Seeing as you decided to call me out specifically, that line of reasoning falls apart when you note that WMF foundations funds and supports initiatives that would been seen as supporting all of those examples you gave: - Wiki Loves Earth for animal sanctuaries, highlighting areas of natural

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Is the Wikimedia-movement apolitical?

2020-04-25 Thread Rebecca O'Neill
Well said. Everything is political, and when the movement choses not to speak out or state an opinion on something, then we are giving our support to the status quo. Believing yourself to be apolitical is as much a fantasy as being completely objective, it is inherently impossible. Rebecca On

I've been involved in the movement for ~7 years, took one look at IRC and walked very quickly the other way, having used it 15+ years ago. I'm all for retro, but that was taking it too far. Relying on a tool that has been been haemorrhaging users for years, and golden years are seen as around 20
