@Siphonay @ConnyDuck AFAIK functionality (or lack thereof) alone does not determine whether software is free or nonfree in the context of FOSS.

@Siphonay @ConnyDuck @Tusky lol! Ikr? RMS is a really low bar to clear, yet FOSS bros still decided to play limbo instead.

@ConnyDuck @Tusky what else should it be if there is the whole source code I can alter and compile myself?! How is this even worth discussing? :antifa: :anarchoheart1: :hug:

@ConnyDuck Hell no. I am now fully belonging to the working class. I will not waste my free time to explain the tolerance paradox to libertarians because others already did in the thread and it looks like they do not care or understand.

@ConnyDuck @Tusky I can't believe I agree with Stallman on something lmao

@ConnyDuck Richard Stallman DESTROYS Gab fanboys with FACTS and LOGIC

@Gargron @ConnyDuck I like how he calls ordinary users "non-wizard users" 🧙‍♂️

@ConnyDuck @Tusky I considered asking him, but refrained because of the kind of hell that would be unleashed if he didn’t agree.

@brainblasted @ConnyDuck @Tusky i mean he's drafting up an article on it apparently. so its going to cause a shit storm regardless of his thoughts.

@oct2pus @ConnyDuck @Tusky yup. But I think this way the shitstorm isn’t going to be as targeted against us.

@ConnyDuck @Tusky the fact that mail filters exist should’ve made this obvious

@ConnyDuck @Tusky jeez, have all these fake free software enthusiasts never listened to an rms talk

he makes it _very_ clear what his exact principles are honestly

@ConnyDuck lmao at the spineless asshole one post above who signed up a week ago solely to stink up that thread and then has the cajones to complain about the veracity of the wiki page

@ConnyDuck @Tusky the fucking president of the FSF having to be hailed just to convince dummies on the internet that software doing a thing you don't like isn't a license violation

good lord

@ConnyDuck @Tusky


holy shit yall had to tear into em huh

@bclindner @ConnyDuck @Tusky The power of the Fediverse at work. We're not doomed or dying like mainstream media likes to claim and this is proof. We've grown so much and are therefore deemed such a threat to Nazis that the motherfucking FSF had to step in! Keep fighting. ✊

@ConnyDuck @Tusky The real issue is that it redirects to a website that cannot be used without proprietary JavaScript.

Still doesn't mean it's not wrong to block domains, though.

@connyduck Even projects that would try to erase all files if ran from a Belgian IP address can still be free software. There's no legal way around this.
That thread on the F-Droid forum is ridiculous.
@connyduck I do believe that putting anti-features in code is against what free software stands for, but this is not a legal issue.
After all, AOSP is free software, too.
I think code used for bootloader locking in upstream Android is free, too.
