The bulk of the OSS-fan OSNews readers are the kind of people I just can’t stand. They will try everything to discredit valid arguments, just because they come from someone who uses profanity, like Linux Hater. I got a lot of shit for linking a Linux Hater post from an OSNews KDE article today (an article which actually had two more links to other KDE articles, but NO ONE actually took the time to comment on these articles).
Until Thom gets healthy again I thought I help out with the day to day posting, but really? I am not OSNews material anymore. How can I post software news when I hate software, and especially OSS desktop software? I do try to be as unbiased as possible (hence the multiple links per article to different opinions), but I won’t remove negative articles from the daily menu just because the freetards don’t like it. I don’t care what they like or what they don’t.
It was nice that this happened though today. It freed me. OSNews is not my thing anymore, it hasn’t been for a long time, and I don’t want it to be again. I’ve moved on.
