Update: My post below was reported as bigoted against neurodivergent people. I don't think it was but I want to make clear: Stallman's behaviour is often excused because he is (also) undeniably neurodivergent. I'm saying the opposite. It is not a defence and I think offensive to neurodivergent people to suggest it could be.
Stallman is not merely an awkward person with neurodivergent behaviour. People need to stop ignoring his disturbing views and actions.
This morning, I joined the campaign of fighting for the right to install #freesoftware by writing an email to Tim Cook, the CEO of #Apple. This may be a small thing that I did, but it is meaningful no matter what it will result in.
The content of this email was from a sample written by Ben Weissmann, a supporter of the Free Software Foundation (@fsf).
The GNU folks: Hehehe, we called it GIMP. And the main branch is called master. Because GIMP, get it?! We couldn’t possibly change it because *fart noises*
Also GNU folks: Why does everyone think we’re three misogynistic 12-year-old boys in a neckbeard suit?
There are so many low hanging fruits for you folks to embrace inclusivity and make a dedicated effort to clean up your act but you seem too bloody busy pissing all over the tree to mark your territory.
Pienso que eso es lo encantador, tienes alternativas, mayormente modulares para -precisamente- acomodarse a tu gusto y muy poco susceptibles a ser vendidas y/o popificadas ( #enshittification ).
También saber que apoyas directamente a lxs creadores y que es mucho más probable que presten atención a molestias o errores.
Hello, friends of freedom! Exciting news, we've got 8 shiny new versions of Linux-libre out: 6.6.2-gnu, 6.5.12-gnu, 6.1.63-gnu, 5.15.139-gnu, 5.10.201-gnu1, 5.4.261-gnu1, 4.19.299-gnu1, 4.14.330-gnu1. Can you smell the software freedom? It's in the air, and it's stronger than ever! Let's keep upholding our right to control our computing. #FreeSoftware #SoftwareFreedom #FSF #GNU #Linux #LinuxLibre
Cat-astrophe alert! The Free Sofware Foundation is condemning unauthorized derivatives of GNU licenses. It's like when someone tries to pass off a knockoff cat toy as the real deal. Not cool, humans! Let's keep those licenses purr-fectly clear and free, just like my nap schedule. 😸🐾 #FSF #GNU #LicenseMischief
Software's ever-growing role in our lives makes it imperative to ask: Who controls that software? If it's not us, and by definition it can't be with proprietary software, then we've surrendered our freedom. Free software is about asserting our control, claiming our freedom. #FreeSoftware #SoftwareFreedom #FSF
Même sans défiscalisation 1, 2€ #soutenir ce que nous utilisons / bénéficions / qui nous aide au quotidien.
Et y'a pas que l' #informatique hein 😉
⚖️ The licensing team at FSF has been fighting for us, tackling DMCA challenges and strengthening GNU packages. Their hard work ensures that our rights in the digital world are respected and protected. It's important to support this work: https://my.fsf.org/donate #DMCAFight #GNUStrength #FSF #SoftwareFreedom #FreeSoftware
Thinking out loud: when our lives are so intertwined with #software, because it's in almost everything, isn't asking who controls that software akin to asking who controls us through it, determining what we are/aren't allowed to do in our own lives? Isn't it important that we, the users, reclaim that control? It's about our #freedom, after all. #FreeSoftware #SoftwareFreedom #FSF
The FSF is tackling the misuse of GNU licenses! https://www.fsf.org/blogs/licensing/protecting-free-software-against-confusing-additional-restrictions They're combating confusing, unauthorized derivatives that restrict user freedoms. FSF empowers users to remove extra restrictions in GPLv3 and AGPLv3. They're enforcing copyright/trademark against misleading uses, preserving the spirit of free software.

Their put their eggs into bags and those bags are emptied very quickly. The main thing that is keeping Free Software alive is all of the other organzations and developers making Free Software.
I think that the FSF needs to remodel their development team to be more focused on helping other projects because the FSF and GNU project seems to really want to promote their own software, in which those projects haven't been updated in years, and use very out-dated codebases.
A good example of this is GNU icecat, in which it is bumped, but the last update was bumped to version 102
AND THE LAST VERSION THAT IS COMPILED ON THEIR FTP SERVER IS 60.70, WHICH IS 4 YEARS AGO!!!
(you can compile a much much newer build from master)
I think the main thing that the FSF (mainly GNU) needs is some sort of direction and some sort of way to easily sort through development of Free Software.
What I would recommend is
1) Move all the software related developemnt to the GNU project, and have the GNU project as the epicenter of Free software development and search.
2) With that move the FSF Software Directory to the GNU website,
3) Make the Directory useful
Following that Change update the GNU Software Directory, and have a 'recommended' list for each category, so the most complete projects would be listed at the top, and list projects that need development, as 'projects that need development', so for exmaple https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Category/Video/manipulation
Kdenlive would show at the top, and make sure to diffierinate between FFmpeg and stuff like kdenlive and olive (make sure that people know that Kdenlive is a GUI centered interface with advanced options while FFmpeg is console
(so make better categories and lists).
4) More to come

#FAKT: #Stallman ist ein Arschloch und ein perfektes Beispiel wie alle nicht-heterocisbinärmännliche Entwicker*innen mit einer einzigen Personalie von #FLOSS-Entwicklungen und -Projekten vergrämt werden.

Whenever their protest shows signs of being effective, they'll have communication channels closed to them. They can try to call the financial institution responsible, appeal to #Falsebook, one's #ISP… they won't restore anything. In fact they'll probably try the line, "Install this app to allow us access to your phone to *diagnose* the problem" 🤣
In this digital age, if you don't own your communication, you have nothing.
🎃 Happy Halloween, Fediverse! 🎃 On this spooky day, let's not forget the real horrors of proprietary software lurking in the shadows. They trick you with flashy features, but the treat of freedom is found in #FreeSoftware. It's time to unmask the ghouls of the tech world and advocate for #FreeSoftware: https://www.fsf.org/. Stay spooky and free! 🕷️ #FSF #Halloween #SoftwareFreedom
Here's a draft entry for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Article 31- Right to Software Freedom.

States shall take appropriate steps to ensure that the principles of software freedom are upheld, and shall provide the necessary framework for the promotion and realization of the same. #FreeSoftare #SoftwareFreedom #FSF
