The FOSS-only people remind me of vegans. Plenty are respectful. Other ones get in your face to tell you how much of a piece of shit you are.
@Elizafox Unfortunately it's not just vegans or FOSS people. Such individuals happen to be in all communities with "big ideas".

Unfortunately, this sometimes includes me as well.
This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
