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.

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.

“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.

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

Clean up the web!

Developers, it’s time for you to choose a side: will you help rid the web of privacy-invading tracking or be complicit in it?

I’m still amazed at how many people still use Angular knowing this

What's the point of being better than an average employee when it doesn't seem to get you anywhere?

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.
