Does RMS really prefix his emails with this paranoia?
>>
Why would the NSA want to read the emails of that tinfoil hat freetard. How does he have such an unwarranted sense of self importance? Deluded faggot.
>>
>>52414861
Because that 'faggot' is an important technological figure and he made the GNU license.
But your faggy gaymer ass won't understand that
>>
>>52414889

Being important to like 20 people isn't being important. Stop being such a faggot. He's like a less funny Terry Davis.

>Why would the NSA want to read the emails
they actually do it. it comes to the eyes of a human as soon their computers finds "triggering" words or relationships, especially international ones.
>>
>>52414972

So? Shit like that probably stops terrorist attacks.
>>
>>52414861
He's crazy. Now if he had done espionage I could understand but he's just a paranoid hippy thinking the government is out to get him.
>>
>>52414997
So you're letting other people read your email for a 'probable' reduction in terrorist attacks.
Where are the attacks they've stopped?

You've sold your privacy and you don't even know if you're safer or not. Imagine buying a car and then being told you probably have a car now. Thanks but can I drive it? Maybe.
>>
>>52414861
He supports free speech, that's enough to get your name on some lists.

By the way, there's a misconcpetion that NSA goes after "this" or "that" individual guy for whatever reason, in reality their system is massively bulk-collecting *all* internet traffic that passes through the US borders, there're 10 Gbit/s sniffers places on your ISP backbone.

Your torrents, the SSL traffic of 4chan from your pc, etc all is being recorded as you read this, even if you aren't under any investigation.

Friendly reminder.

You should look up what William Binney has to say about it, because he was part of the team that wrote the software reading your email.

He has more than enough evidence to prove the system does not work.
>>
>>52415044
You missed the point.
The point is that we aren't safer. There's no evidence that we're safer, and if there WAS, they'd be parading it out to justify what they're doing. There's nothing, we're not safer because of this. If anything the obsession with backdoors and breaking encryption is making us less safe.

As for human lives meaning more than human lives, what is a life without humanity?
Liberty or death? What was that?

Not to mention
>>52415070
We should be spying on bed sheets. You're more likely to die in the shower, or be killed by your toilet. Let's put cameras there so when a shower accident happens the police can turn up right away. Or better yet, have the police right outside the door so when they see you slipping they can burst in and catch you.

If you genuinely think Snowden is a traitor, please listen to the guy that did in the legal way.

>Binney repeated estimates that the NSA (particularly its Stellar Wind project[17]) had intercepted 20 trillion communications "transactions" of Americans such as phone calls, emails, and other forms of data (but not including financial data). This includes most of the emails of US citizens. Binney disclosed in an affidavit for Jewel v. NSA[18] that the agency was "purposefully violating the Constitution".

Friendly reminder that if Snowden did it openly and got away with it, nothing can guarantee you that dozens of other NSA agents aren't doing the same... in secrecy, WHICH IS WORSE. You'll never know what they're selling to foreign governments, those are REAL traitors.

You're just a cuck anyway and probably won't understand this, too much for your stagnating brain.

He's important to more people than you are. He's important to everyone who uses Linux, and uses GNU licensed software, considering Linux runs on supercomputers, embedded devices, TVs, monitors, routers, switches, satellites, phones, and god knows what devices (which in total add up to a lot more than windows or OSX devices, get rekt), he's important to a whole load of people.

There's terrorism and there's terrorism.

They claim it's is so open and free and including etc etc. But when people actually want to use it or ask for directions, they get the usual RTFM-treatment. I had the "privilege" of having one of these as a class mate.

RMS is simply a living artifact. Maybe he did help kick-start the core on which all the stuff you mentioned was developed, but he's done absolutely nothing afterwards - it's entirely the hard work of millions of people around the world. His job was done decades ago, and he shouldn't be allowed to assign the achievements of others to himself because of that one thing he did.

how is anybody in this thread telling you to only discuss linux?

it just so happens that tech hobbyists like open source, and that linux is the greatest open source project yet, so almost anything that's open source is somehow linux related. That's why it's discussed so often, it's the biggest project of hobbyist technology which this board is about.

give me a list of things that you want to discuss here then

I wonder where BSD would be if not for linux. I should learn some more unix history for these threads.

But I'm sure apple would've not have pushed for absolute freedom in the same way RMS does. If there was no GNU, there would probably be open source, but not free software.

Two of those degrees are from Swedish Universities, 1986 and 1996. And before you say "lol mudslimes" this was before that was a factor.

Kek. What a fucking unwarranted sense of self importance. Steve Jobs got an honorary doctorate, did he ever call himself Dr Jobs? Stephen Colbert got an honorary Doctorate, apart from making a joke about it did he ever call himself Dr Colbert?

What a fucking fedora. I mean, fine not celebrating Christmas when you're Jewish I get, but celebrating Grav-mas, a celebration of Isaac Newton is insane. For one, Newton was deeply religious and a life long Anglican, so much so that some of the modern day religious Canon is based off work Newton did while working with the Church. Secondly it's just such fucking attention seeking behaviour. Grown men don't act like that.
