@dgold About a year ago, I properly heard about co-ops, and it kinda blew my mind. I love the idea that you can do commercial transactions, and not just be shareholder based ownership, where all the the profit/surplus goes to the capital owners
@ebel @dgold The minute we start to add on morality clauses into our code, we run into terrible issues, many of which have been talked about in the past but are things like "You can't be South African and use this code", or "You can't have ads or accept money".
If we go down this road people could say "No Irish", or "No Jews" or "No Gays". Free Software must be free for absolutely everyone.
@emacsen I definitely don't support someone adding bigoted restrictions like that.
But BSD licence advocates say GNU licences aren't free, because of the share-alike req. Didn't BSD have an attribution req?
I don't agree with "Pub Domain is the only freedom", so clearly I'm OK with some "restrictions" for something to still be "free".
