@fribbledom The term "open source" was coined in order to refer to freely licensed software while explicitly avoiding the ethical and social issues of user freedom. If you're talking about freedom then you're explicitly outside the realm of "open source" and you're in the realm of "free software".
See my profile, I'm well aware of the distinction. But I'm afraid we're operating on a rather abstract semantic level here. Looking at all the other reactions here, most everyone seemed to understood perfectly well what I was talking about.
Seeing how the term “free software” is also prone to misinterpretation, I actually still prefer "open source" or at least "foss". Richard Stallman might disapprove, but that's something I can happily live with 😂
@fribbledom Is the approval of others something you ordinarily worry about?
Depends on the situation and who the others are.
