Opinion: Coffee houses who want to attract productive customers ought not to play music with electronic snare drums, ear-raking autotuned singing, or screeching.

Yes, looking at images of yourself as an old person is amusing, but FaceApp is yet another case of SaaSS (Service as a Software Substitute) that poses a major privacy threat. Don't use it! https://u.fsf.org/2vp

@fsf uh, bad, new GNU looks like it's on sedatives.

I'm not sure which is more tiring:

1. Companies (people) not respecting other people's data and confirming with the user that data collection and processing is alright.

2. People who didn't read the EULA and complain about the above despite agreeing to data collection.

For the record, my profile pic is my own artwork run through a few layers of inception on deepdreamgenerator.com/


Understandable. Even Lunduke can't reverse the desecration of our common societal rules and values, and mend the bitter gap between isolated modern people.

Thanks again for the reply. We all rely on your optimism and continued interest in libre stuff to keep us coming back to our virtuous free software.


Holy crap! Didn't expect a reply from one of my personal heroes.

Non-excellence usually has an origin.

While it isn't your problem to resolve their issue, and blocking is one solution (you don't owe anybody your time/thought,) I find most people who aren't being excellent are acting on behalf of some inner demon; an unresolved dispute, cognitive dissonance, etc.

While it takes a bit more effort, firing back a simple and genuine 'why?' can often have cascading positive effects.

@lunduke while blocking is a temporary reprieve from differing opinions, the only true progress blocking leads to is strengthening the walls of an echo chamber.

That said, I think non-opinions from corps and advertisements, as they do not contribute to public discourse, should be banned by default and opt-in via a micropayment to the user.
