Matthew J Garrett

Category:Microsoft Category:GNU/Linux

As shameless proponent of Microsoft, UEFI 'secure' boot (i.e. Microsoft monopoly) and a serial defamer of innocent people (including Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman) Mr. Garrett earned himself a lot of attention. He is part of Free Software-Hostile Militants|a militant online collective that leverages Tor to do illegal things and he also spent years stalking the Techrights IRC network to harass people and promote terrible drugs.


Mr. Garrett uses sock-puppets (disposable accounts) to seed discord and abuse networks of communication. We've documented such schizophrenic and vandalistic behaviour.
