    Yours, obviously. Wasn't it clear on my post?

    Oh, come on. You could do better than that. It doesn't even make sense. You were triggered due to my attempt to get some context on the matter. That's bound to be a result of trying to compensate for a failed position you might have had on the matter. I wanna hear about that.

    As a programmer I have to say I am completely appalled by the cash grabbing, virtue signaling, hypocrites that lead these tech companies. They saw a moment to get some free publicity and are now shoving down their newspeak down the throats of an entire profession. What's worse is that they're corrupting Linus Torvalds' vision to the core.

    Whitelist and blacklist are already neutral terms, as they predate the USA by 500 years ffs.
    You gotta love though how all the supposedly anti-capitalist "left-wing" people fall for Woke Capital again and again, in effect doing the bidding of rich people.

    Most anti-capitalist "leftism" IS run/funded in the background by rich people, who are making a killing off of it. Take BLM. All donations to BLM covertly go to the Biden 2020 campaign. The same thing happened in 2016, when all donations to BLM and the Trevor Project went to Hillary. Everything.

    In fact, it would be safe to assume that both sides are run the same way, by the same people.

    This is pretty much libel.

    I as a programmer can't figure out what this thread is about anymore.

    That's after saying what corporations actually do in this issue.

    And watching people non-react.

    You all have no hope.
    One thing is for certain: the more profoundly baffled you have been in your life, the more open your mind becomes to new ideas.

    Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.

    Libel requires a demonstrably false statement, not one that is the unequivocal truth. Corporate virtue signalling in the form of donations to leftist organizations is undisputed truth. I hope the corporations don't think this will do an iota of good in the eyes of the "peaceful protesters" who have no issues with peacefully setting fires or peacefully vandalizing the same corporations who shill for neoliberals incessantly. I would normally attribute this to some sort of "awakening" or seeing the world as it really is, perhaps even a red-pilling event, but I can't here because all of these people are going to show up and pull the level for sleepy Joe in November.
