It only takes a few bad apples to spoil the whole lot.

I don't blame you for thinking that personally, I would have thought so too...

I think what's happening here is part of the "larger campaign", a "new world order" if you will. And it looks like FSF has been infected with the same "virus", I would call this "virus" "human malware". It seems to me this "larger campaign" is basically where it's not about "free software" (or whatever the original goals were) anymore, it's basically a "political agenda", think the "#MeToo" movement... In other words, it's about being "politically correct" and taking the "right political position". So if you're not "outraged" about "guilt by association", then you're someone who is on the wrong side of the "political fence", and you're "one of the abusers", therefore, you supposedly "support" the abuse of women etc.

It's fairly obvious to me what's really going on here, and it's sad the same "virus" that's infected society has found it's way to the FSF. You've really gotta ask yourself; who's next?

It's a sad day alright...

Closing this thread for what I hope are obvious reasons. A reminder that the main focus of LQ is the technical fora. If threads in General continue to spiral out of control, it's possible we'll need to evaluate temporarily close the forum to new posts.
