dog help me, I've published a PowerShell module.

the good news is, it's only useful for people who a) work on Firefox and/or other Gecko apps, and b) want to do so from PowerShell and not any other shell.

I've been working with my colleague on making some Mozilla stuff more screenreader friendly, and he's just the absolute greatest. It's great to see him being featured here as one of the creators of NVDA!

I say this sincerely, and as someone who appreciates and develops open source software: one advantage to making your social media platform closed source is that it's not immediately overrun with people posting about free open source software.

It honestly might be a better move to start closed source, grow your user base, and *then* make it open source so the FLOSS nerds you attract can't overwhelm the platform

Just had to block a "women in coding" account for propping blockchain scams. Like, I get it, if you want to waste your life savings and pump out CO₂ in order to make someone else rich for no reason, that's one thing.

If you prey on marginalized people to fuel your scam? No.
