really goddamned disappointed with the state of meta-fedi discourse right now, now more than ever we need unity and technical solutions to long-running and difficult problems with activitypub, federation, and server software, not a bunch of wild, salacious, and frankly pretty offensive conspiracy theories about Eugen or whomever the hell bears your pet grudge

so psa: eugen hard severed working with purism when they made it clear they had no intention to keep far-right and nazi assholes off of librem one

so maybe if you want to criticize Eugen and/or Mastodon, stick to things that are actually true and not a bunch of falsehoods and frankly offensive conspiracy theories #mastodon #mastodev #mastometa #fediverse #floss #foss #women

@maloki It's so frustrating to see dudes who have never crafted in their lives and don't know what Ravelry is about go "MIMIMIMI I hope this hurts your bottom line".
