Free speech is just that. EVERYONE has the right to Free Speech whether we like what they’re saying or not. YOU as a person can either listen or not listen. You can distance yourself from things you do not believe in and/or support. This doesn’t make you a racist, hater…etc… As it stands right now if you do not support something that is what’s being done…“you’re a racist”.
This has nothing to do with the “American Way” it has to do with the fact that anyone anywhere should have a basic human right to disagree with anyone. There will ALWAYS be people that hate, there will always be people that have their own agendas… that is human nature.
Taking away rights from people only ever ends one way… revolution. Look over history it’s been done time after time…
So to anyone listening I will say this. Be a good human being, don’t go out of your way because you think you have the only correct opinion and if someone is talking and/or saying something you don’t agree with at least respect their right to have their thoughts and/or opinions. Learn to be honest with yourself and do not be afraid of conversations. They can be healthy and lead to better understanding of a differing opinions.
This comic is perfect and describes my experience spot on. What is with all the politics? What does “global” mean and why is it everywhere? Why does Python have so many rules of conduct? Does there really need to be a rule governing what we do if someone wants to hurt themselves? Is Python a depressing language?
@PeterJones They’re not factual errors, unless you’re being maliciously pedantic.
That I need an account to access the forums isn’t the issue, this is expected, it’s ‘necessary’ for it to be the case. The software however explicitly asks to process and store your details for use in a mailing list - it doesn’t matter if there is no such list, nor does it matter that the e-mail feature is disabled. The existence of that checkbox, which is mandatory to access these forums, is not GDPR compliant.
That this isn’t an ‘official support forum’ is also totally irrelevant; it’s the ‘official’ community attached directly to the main project’s website, and is where you’re directed if you’re looking for support through the main website.
As far as I can tell, that summary post is completely unrelated to the complaint brought up here.
Here is a screenshot of the signup page where you create an account for these forums:
So yes,you’re completely right.
This page says that you are registering and/or creating an account. It uses both terms.
It explicitly requires you to opt into emails as part of signing up. It informs you that it will default to sending you weekly emails, and on the settings page it appears to show the same setting by default:
So one or more things should probably change. For those who are concerned about sharing your email, I was too because all the OAuth providers used to sign up use my private email which I did not want to be shared. However when choosing GitHub, even though it says that it will share all your private emails, the forum software defaults to using your [username]@users.noreply.github.com email account. This I’m happy with, and then I changed my username after the fact.
monospace text is also in red and has a light red background
multiple single spaced text lines are NOT run-on merged,
i.e., intermediate line breaks are respected
None of them support table formatting;
while the raw text is not lost, the displays do not look similar, with the Npp Community most closely matching github style table formatting (the table row texts are displayed on separate lines)
Footnotes are displayed on the next line instead of at the end of the document
Line blocks, inline images and math equation formatting are not supported by any of them
@Chengyang-Qian You are making the same mistake the CCP makes, namely, after seeing a few Uyghur terrorists, making the leap to Uyghur = terrorist and repressing a whole people in response. Genocide is never pretty.
