rms-support-letter/rms-support-letter.github.io. I myself don't have a github account, so I'm waiting on my friend to add my name the site in my place.
Frontpage has been updated.
Thank you! Can you forward this to the owner too, I emailed Stallman to tell him about the support letter, he told me this in return:
Can you ask the people who made this support letter
to invite people to sign by sending email to a given address?
The hostile open letter offers that option.
It would enable people like you without Github accts to sign.
My website if the owner of the support letter wants me to link something to prove I'm real, here you go: https://blog.honeypot.im. For metheperson, it's: http://zsxjtsgzborzdllyp64c6pwnjz5eic76bsksbxzqefzogwcydnkjy3yd.onion/index.xhtml.
(message from the repository owner)
*thanks for letting me know this, I don't have the capacity to accept signatures by email though, and i would need to process spam, deliberate attacks etc
so as much as i would love to, I don't have enough time to set this up*
if somebody else can handle this, I could add the email to the letter, and later on that person could give me a list of signatures to be added
I can setup an email to accept patches if he needs help.
I have class though soon, so after when I'm done I set that up.
Ok , i'm currently working on the aports repository.
While the cancel letter is utter nonsense (yeah I did read it too) , they don't even have a point on kicking out RMS out of the FSF and the GNU Project. Just bullshit
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
