i guess i shouldn't have been surprised since "withdrawing consent" isn't supported by law or culture in so many places. i just never know the details of the assange's case and was so viscerally disgusted when i read that post

Julian Assange is a piece of poo poo. Yeah that's right, I said it. I know that's such a controversial and partisan opinion that it would cause many people to simply close their own threads, but hopefully the OP can take it.

I ALSO HUFF MY OWN FARTS


the cool thing about julian assange for me was that 2010 marked the year when i properly realized how lovely opinions most tech enthusiasts (especially when organized into "communities") hold

a bit dense of me to only realize then, but at the very least assange made it nice and clear-cut for me

this dump really tells us nothing which wasn't already blindingly obvious though~~

I vaguely remember this one time wikileaks started posting some ridiculous racist garbage and people questioned if those were really Assange's views and instead was just "extremist" poo poo from some channer who was taking care of the twitter account back then

so uh what came of that? and is it really assange who was the one DMing this poo poo (not that I believe he's a better person than what those are showing really)

My favourite Assange thing is still and will always be when he got paid an advance to write a book then backed out and kept the money so they printed what little they had from him anyway.

This is also a v good (but long) article written by his ghost-writer:
https://www.lrb.co.uk/v36/n05/andrew-ohagan/ghosting

quote:

One of his strategies was to invent, on the spot, new avant-garde styles that the book should adopt. One day he said the book should contain ‘parables’ and he suggested the paragraphs should be numbered, like verses. ‘You’ve got to get yourself and staff to see the book as a priority,’ I said. ‘A great book will set things right. It will constitute a much bigger thing than turf wars or Tweets.’

‘But it can’t be the priority,’ Julian said. ‘Ending wars and starting a revolution in Libya is the priority.’

I’ll bet twitter hasn’t banned Assange because feds want to prism his DMs
