I'm kinda irked that nobody gives credit to http://calagator.org/ for having been an open source alternative to Meetup for more than a decade already
@clacke I note the note that this is sarcasm, and I make the deduction that you are in fact saying what I'm going to say. However, since I have half a mug of tea, I feel like saying it anyway, without intending to take away from your humourously sarcastic take, or criticising or disagreeing with you.
Quite a lot of people do, in fact, say things like your message, but not being sarcastic or ironic. Usually they phrase it like "this sucks".
It's disheartening and demotivating.

I'd like to deploy it to one of my VPSes, but everything is running there in Docker, wouldn't want to set up WriteFreely + deps outside.
@skynebula See also the Guardian's analysis,
I'm not the right person to do it, partly because trying to do it would break me, but I think the free software development community is in need of more emotional labour and healing than logical arguments of why RMS stepping down from GNU leadership is good or bad.
But it'll take someone who's good at that. It won't happen by itself, and it's not going to be easy.
@algernon Hmmm. Tempting.
@brennen Strangers look at me funny anyway.
