After shutting off the angry notifications for a bit and having a private think, I retract my criticism of Tusky. So, some clarifications:

1. Obviously, I am against nazis. Fuck's sake, people can have complex opinions without being nazis

2. If Tusky had put an anti-nazi clause into their license, their software would be nonfree. Putting anti-nazi features into free software does not, however, make the software nonfree. Despite being usable by nazis I think free software is a good thing and nonfree software is a bad thing.

3. I would not have personally added such a change to my software, because I think it's immature and doesn't really solve the problem of nazis. In fact, it may exacerbate it. I maintain that there are much better ways to address these issues.

4. Anyway, Tusky is fine. It's dumb but it's fine.


For the love of....

There are apparently more Nazis on the Fediverse than Hitler had under his command.
