I used to be naive enough to think communism would work but then I realized that humans are inherently shitty and selfish.

I guess I should clarify, what I take issue with is the notion that a project owner or developer owes anyone anything in the FOSS community.

Anyways I've blocked the drama queens and can now go back to my nice quiet drama-free mastodon feed. Back to the EleutheriaPay grind (and an upcoming new project because I hate free time).

🤔 yeah um... that's called entitlement. It absolutely has everything to do with gargon's freedom over the project.

There is something oddly refreshing about working in vanilla HTML + JS + CSS

Whoops, apparently stripe requires me to use their CDN so there will be 1 dependency using a CDN. Welp...

Want to hear a joke? People telling open source developers what they need to do.

If you have a suggestion, go ahead, we love that. If you get mad about the a difference in opinion with the developer(s), fork it or kindly fork off.

@Claire I have considered all of those things and still disagree. But thanks for chiming in.

Rewriting the front-end of EleutheriaPay because I hate the node build step. All dependencies will be on the repo and manually updated. No CDN will ever take down EL. Doing this right.

@jdaviescoates @bugaevc @xerz I'd suggest a Lenovo Yoga 370 or something similar. Finding one used on eBay isn't that bad from what I remember and it runs Ubuntu or PopOS (I recommend this) perfectly. PopOS detected the drivers needed for the Wacom digitizer and the stylus worked out of the box too.

“TikTok and ByteDance’s advertising revenue is built on the personal information of its users, including children.”

We built a world where not only is this legal (“punishable by fine”) but rewarded (to the tune of billions in revenue). Everyone involved, please, take a fucking bow.

Techbros? Ah so you see I get frustrated when people get it in their skulls that FOSS developers owe anyone anything. They don't. Don't be entitled.

And yes I blocked you as per my bio. Low tolerance for stupidity, etc, etc.

@CobaltVelvet That's funny, because the context of this thread is him changing the boost message but your opinion was, of course, very original and definitely solicited. Don't be a hypocrite.🤷‍♂️

Seems like a silly thing to get wound up about. It's just words. Hey if they don't like it they can fork it and fork off. It's your code.

@CobaltVelvet @Gargron
Last I checked developers can do whatever they want to with their code base 🤷‍♂️

Love when new people join the cloudron forum and proceed to ask questions that could be answered by 2 seconds of googling + ask about setting up competing products. How dumb can you get?!?!


Just an FYI, it doesn't matter which community you're in, critical thinking before posting is important
