Thank you for this.
Could you elaborate on the definition of knowledge, please?
This is something I've long been interested in.

I'm not familiar with this specific situation, but I agree that more

Why do you doubt Fram? What do you think happened? And why can't the WMF say

Was support for legacy TLS temporarily discontinued or something?
I noticed I couldn't connect the other day, but now it seems I can again.
For what it's worth, I strongly oppose any measure that makes Wikimedia
projects less accessible.

Anecdotally, it seems people sometimes don't upload their photos to Commons
because they don't realize that the scope of Commons is much broader than that
Has there been, or should there be, any research into this, or why people don't
contribute more broadly?
Please, enlighten me.

I agree, the lack of transparency is quite concerning, as is the use of AWS.
I sure hope we're not going to be producing closed source code!

My two cents: I'd rather have such discussions on wiki.
Old browsers are more compatible with the wiki website, and it'd be more
convenient and accessible otherwise.

It is disturbing that you would even consider overriding the community in such

It would do a great deal to clear the air of speculation if they would at least
confirm they're not accusing Fram of off wiki harassment.
