Debian Statement regarding freenode takeover
reddit.com/r/debian | 2021-06-17
Absolutely ridiculous. Exactly the kind of abuse I raised concern with when the freenode policy was changed. https://github.com/freenode/web-7.0/commit/1194a3e71a427a669ccdddee22006416d46eeb43#r51255169
Freenode policy changes allow takeover of "abandoned" channels, and racism.

On Freenode, Libera, and the r/sysadmin IRC Channel

Given how, when Mr. Lee changed the policy on channels to 'allow' him to just take them over he also removed a bit on hate speech (source) I'd imagine pretty bad. He's also started insisting what's happening is an example of 'Cancel Culture' so, you know. Yikes.

The new management doesn't like users fleeing to a rival network, so they've retroactively outlawed announcing channels moving to a different network by amending the rules of what's not tolerated on the network. The new rule has been enforced by a bot and can be appealed. In theory at least.

Andrew Lee has now unilaterally rewritten Freenode policy to retroactively justify his actions:news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-22
I'm guessing that he's now going to claim that the policy change he instituted 5 hours ago that allows him to do this has always been there.
