@ariasuni Free software needs to be disconnected from politics. Judging someone as good or bad is not the purpose of FOSS. Repositories in FOSS cannot and should not get burried in the app police role that Google and Apple have taken.We need to be better than that. If you don't like projects, you can speak out, and you have, and that's good. But asking someone to silence something you don't like is itself fascistic.

Free Software was political from the beginning, because of its ethical and ideological motivations.

How the fuck fighting against hate speech is the same than Apple and Google protecting their economical interests??

1. It’s not something «I don’t like», it’s something that actively and blatantly hurts marginalized people. That’s a *fact*.
2. No it’s not. I don’t know, just read Wikipedia or open a dictionary, you’ll see how much saying this is bullshit.

Seriously, I just want F-Droid to not support or facilitate hate speech, and you’re saying I’m a fascist. That’s so fucking backwards.

@ariasuni

fascistic != fascist. It's fascistic. I'm not labeling you, but I think you're ideology in this point goes against moving forward together as a human race that is moving towards a better world. Silencing people for x, y or z does not move us forward. It is so easy to label x as "bad" or "nazi" or "hitler" and you close off actual, real, legit discussion.

F-Dord's team just wants good open source apps. Allow reproducible builds and that's their ideology. That's it.
