  • Debian Statement regarding freenode takeover

    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

    reddit.com/r/sysadmin | 2021-05-27
    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.

  • #emacs is on libera.chat

    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[1] has always been there.
