At my request :)

I don't really like political discussion threads over at fdn, I see it as a technical support forum and it seems that the moderators agree.

I see.
But that was just one of many articles quoted in that article; did you not scroll further?
as i said, the choice of sources might not have been ideal, but i found the lulz.com article useful at the time because it just threw together so much different stuff without even commenting on it too much.
it could have been even more objective, but it definitely shows the topic from different angles.

that said, i do not in any way endorse lulz.com. the article was handy at the time, that's all.

and i did not link the devuan mailing list anywhere so i can't remove anything either.

yet you vigorously pushed your own political agenda before requesting the thread to be locked.
full of wild and wrong allegations against me, which i then had no means to respond to.

The OP wrote about the CoC and concerns with politicizing of Linux development. You responded to that in an appalling manner, with politics and personal attacks, and then asked the moderators to lock the thread. I am not sure why it was locked, since no reason was given, but your own post would be my best guess. ;)

Yes, you did when you quoted me here:
viewtopic.php?p=32609#p32609
Link text: always ends up going.
Would be nice if you could remove that.

DUF was created to escape the kind of BS that goes on at FDN. @ Head_on_a_Stick . . . are you going to try to police us here too? Good luck with that . . .

No, not at all, I'm done with the moderation game, it is too stressful for me.

I was just answering a direct question, that's all.

What post? There are only two. Looks like at least one post was removed when the thread was locked.
