"This Giving Tuesday, please consider making another donation to protect and sustain Wikipedia." No, Jimmy. Not until you oust the SJWs who are warping and censoring the facts. submitted by novictim to news

I used to donate to them. To this day they send me mails asking that I repeat my past donations.

I link their Gamergate article and remind them that I'm not a leftist and won't pay for leftist propaganda.

Damn shame, that. Damn shame!

Imagine if even half of us turning off the National Felon League spend that time actually doing shit. Hiking, barbecuing, shooting, whatever.

New York Times: The A.C.L.U. Needs to Rethink Free Speech submitted by EmmetMcTaggart to news

Most of them are disconnected from reality and interpret it through their feelings rather than trying to learn about it. Words, the tool humans use to write laws, cease to have meaning when silly little girls like this one are permitted positions of authority. They just pretend they mean what they want, and use social bullying tactics to pressure others into complying and participating in the lie.

Leftcunt: "Hate speech isn't free speech".

Adult: "Actually, "free speech" includes speech you think is hateful."

Leftcunt: "Even racist speech?"

Adult: "Of course, we aren't required to like it, but-"

Leftcunt: "That's racist though. Supporting racist speech like that, providing a platform for it-"

Adult: "It's not racist to be honest, and we aren't even talking about 'platforms'-"

Leftcunt: "It's disgusting and gross to let racists have a platform. Are you, like, really okay with supporting racism?"

Fortunately, thousands of men who already do such jobs have chosen to volunteer their time to create software that they make available for free. People can choose to use this software with minimal effort, builds like Ubuntu and Mint are dead easy to install and operate. You don't even have to buy Office software, it comes installed!

"but,, butt, buuuuuUt!"

No buts. Turn off your motherfucking Netflix for just one evening and you can learn all you need to ditch Microsoft software for 90% of personal uses. The only thing you can't get for personal use is full access to AAA video game titles.... that is, full access to carefully crafted Skinner boxes that rub your feelz just the way you like them, carefully scheduling releases of reward chemicals to keep you banging the pellet bar.

It has never before been so easy to bypass Microsoft operating systems and software. All that is required is a willingness on the part of the consumer to expend some effort and brainpower to make it happen.

It was not specified in the OP, but when I replied, I spoke about the vast majority of Windows users -- end users. Individuals. Very, very few individuals need specific business tools available only on Windows.

I will not deny that there are career paths that will require using Windows for years to come, but most users of Windows are not doing office work on them. Most users are private actors who choose to purchase OEM computers with Windows and MS Office pre-installed because it is the path of least resistance.

This thread was started with a reply to a claim that "all the new tech will be made for Win10 only". This is a valid concern to raise, but the only answer is in fact the one in the reply given, which is "do something about it". If you don't want to code, if you have no interest in it or are very good at other things and it would be absurd to spend your time coding, help finance those who are willing to do so.
