I love technology and computers but I hate working in this industry. Nearly 27 years of it now has taken every bit of fun I ever had out of it.
This is part of why I’m having on to retro computing, trying to get back to when this all filled me with joy and wonder.
Too bad this is the only career I have any skills for.
I’m working on some tweaks for stability- DOS windows don’t work, and launching Win-OS/2 hangs the system entirely.
OMG, am dying!!!
Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.

Either Twitter and Facebook are a "public square", meaning they cannot be under private ownership and must be controlled by the government, which makes your censorship argument valid, or:
in a free market economy, they have control over the content of their platform.
Also, it seems that "freedom of speech" is often confused with a "right to amplification", which does not exist.
