    .oO dado o genocida se omitiu e muita gente morreu em consequência de sua omissão, pode-se dizer que eventual enquadramento será por crime de omissídio?

    .oO on the FSF's anniversary, F*k gifts our communities with tons of users seeking some means of communication or entertainment that still works.  nothing like a global outage for people to try stuff they otherwise wouldn't

    .oO today, completing the fortnight of software freedom celebration, the FSF completes 36 years of fighting for users facing software tyrants.  may the next 36 be even more successful, and bring many more of us freedom, inspiration, and will to fight

    .oO it's software freedom day!
    it feels a little ahead of the right date, but I'm not one to pass a free software celebration
    let's make it a fortnight-ish freedom fest, from today through to Sept 27 (GNU launched, FS coined), and on to Oct 4 (FSF founded)

    .oO two years ago, I lived the saddest day in my life of free software activism.  months of pain followed.  I'm still shocked anyone who shares our values could think we'd better behead movement, lead org and lead project over free speech, grudges and lies
