The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules. It's people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages. As a precaution to ever committing major acts of evil it is our solemn duty never to do what we're told, this is the only way we can be sure.
andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.
This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.
https://archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.
here's an example log: https://gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5b1d18e964c581ef18ccb3a79f

‘We truly believe in the value & human rights of #softwarefreedom, which should be without borders.
That is exactly why, though not in Europe, we still strongly support the ideas, notions & campaigns of FSFE.’
– Franklin Weng, Software Liberty Association Taiwan
What have happened with freenode should lead to big projects self hosting their own IRC server instead of massively migrating to liberachat. It isn't that hard or resource intensive.
However, I don't think that this is happening. It's kinda sad for those of us that believe in a libre and decentralized internet
In case you haven't still decided what to watch on Sunday, you can put this film into your list,
Nothing bad can happen (Tore tanzt)
Disclaimer: The movie can be disturbing for some viewers. Don't watch it if you are emotionally sensitive.
I have written a short and simple tutorial on how to register a Nick on @liberachat .
'Writing good #Software is one thing, but getting the word out, countering corporate lobbying, and working towards an environment where #FreeSoftware even gets a chance in public sector tenders is equally important.’
– Thorsten Behrens, #LibreOffice Developer
Freenode changed hands, things are going south, and the community is jumping to libera.chat and other alternatives. End of an era.
