Interesting topic. I have been thinking about moving from FreeBSD to OpenBSD for a long time and, apparently, I will do it (after 18 years of using FreeBSD). At one time FreeBSD was in every second company. Today, the Core team is more interested in political issues related to women's rights than technical ones. No one else (including Core members ) uses FreeBSD. And no attempts to fix it. It seems that this is not my project anymore, unfortunately.I just saw this in response to FreeBSD's new CoC. Are people really becoming this sensitive to what is supposed to be a highly technical product?
Except that in every known instance so far just being accused has made the person guilty with no recourse and has weakened the project in my opinion. I've used FreeBSD since 1997 and maintained ports and help debug drivers for release and I'm actively moving away. Just my $0.02.I may be the only one thinking so,but this code of conduct makes me feel even more proud of belonging to this community and gives one more reason to believe that this is the best OS in the World. I don't see any particular sign of weakness,laziness or a badly hidden request to join, finance and support the conmunity.
A CoC has just to establish the rules of behaviour required in order to build a polished, cooperating, effective and comfortable working environment for all the teams to be well coordinated and productive, and this CoC does exactly so in my opinion
Again I say, this "movement" started with Linux so what are you moving to?Except that in every known instance so far just being accused has made the person guilty with no recourse and has weakened the project in my opinion.

We're both already in one with palemoon and need to stick together.Is this really enough to start just another flamewar Open- vs. FreeBSD?
And I'm probably already in trouble for naming my screenshot examples "normal" and "skinny"...Harassment includes but is not limited to:
Comments that reinforce systemic oppression related togender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation,disability, mental illness, neurodiversity, physicalappearance, body size, age, race, or religion.

The only purpose of written rules, in this context, is to keep the lawyers happy and give management something to use to fire someone. Otherwise, no one goes to participate on a technical web site or any group and stops first to read a "code of conduct".Without rules and fair enforcement of them
That's at Wikia's sister projects. They're:The only purpose of written rules, in this context, is to keep the lawyers happy and give management something to use to fire someone.
Well, I been using dragonFly and I like that...but I screwed up my install doing stuff with hammer that I didn't understand. I have always like OpenBSD but have all nvidia cards otherwise it would be that.Again I say, this "movement" started with Linux so what are you moving to?
Another question, in what way is any of this directly affecting you?
It's not the case at FreeBSD. That's a problem at Wikia's sister projects. They have a reputation for chasing women off, and they have tried to do damage control by making phony baloney rules, which have no merit or sincere backing. FreeBSD is making the mistake of taking their rules seriously enough to base their guidelines off of a community which has those rampant problems.It seems more to me that people are assuming they are being criticised from being a women or a majority than the actual fact that you might just be an a**hole or you code just might not be any good. I have seen it first hand and that hate that more than anything else.
