@musicmatze Every community needs an extremist that pulls in the other direction from the rest of the world. Which he has done.
@musicmatze For sure he has done a lot of good work. But I also think that his role has been less and less important for the past 10 years.
But I think that for the past 10 years he has possibly done more harm than good because he's not a good leader figure for people to look up to.
If people who aren't already introduced to FSF ideologies and ideals would go to a talk with him, they would probably leave. After 3 minutes or so.
@mike Yeah, so that happened. I never thought that I'd would see that day.
Kinda saw that coming.

@uint8_t You'll get used to it 😉
A busy weekend.
Attached is my post to the #FSF member forum on Friday.
Enough is enough.
It's long past time the board exercised their duty under Article VI Section 7 of the bylaws and vote him out. I understand that they have tried before but failed. But by now, his behavior is doing serious harm to the public interest the public charity is chartered to support.
Many other folks have also cancelled their memberships over the weekend.
@tjg I know, I've been there before. But I want to visit a friend who lives there :)
@tjg I won't come to Vienna this time. But I will hang out for a bit in Prague both before and after NixCon.
@beegrrl It may be so that Keybase isn't right for me 😃
@beegrrl And for the longest time I've never understood keybase's trust model.
I upload my public key, and add a device and get a paper key thingy.
Then if I want to add another device I need to use another already trusted device or the paper key to authorize this. Because my GPG key that I take great care about and store on a smartcard etc isn't trusted to add another device to my account?
The whole paper key thingy is weird. And why isn't the most secure asset (imo) considered proof?
@beegrrl Some day I should build my own contact card system that validates online resources with gpg signatures. Any day now.
@beegrrl And yes, I totally see both sides of the issue.
@isagalaev 2) That's a mobile keyboard typo. "The amount of conversations". Mostly about browsers or other solutions that people use. Which has been very interesting :)
@beegrrl Hmm, well. I kinda mostly found it useless. The only thing I used it for was kinda a "contact card" with verified resources on other places. Then there was a lot of additional things.
But I would still like to have that contact card thing.
And now that sks is dead (long live sks) I would like a new distribution of gpg key signatures. The new keyservers doesn't do that which breaks web of trust.
@beegrrl Oh well, I don't have an account anymore. Mostly because I didn't use it for anything and mainly because of this issue: https://github.com/keybase/keybase-issues/issues/1593
@isagalaev I'm surprised by three points.
1) The amount of votes and notifications I've got
2) The amount of food conversations I've had with people
3) That chrome wasn't higher, I know that there's many die hard Linux users that use chrome. I thought it would be more visible here.
