What do you mean? Twitter censorship is at times as bad as it comes.

Didn’t ban Trump until he literally tried to stage a coup on the Capitol, despite him inciting racial violence on the regular during the BLM protests, AND actively undermining COVID-19 control.

Not exactly a good example of “censoring” the kind of people that really should be censored.

It literally isn’t. E.g. Parler had more aggressive censorship than Twitter. And what I mean by “cool” is “uncool”: this is a stupid, bad idea.

Yeah, that’s a fair point on the Parler part.

Now THAT was a very…strange and bad website.

yeah and who are the only people who care enough about using slurs that they fork an entire piece of software to remove a slur filter?

the major social media sites should be declared public so that 1st amendment rights apply. the idea that if it’s a private company it can do whatever it wants seems to go against the spirit of the 1st amendment purpose (in the us…)

trump is a dick face but he shouldn’t have been censored.

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Check out this link for more.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
