Shitty day at work. Was tired after pulling an all-nighter and ended up running git reset --hard in the wrong directory, giving me so much fucking trouble.

GitLab CEO made a preemptive declaration that they'd do business with anyone they can legally do business with, in response to employee protests at a competitor (Chef) who was doing business with ICE. In addition, employees would be forbidden from discussing the ethical implications of serving these customers under the guise of "no politics in the workplace". It has nothing to do with restrictions on content for their free service.

GCC has been surpassed by LLVM in terms of technical superiority, and they accomplished that in a very short time whilst kicking out misogynistic shitters along the way.

whoosh

Stallman is someone who spent years harassing women in his circles. You make it sound like he was removed over a single mistake, when his antics spanned decades, and defending Epstein was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

People like Stallman drive talented women out of free software (and tech in general), and that's the real tragedy here--not the loss of some bitter old dude whose contributions in the past few years had become increasingly irrelevant anyway.

So much talk of "witch hunts" and "mob justice", when the most plausible scenario is that he resigned entirely willingly.
