### who-hates-our-freedom-the-most other articles: => the-delusion-of-a-gnu-linux-community.html the-delusion-of-a-gnu-linux-community *originally posted:* jun 2021 although the title of this post is "haha, only serious" i dont think you can necessarily determine who hates freedom the most from a single "metric". we have the information we have, we certainly have lots of information that exists outside of this letter as well, but the stallman backstabbing letter is certainly a good opportunity to get a quick-and-dirty measure of who despises user freedom and free speech. the letter is based on lies, and probably the quickest way to gain an appreciation how much the stallman cancellers are lying to you (or how much theyre getting suckered and dont want to fix their terrible mistake) is to go to the stallman support website: => https://stallmansupport.org/ ^ THESE people at least, care about truth and free speech. who are the shills, the nazis and the crybully fascists we can never trust or count on again? alright, maybe you dont despise them the way i do. but ive been watching these traitors stab our movement (and us) in the back for years. i personally want to get as far away from these people and their corporate fascist garbage as possible: => https://wrongwithfreesw.neocities.org/a-forced-community-is-like-a-forced-marriage.html rms-open-letter.github.io... "An open letter to remove Richard M. Stallman from all leadership positions" lovely. how could you put your name to this rubbish, david? i thought you were decent. obviously at the top there are horrors of humanity like the gnome foundation, former fsf traitors, someone from the debian technical committee (no surprise there, the debian technical committee are traitors to the entire human race) linked to osi! stay classy open source, more osi, the software fuckery con, more gnome foundation, more debian, more osi and fsf backstabbers, and one former "pirate" who is such an awful piece of nazi german eurotrash im withdrawing all my support and starting a NINJA party instead! eric schultz is particularly notable-- why? the entire anti-stallman coup STARTED at NON-FREEPLANET in 2018, and schultz was one of the ringleaders. he was also connected (organisationally) to other original coup-starters from all the back to the libreplanet incident. these people are pathological liars and libreplanet is anti-freedom. libreplanet is even more anti-fsf than i am. STOP FUNDING THIS SHIT. it is to the fsf what the linux foundation is to the kernel. what the actual fuck, people? more gnome foundation osi stuff-- WAIT, we are still at the TOP OF THE PAGE! we havent even gotten to the actual petition yet, just the people who started it! MORE DEBIBM AND OSI. lets be clear about this, we are talking about: * debian AND gnome at once. (same person) * debian AND osi at once. * gnome AND debian at once (yes, thats TWICE now) * gnome AND osi at once. * debian AND osi again! of course SO FAR we are talking about the GNOME FOUNDATION. thats important, because ron spun this bullshit narrative that it was just the foundation-- not gnome itself. we will get to that. oh, and apache. but what do apache and osi have in common? per what muckrights (ie ron) says, thats two instances of microsoft. when someone says "apache", they might as well be saying "microsoft". did microsoft leave? did the microsoft "fauxpen source" culture leave with them? when someone says "osi", they might as well be saying "microsoft". when someone says "linux foundation"... dont just BELIEVE ME, go look this stuff up! organisations... hmm. "commitchange"-- well thats no surprise. commitchange was the organisation i was just talking about, with eric shultz and that other one who signed the ORIGINAL anti-stallman petition, kicking off the coup in late 2018: https://wwahammy.com/on-safety-at-libreplanet/ thats a load of balls, that is. ^ "creative commons"-- well, they sold out ages ago. im sad that mike linksvayer has turned traitor, but the last good idea creative commons had was his, and they fucked it up. i LOVE lawrence lessig, hes one of the greatest men that ever lived. but creative commons is a worthless pile of shit-- yes, i still use a couple of their licenses. im a big fan of cc0. of all the sheer fucking hyprocrisy, your founder literally (and proudly-- and honestly and straightforwardly) said he stole stallmans ideas to create your organisation. fuck creative commons. "exherbo linux"-- well, one more reason to ditch penguinshit. "framasoft"-- theyre probably a scam anyway. "freedom of the press foundation"-- co-founded by the late john perry barlow. guessing the sold-out eff (also co-founded by barlow) put them up to this. barlow and stallman were both inducted into the internet hall of fame. "gnome foundation"-- basically microsoft... "gnu mailman", "gnu radio"-- gnu radio should have been kicked out of gnu anyway, theyre part of the april coup that muckrights didnt bother telling people about because i got the story first, and ron is a lying shit. "midnightbsd"-- which i was already avoiding, because shithub. "mozilla"-- not a real browser anymore, complete bullshit that spies on users. includes/included microsoft people on its board, ron sez. "ethical source"-- rofl, the single most ridiculous organisation even TANGENTIAL to open source, because its not even "free" enough to be called "open"! "ethical source" is a fucking farce. "riseup"-- fake left shitfucks. i used to be a member of riseup, ages ago, when they seemed legit. (im not sure they havent simply fallen from what they once where. the fsf certainly has). "outreachy"-- gnome scamming feminists for money. "x.org"-- what do they even do? the last time these people put out anything, scientists still believed in "luminiferous aether". i use xenocara. fuck wayland, fuck these people too. still disappointing. "freedos"-- NOT EVEN FREE SOFTWARE! nope, sorry! fuck freedos. i was a fan once, i tried it when it was in alpha. hardenedbsd, tor-- both shithub. WILL NOT FUND! ron sez tor took bribes from ddg (which is basically microsoft at this point). fuck both of them. so lets clear the org section from the list, keep the traitorous fuckers at the top, and get on with this. but just so you know, they have a fucking disclaimer that says: "For individual signatures, institutional affiliation is provided for identification purposes only and does not constitute endorsement." DO NOT GIVE A FUCK! this still demonstrates how full of traitors these organisations are. its not as if we cannot find other organisational-level problems from these groups that fuck users and shill for corporations. it may not be your fault that theres a coup, but if your org is taken over i hardly want to give you money to fuck us with, yeah? also the MAIN REASON im doing this is that ron pretended it was mostly the gnome foundation. ron is utterly full of shit though. the first thing we do is search for lines with "(" or ")": now we have 1288 lines-- about a 1/3 of the people on the list, maybe slightly more, have a parenthesis after their name) we could have done this first, but now we change the "(" to "\n(" instead. now we have 1303 lines. an extra 15? thats fun. some people put more than one set of parentheses on their line. we could worry about those, but they shouldnt affect our results. heres an example of what happened there: (DasGeek) (Host of Destination Linux, Partner of Destination Linux, LLC.) that used to be on a single line. "sorry" ryan, i dont know wtf "destination linux" is, but i sure dont fucking care now. the next thing we do is filter out parentheses entirely. we probably could have done this before, but so far ive been doing this in an editor and like to look at the results each step of the way. how else would i know that some people had two sets of parentheses on one line? not that its necessarily that relevant. now we deal with commas. lets deal with properly formatted ones first-- ones that have a space after. we change all isntances of ", " to "\n"... unfortunately we just removed our ability to notice things like this: Thorsten Behrens (director, The Document Foundation) oh, youre the director? well, fuck the document foundation. i stopped used libreoffice and openoffice when i switched to bsd because it wasnt a priority, and i open odf documemnts by unzipping them. youre going to be taken over by gnome and collabora scumbags anyway im sure, so much for open documents i guess. the chief gnewsance uses latex, so he wont care. lets take a moment i guess to single out directors from this fucking list, yeah? Former member of the FSF board of directors Open Source Initiative Director Open Source Initiative Director GNOME Foundation Executive Director (we all know who that is-- fuck you, neil, youve been part of this coup since... https://wwahammy.com/on-safety-at-libreplanet/ OH! since 2018 as well!) Former Apache Software Foundation Director) Former Director of the Open Source Initiative and the GNOME Foundation Former Director of the Open Source Initiative former member, X.Org Foundation Board of Directors Executive Director, Progressive Technology Project GNOME Foundation Board of Directors former Noisebridge director Former director, GNOME Foundation Former director / president, GNOME Foundation former the Document Foundation director Former GNOME Foundation Director Director, R&D, Virtual Adept Networks Former GNOME Foundation director Python Software Foundation Director Board of Directors, the Document Foundation Founder/Executive Director, Root Access Hackerspace former member of the SPI Inc board of directors Project Jupyter co-founder and co-director Director of Developer Relations at MeiliSearch Battle For Wesnoth Project developer and Board of Directors OSI Director Aspiration Board of Directors PIMS Director former GNOME Foundation director Fellow and Director, Python Software Foundation; former Director, Django Software Foundation UBports Foundation Board of Directors Python Software Foundation Director/Fellow former GNOME Foundation director PyCon AU 2020 conference director UBports Foundation founder, Lead Developer and Board of Directors, Ubuntu Member (this one is vague-- lead developer and board of directors for ubports foundation or ubuntu? probably ubports) former Director, Software Freedom Conservancy former director & past chair, Python Software Foundation Director, Metropolitan New York Library Council (this one doesnt surprise me, a lot of libraries are introducing drm in ebooks and stallman is probably critical of them-- librarians that support drm are turning their backs on their mission and the public good!) Director of DNS Engineering @ ISC CTO and Creative Director, Quin Open Source Initiative Director Former