my favorite fedi genre

@trickster This is like that holocaust quote I really like.

"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

@trickster it's a really neat thing to me when established software like notepad++ makes statements like these, because it seems like predominantly I see existing software being shitheads or just keeping a "neutral stance" and having people start new projects because of that
@trickster it's definitely noteworthy imo when an old, well known and established piece of software is willing to make a statement like this

@trickster it’s a calculated risk to take a stance on politics as a software company, you have to decide which customers you’re willing to lose.

@catgirl @trickster I agree 'cept on thing - commercial companies generally attempt to avoid talking about SOFTWARE !!

Why open&free needs no capital marketing (aka marx's industrial propaganda) nor social control (which we apparently had in #RMS)

@trickster a thousand spam issues on their issue tracker implies someone took notice

@ben @trickster im looking through them right now
these people have issues tbh

@ben @trickster they act like their government is held together with toothpicks and they need to defend it at all costs

@reitrace @ben @trickster >people
they're probably bots. no way hundreds of chineses would gang up over /that/

@trickster its sad how much hes being attacked on github by chinese accounts though

Literally nobody will give two shits when I'm oppressed. I know this because I've been oppressed, and nobody cared.

Given that, I've got shit to do.
