#FreeSoftware allows anyone to use, share, modify and redistribute software. But you are still required to follow the specific conditions of the copyright license. You cannot claim copyright to code written by others.

This is not the first instance of such false claims. It has become a trend to take Free Software, falsely and shamelessly claim as 'Made in #India', without writing even a single line of code. Beware of such frauds and promote the Free Software idea, if you notice such instances.

Tooter.in is just copying #Free
Software and shamelessly calling it 'Made in #India'. It is made by people from around the world and shared freely.

Either they did not write even a single line or they are violating the #AfferoGPL #copyright license, which requires them to publish their changes. They are linking to original code in #gab project repos (which is a fork of #mastodon).

Even the terms of service is just copied with references to first amendment in the USA.


I can't stand people who mistake friendliness for a weakness.

Sometimes you have to be a complete asshole just to be taken seriously - and I hate being one.

@Framasoft Suggestion for both #JoinMastodon and #JoinPeerTube:

Please make it so that the website suggests less populated instances first and displays a big warning against fostering big instances. This avoids what #WhatsApp and #Google did (see libreplanet.org/wiki/XMPP ), where both started as #XMPP providers but once they became big enough, they closed doors.

Rapid Heat-Stress Test Identifies Resilient Corals

As rising ocean temperatures threaten #coral #reefs worldwide, identifying the most heat-resilient coral colonies is crucial for conservation efforts. Typical methods require flying samples to distant laboratories and subjecting them to high temperatures for weeks. Now a new heat-stress test brings the lab to the reef, yielding results within a single day.

“Women’s names have reached the system, but their voices are still far behind”

Bihar’s gender indicators show that it lags behind national averages – its female literacy rate has gone up from 37% to 50% between 2005-06 and 2015-16 but this is still below the national avg of 68.4%, according to the National Family Health Survey 2015-16. It has the worst female labour force participation rates among all states – 4.1%, against the national avg of 23.3%, according to the National Sample Survey 2017

The Women’s Reservation Bill was enacted in 1993 by bringing in the 73rd Amendment. While many Indian states reserved 33% of seats for women, the minimum as per the amendment, Bihar was the most generous – it kept 50% seats for women in local bodies. Thereafter, 19 other states offered 50% reservation.


@akshay @fscamp "When there is a simultaneous onslaught on everything you believe in from all directions, you need to find something to latch on to - to give you hope and direction. For me, it has been the free software camp."

Personally speaking, I share the very same opinion. Thanks for sharing ❤
