You know, the website is full of prejudices and
call-outs, mischaracterizations and calls for mob justice, including
fake links and hypocritical public shamings. It is hard for informed
person to take it seriously. It is hard to verify what is fact and
what is not a fact but mob justice attempt.

It is irrelevant who is who or who uses which nicks. I am also against
public shamings for any reasons or labeling. If I really don't like
somebody, I will not communicate with that person. If I communicate to
a person, I already like something about the person, even if we have
opposing views.

That is why I have no filter and no worry. On my Fediverse account, I
am not blocking anybody, and I feel good and safe, as I am simply not
reading those articles or messages that I don't like. 

But public shaming or stalking of people or labeling them in public is
not that I can recommend. Mentioning nicks would mean that I or
somebody else should keep the "black list" and watch out who is using
which link. If I wish to filter anybody, I will do so, but not tell
other people to do so, because my opinion on filtering is probably not
shared with everybody.

Such public shaming or labeling would be based on information from the
website which has not get credentials. Let us not initiate new acts of
mob justice. Moderators are already doing their actions. 

Information from that website represents other
politics that does not have purpose to increase number of contributors
to GNU project, and it contains number of defamations and false
