-TechrightsBN/#boycottnovell-@lxoliva@pod.libreplanetbr.org reshared: Over the years I've managed to convince a number of journalists to say and write #gnu #linux instead of just "Linux"; it's doable if we all do/did the same.

schestowitzsandler attacked stallman at libreplanet as well as being with sfc. i never went to libreplanet because i thought its code of conduct was offensive. if id thought it would be used against stallman one day, i would have spoken out against it a lot more, years earlier. but its a significant part of the reason i never went, i just didnt approve.Oct 25 08:19

schestowitzsandler is not. i thought she was on there, because deb nicholson is on there, and i was so surprised by that that i tried to guess why and determined (it has to be to show support to a friend instead.) i thought of sandler, but that was in error. ill check it next time before i go “quoting” it. its not the sort of error i like to make.Oct 25 08:39
