Then they came for and I didn't care because I 'had no time' and because 'hacking is a crime, you see?' and because Brazil is far away..

@Shamar @jz I don't and think calling that "lynching" is full-on retarded.


And... I guess that calling me "retarded" is perfectly compliant with your #CoC! 🤣

I'd invite you to carefully read the mails #RMS wrote back then. And then compare them with the accusations he got.

A lynching mob will never accept the victims' innocence, or their right to a due process, because otherwise they would have to accept to NOT be the rightful people they pretend to be.

Lynchings frequently led to death and historically in the US based on racism.
