Dear @gitlab, after reading this, I am ashamed to be using your product:

We will stop using it as soon as we can manage to and I will stop recommending you to others. Unlike you, we don’t associate with folks incompatible with our values.

Shame on you.


@aral @gitlab
Why do you feel this is wrong (doing business with someone who does not share your values)?
I'd dare say this is a very broad concept.
I'll risk saying everyone in this thread has published GPLed code, and it can be used by anyone, regardless of their intentions. Should we restrict our licenses because of this?

PS - I'm not by any means implying you are somehow wrong, I'm just trying to understand your perspective!

@FPinaMartins @gitlab IBM did business with the Nazis and helped them carry out the Holocaust.

@djayroma @FPinaMartins @gitlab How about you take your Godwin point and shove it up your smug ass? Take a fucking look around you, history is about to repeat itself unless we do something about it and you’re spending your time parroting stale Internet memes in a misconstrued calculation that your privilege will save you when it happens. Then again, what am I saying, having just glanced at your handle, you’re probably going to be wearing the latest Hugo boss attire while holding the door to it.

Nazi ment. 


Mike Godwin called, he told you to stop flippantly invoking him where his law doesn't apply.
