Hi there, Drew. I just wanted to show a little bit of appreciation. I've known SourceHut for a long time now, and I have to say I found it a very good forge to host all of the FOSS projects we do. I'm also sorry that you have to deal with the quantity of comments you deal on a daily basis. Sometimes I find myself reading them, or even finding your user in <insert here the platform> banned for some reason, and I don't understand the reason behind that decission. You might be one of the few persons that I find myself having good, thoughful discussions (even if we ever talked more than three or four times on IRC), and I enjoy a lot those moments. > This stuff gets to me. To who it wouldn't. We're persons, after all. > I believe in my principles and I enjoy writing software that > embodies them. Among friends of my I've known for a long time, and long time FOSS maintainers, you're one of the few people that I look upon while keeping my principles and ethics in every line of code I write publicly, or even participating in a public conversation. You might get a lot of hate online, but there're also a lot of people that are inspired by your work. We might not say it aloud, and we should do it more often. -- I'll close this email by saying thank you, Drew, for all the work you do not only for SourceHut's users, but also for all the community. Cheers!
