FOSS SJW Blacklist Anonymous 09/22/2019 (Sun) 07:25:12 No.219
The recent shitstorm about Stallman revealed more bad actors within the Linux/FOSS community and as developers and users we should fight to regain the civilization we built with our blood and tears from the encroachment of destructive "cancel culture" madmen.

We need to start by making of list of organizations and projects that are thoroughly infested with the rot. Avoid contributing effort and support to them and eventually they will crumble inwards as internecine group politics is no replacement for hard technical knowhow.

I'll start by listing a few:

Red Hat/IBM (Fedora, Centos)
Debian
Ubuntu
GNOME
PulseAudio (Red Hat/IBM)
SystemD (Red Hat/IBM)
LibreOffice
Mozilla
>>219
Sorry, I'm no Linux wizard and until there is a community with better support for the newb, I'll continue to use Ubuntu. I don't like either Canonical's botnet or their internal poz, but the user community is hard to beat.
>>220
manjaro just works
>>219
Wouldn't it be easier to list the ones that aren't infested? I think it'd be a much smaller list.
>>221
i thought Arch relies on systemDicks anon.
>The recent shitstorm about Stallman
Can someone catch me up?
>>228
we have a thread about it
>>69
>implying you contribute to anything
>>234
shilling is a valid contribution desu
>>220
I unironically like gentoo and the gentoo forums. They've never steered me wrong.
I'd like to add that as much as I avoid redhat and freedesktop garbage, I've been unable to avoid dbus. Maybe if my C-fu was better I could patch it out of the software I use that needs it, but alas, I cannot.
What was the gang of loonies called that for example wants to rename gimp because of "ableism"?
>>238
Yes, very good community. But even more inexperienced users don't have to resort to Ubuntu, like Manjaro.
>>280
>like Manjaro.
Damn. I mean "They could use something like Manjaro instead."
>>219
>libreoffice
Is there something I should be aware of other than them fudging that mascot contest?
>>307
It requires dbus

Lists may be slightly outdated, so be wary.

>It requires dbus

sudo emerge =x11-misc/xdg-utils-1.1.1-r1 # Thank Aaron Bauman for forcing dbus in 1.1.3-r1

Pretty much Sojucs invaded years ago.

>Ubuntu
I have no idea.

>GNOME
https://blog.halon.org.uk/2019/09/gnome-foundation-relationship-gnu-fsf/
Anyway gnome is MS controlled.

>PulseAudio (Red Hat/IBM)
>SystemD (Red Hat/IBM)
Poetering puppet.

>LibreOffice
As far as I know the only stupid they did was the libbie mascot fiasco.

>Mozilla
Google puppet.

A good thing that RMS is still head of the GNU project which is separated from the FSF board.

Redhat/IBM. Gnome and all those colored hair faggots on twitter who can't distinguish a chick from a rooster die in the Jihad that is coming.

Other than Libreofficeas far as i know, every project/company was pozzed to begin with.
>Avoid contributing effort and support to them and eventually they will crumble inwards as internecine group politics is no replacement for hard technical knowhow.
5-10 anons that lurk and post here wouldn't contribute to those any projects anyway. Time is better spent on contributing to unpozzed projects and discussing.

Thanks for the link fren.

I've read it and as usual it's another person did not check anything.
I've posted in the comments to see if it helps a bit.
>>324
> I fundamentally disagree with Michael here, and like to point out (though its obvious), that his point of view is not shared nor endorsed by The Document Foundation, albeit aggregated on their planet.
Can these sort of people stop being so worried about sojuc mentality? The only reason for why sojucs have power is because they acknowledge they can have power on them.

Tbh LibreOffice should be re-written in C.

why manjaro? it has opt-out non-free kernel
i see devuan or guix as more suitable choices

They really are a plague.
>>219
You can add the people on this list https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2019/joint-statement-on-the-gnu-project/
You'll either see that these people are either complete cucks and for those who aren't the just don't know anything about what happened.
>>436
>They really are a plague.
It's a joke that RMS made.
>>435
>FSF considering dropping GNU.
It doesn't even say that.
It's just posting that they want to know what people who think they are concerned in the community thinks about this.
Of course by coincidence this >>438 happened.

I don't want to go full alex johns on this but between the obvious slander the press did. Foundations like gnome or companies like redhat who knowingly or unknowingly repeating and amplifying this and now distributions and maintainers (who are mostly obvious social justice people) who are asking for RMS's departure I think this isn't a coincidence.
>>438
>Matt Lee (GNU Social)
That guy abandoned Gnu social and only posts on Twitter. He can't even respect his own principals.

