I hope this was my final post regarding this topic. Social media is too toxic.

The deeper I go into the #RMS issue, the more I find alterations to his sentences, especially decontextualizations.

Surely most of the people who re-share these deceits do so for a good purpose.

But I also think there are some sociopaths who appropriately alter RMS sentences to make him look worse than it is: from controversial to disrespectful/dangerous.

I say they are sociopaths because evidently they have found in this story a way to satisfy a desire for visibility and to appear as heroes.

We need institutions built on transparency, democratic decision making and accountability. The institution representatives should just be bearers of collective decisions made by the institution members on every single matter.

This is not a panacea. Many more is needed; but this is the quintessential first step to limit bad representatives' impact and community members to be in charge of their own communities.

I assumed that if GPT-3 generated pickup lines, they would be terrible because they would be something like human pickup lines. Instead, they are terrible for more delightful reasons.