Director of the Open Source Initiative Director at Ruby Central GNOME Foundation director (just how many directors does the gnome foundation have?) co-director of Framasoft (thanks, arsehole!) GlobaLeaks Outreach Director director, The Document Foundation Open Source Initiative Director (how many directors does osi have?) founder and acting director of Kludge Cyber Systems (great name for a shit company) Directory Server (that shouldnt be listed here) former Board Director of PSF lets tally these directors up shall we? we can do this manually: NINE gnome foundation directors and former directors, PLUS one from the GNOME Foundation Board incidentally if youre a box of tissue and would like to apply for a brief position at the gnome foundation, i think neil is getting tired of being a shill for giafam. seriously, how much more damage can he do to free software? the corporate mothership is sure to call him home soon, anybody wanna help gnome fight against our freedom? asking for a friend! EIGHT osi directors! only FOUR python software foundation (so, basically microsoft) directors, plus the board director. dont worry, with all the moves to shithub your micromasters are sure to show appreciation. TWO document foundation (gnome basically) directors, plus one board member only one from apache (aka microsoft? or former microsoft?) well, its not like you people actually do anything anymore. r&d is just a department, lets count the fsf board, xorg foundation board, spi inc board, battle for wesnoth board, ubports foundation board (maybe twice, maybe its the same guy) "CO-director" at Project Jupyter-- guess they were inspired by the fsfs two vice presidents... "development relations" at "meilisearch" (did i spell it right?) and i guess stallman made an enemy of some sort at isc engineering, thats too bad. "creative director" and cto of "quin" as well. and then we have the directors and/or former directors of: Progressive Technology Project, Noisebridge, Root Access Hackerspace, PIMS, Django Software Foundation, PyCon AU 2020 conference, Software Freedom Conservancy, Metropolitan New York Library Council, Ruby Central, GlobaLeaks Outreach, Kludge Cyber Systems... now what about the rest of this thing? PLEASE NOTE, we are not removing the above directors from the list, we are counting them also in the following tally. the next thing we want to do is remove as many "@" as possible, so we first look at the whole list of lines with @ on them... apart from the isc person, the only "@" lines of interest are: Founder of @MadeByThePinsHub Sr. Architect and WIT ADVOCATE @SUSE Lead Engineer at @Allstate @edu4rdshl - BlackArch Linux and Nspawn.org developer @_stultus | Swathanthra Malayalam Computing Founder @TrainingCloudHQ Enterprise Cloud Products @ SUSE so we remove all the lines with @ now (we already changed commas to newlines, so the important stuff doesnt have "@" in it...) doing a search for ";" we see we can treat it the same way, changing all "; " to "\n"... now lets save this text and pipe it to tr A-Z a-z, in fact lets pipe that through sort as well. now lets start looking for names we recognise... "associate" okay, lets grep for that: 30 associate members, half of which said "former". fwiw, i am also a former fsf member. though a pro-stallman one. "mozilla" lets search: 35 fuckers from mozilla. thanks, arseholes! some are combined with things like llvm or outreachy, so lets just remove the ones that only say mozilla and keep searching. lets do outreachy next! only THREE? bullshit detector ping! lets check the website again... okay, only three. but that includes outreachy signing as the org itself, so: 3 outreachy (including the org signing as itself) lets do llvm now: 3 llvm fedora? this should be a naughty one... 47 fedora! people at practically every level. i really never liked fedora, in all the years i used gnu/linux. the exception was sugar-on-a-stick, of course. alright, lets do "gnome foundation", its time! 27! lets go "gnome" INCLUDING "gnome foundation" now: 72! wow! wait: 72 - 27 = 45, so: 72 gnome, (27 gnome foundation, 45 NOT gnome foundation) 4 ansible 11 apache including 2 asf people (oh i didnt count "asf" properly, sorry-- maybe worth going back to check but asf is rubbish anyway) 12 arch linux (including 3 devs?) 4 centos (including 1 board member) 4 chaos computer club (this makes me sad) 6 civicrm 46 collabora (not surprising, fuck collabora) lets do fsfe specially: contributor to fsfe former fsfe member former fsfe staff former fsfe supporter fsfe fsfe member fsfe supporter fsfe supporter fsfe supporter ubuntu community member and former fsfe fellow 10 fsfe (they were a significant part of the coup already, 10 underrepresents them here) 3 django 3 django foundation (including the founder) 4 djangocon 15 drupal, various levels (i know if we were fair we would count 10 for django, so noted here) 6 eff including 2 members 6 exherbo linux how can we count fsf? former fsf employee and union representative former fsf hpp committee member former fsf intern former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member former fsf member and one of the top referrers former fsf savannah administrator former fsf staff former fsf staff former fsf staff former fsf staff former fsf staff and fsf member former fsf staff and member former fsf staff member former fsf staffer former fsf volunteer