      Maybe; but the question is the direction in which it goes.

      Did they pay the toll?

        What happened to innocent before proven guilty?
        Does not apply to witch hunts. That's why they are so useful to get rid of people you don't want.

          I'm not sure how getting trampled by a witch hunt over some bs he wrote has any bearing about his other "toxic behaviour".

            The entire concept of comparing someone posting bs to a fucking murderer is kind of off the charts, but I think that given the trends it's probably going to happen within weeks.

Like, do they share the information on a diddler but not share the information on a diddler that kills the diddled afterwards because that's a capitol offense?
              That's what happens when a country disagrees with the punishments given in another.

                Because he should have been trampled 10 times over already... this is just the last straw effectively.

                  Most of the witch hunt trampling him now barely know who he is. This is not "last straw", this is completely unconnected to whatever he did previously and went mostly unnoticed.

                  Even if he might have earned this, supporting random witch hunts is still an exceptionally bad thing to do. Who will be next.

                    Well, you could say Linux has now become mainstream, and witch hunts are mainstream too. But this doesn't seem like a "community" thing, but rather a corporate takedown of RMS. techrights.org has been connecting it to the Department of Defense and IBM, which I can't confirm, but wouldn't be a little bit surprised about.

                      This really gives new context to Free Speech, which many western societies seem to take pride in. Oh sure, you can speak whatever you want, but be prepared to be dragged through the mud and have you career ruined for anything you say that does not conform to our sacred social norms. It's quite hypocritical.