- Void linux This distro is also posed, the main maintainer is a cuck. The discussion on the screenshots took place on this thread if I remember correctly: https://www.reddit.com/r/voidlinux/comments/dtit2e/peer_into_the_void_interview_with_void_linuxs/ - i3wm Cucked as well. Look up their CoC: https://i3wm.org/conduct - Hyperbola Linux Completely soyed. They call their code of conduct "social contract". Item 10 tells everything you need to know: https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?id=en:main:social_contract&redirect=1 - FreeBSD One of the items on their CoC prohibits "virtual hugs" from being sent... whatever that means. The rest is no better: https://www.freebsd.org/internal/code-of-conduct.html

>>1253 Not using systemd does not automatically makes a project trustworthy.
>>1255 You're right. One distro forces glownigger software and the other has a CoC. Truly there's nobody to trust. Thanks faggot.
>>1256 There are plenty of projetcs to trust, openbsd is a clear example of that. You are overreacting.
>>1257 BSD is a cuck license therefore Theo is a cuck therefore openbsd is pozzed. Thanks for playing.

>>1467 >Git is pozzed any alternatives?
>>1482 That builds on Git, retard.
The Linux kernel itself is pozzed, so it doesn't make sense to me why would you fags care about other components being pozzed, at this point? Use whatever works for you, and respects your beliefs/philosophy. GNU/Linux wouldn't get even close to it's current state without big tech giants, it's the truth, like it or not. (You) don't even know whether some pajeet or nigger touched your favorite programs code, before it adapted CoC or became political.
>>1479 Time to fork, and make git-minus-niggers, just keep an up-to-date copy without the code of conduct.

>>1237 >Duncan Overbruck You missed an opportunity to call him Duncan Overcuck. Doesn't look like he's the main maintainer either and the guy he's arguing with in that screencap looks like an idiot too, but to be fair he is a redditor. This brings me to something that really, really bugs me: anons rolling over and abandoning anything pozzed fags get a foothold in. Remember how anons actually took Pepe back from the normalfags for a little while? You know how animefags and vidyafags are still actively fighting against localization? Why should computer programs, linux distros, and their communities be any different? Sometimes it feels like you passive faggots flat out give your enemies anything they want because they put in a tiny bit of effort and gain the smallest foothold in it, so you write it off as a lost cause and let them fully take it over.
>>2423 I like the way you think anon. Men who are /tech/nicians should fight to keep trannycoders and other degenerates out of our turf.
Freebsd needs to be on the list
>>2426 >out of our turf. And that's where the problem lies. I'd be surprised if the average /tech/ anon is a better coder than most of the sjws in tech. Most of /tech/ is focused on using the "correct" software and avoiding "botnet". That doesn't translate to being able to write good software or contribute to bigger projects. Not to mention with anime and vidya people can't as readily contribute to projects. It's mainly about consumption. At the very least there's an economic incentive to make games for an audience that will buy it. With FOSS, and even tech companies in general, there's less of an incentive to keep that kind of stuff out of it. Not to mention /tech/ overplays how incompetent a lot of sjws are in tech. With anime it's because the companies audience are from japan. With video games, /v/ isn't the audience of any video game company. and it shows.
>>2432 Frankly competency isn't the issue for me, the absolute corruption individuals like trannycoders or women bring to development teams. They are absolute toxic poison and if their presence isn't openly opposed then soon as a normal man you will soon be forced to either flee the project or bend over for them.
>>1479 cvs tbh or perhaps fossil or mercurial, though, idk if they are CoCked, too >>1516 im glad i never used such bloat. ksh or plain zsh with completion is superior >>2423 >>2433 (checked) these
>We need to start by making of list... Fuck off, any explicit list will be derailed by giganiggers trying to rally a personal army against their enemy. Catalogue specific acts of SJW cancer, so anons can decide by themselves what is bad enough to avoid and what they're avoiding exactly.
>>2435 fuck off, that's too fucking reasonable.
>>219 Please add >>2435 to the list.
>>1489 >GNU/Linux wouldn't get even close to it's current state without big tech giants Exactly! Look at what the damage they've done.
>>1458 That, and Unity was barely-usable clusterfuck made by Apple fanboys. I switched to Xubuntu then and there. More to the point, it was suddenly dropped in as the primary environment, not introduced as an option. This says something too. Mac was obviously intended for those with longing for Big Brother who "knows better". Being developers gave them a delusion that they became little Big Brothers too, maybe? >>1407 It's not rotten through yet (for one, no snide shits in support yet, like it was in Mozilla, those who sit on bug reports are cool people), but you see what the management is, and fish rots from the head down, so... matter of time.
>>219 >The pot calling the kettle back. Shame for sure.