former gpl compliance engineer at fsf former member of the fsf board of directors fsf member fsf member fsf member fsf member fsf member since 2009 going to do it like this: former fsf employee and union representative former fsf hpp committee member former fsf intern former fsf savannah administrator former fsf staff former fsf staff former fsf staff former fsf staff former fsf staff and fsf member former fsf staff and member former fsf staff member former fsf staffer former fsf volunteer former gpl compliance engineer at fsf former member of the fsf board of directors 15 fsf (this is reasonably representative imo) how about gnu? ex-gnu ex-gnunet developer former chief gnu webmaster former contributor gnu image manipulation program and gnu parted former developer for gnu social and parabola gnu/linux former gnu chief webmaster former gnu contributor former gnu guile contributor former gnu guix contributor former gnu octave contributor former gnu radio lead former gnu radio maintainer former gnu webmaster former member of the gnu project formerly of gnupg gnu assembly member (part of the coup, getting counted) gnu contributor gnu guile/guix contributor gnu guix gnu guix gnu guix contributor gnu libc maintainer gnu maintainer gnu nano gnu octave maintainer gnu radio board member gnu radio general assembly member gnu radio president gnustep contributor 29 gnu 4 x.org 33 ubuntu (you would expect more) 3 wordpress, one automattic (so 4, really) very few wikipedians (stallman basically is the reason wikipedia exists, though aaron swartz probably deserves a mention here) 3 mediawiki 5 wikimedia (not to be confused with mediawiki) 4 void linux (github) 2 vlc developers lets do universities: 1 berkman klein center at harvard university 1 cologne university of applied sciences 1 northwestern state university 1 norwich university 1 paris-saclay university 1 purdue university 1 "sr devops" engineer for saclab at texas a&m university (does anybody smell a sponsor? "Texas A&M University Teams with IBM Corporation..." oh, okay; kind of an old story though? when did they start using that stupid "devops" marketing term? id rather serve ice cream for a living than say "devops" all fucking day, no matter what it pays) 1 stony brook university 1 university college of london 1 university of california san diego 1 university of central florida 1 university of chicago 1 university of colorado boulder 1 university of illinois 2 university of oxford 1 waikato university 1 imperial college london 3 uc 4 tor project 14 suse (about 14 opensuse too, didnt bother counting these properly-- 28 whatever) 14 opensuse (about 14 suse too, didnt bother counting these properly-- 28 whatever) 19 red hat 5 seagl 7 project jupyter 5 document foundation 17 (ish) python software foundation 8 freebsd 5 netbsd 1 midnightbsd (including as org) 1 openbsd developer, who is also a sudo maintainer 12 nixos 4 freenode 5 node.js 3 guix 2 oftc (which ron will probably use to downplay something, like with the gnu watch states he pretended to have something to do with) 4 microsoft (actual microsoft) 19 kubernetes 13 igalia 3 openwrt 3 postgresql 17 kde 3 mageia (including a board member) 8 linux kernel 7 gstreamer what about debian? 14 "debian" 1 "debian account manager" 66 "debian developer" (6 of which are former) 6 "debian maintainer" 2 "former debian technical committee chair" 4 "former debian technical committee member" 9 "former debian project leader" including one "former director of the open source initiative" 2 "member of the debian technical committee" 3 "debian technical committee member" 1 "debian project leader" ``` echo $((14+1+66+6+2+4+9+2+3+1)) 108 ``` so lets rank which groups hate OUR freedom the most, shall we? 108 debian 72 gnome, (27 gnome foundation, 45 NOT gnome foundation) 47 fedora people at practically every level. 46 collabora (not surprising, fuck collabora) 35 fuckers from mozilla. thanks, arseholes! 33 ubuntu (you would expect more) 30 associate members, half of which said "former" 29 gnu 19 red hat 19 kubernetes 17 kde 17 (ish) python software foundation 15 fsf (this is reasonably representative imo) 15 drupal, various levels (i know if we were fair we would count 10 for django, so noted here) 14 suse (about 14 opensuse too, didnt bother counting these properly-- 28 whatever) 14 opensuse (about 14 suse too, didnt bother counting these properly-- 28 whatever) 13 igalia 12 nixos 12 arch linux (including 3 devs?) 11 apache including 2 asf people (oh i didnt count "asf" properly, sorry-- maybe worth going back to check but asf is rubbish anyway) 10 fsfe (they were a significant part of the coup already, 10 underrepresents them here) 8 linux kernel 8 freebsd 7 project jupyter 7 gstreamer 6 exherbo linux 6 eff including 2 members 6 civicrm 5 wikimedia (not to be confused with mediawiki) 5 seagl 5 node.js 5 netbsd 5 document foundation 4 x.org 4 void linux (github) 4 tor project 4 microsoft (actual microsoft) 4 freenode 4 djangocon 4 chaos computer club (this makes me sad) 4 centos (including 1 board member) 4 ansible obviously, microsoft hates your freedom more than debian. but whether gnome hates your freedom more than debian is difficult to guess! again, this is just one metric. but ron is so ridiculously loyal to debian, it should be amusing to see the way he spins this. => https://muckrights-sans-merde.neocities.org
