This has nothing to do with freedom of speech.

I've been reading LWN for years not only because articles are top-notch, but also because comments used to be insightful and I learned quite a few things from them. I hate slashdot, and I hate seeing LWN increasingly look like it as soon as gnome|systemd|ubuntu|younameit is mentioned.

Whether they deserve it or not, gnome people had their fair share of complaints/rants/flames. If the only effect of a LWN daily news article is to get more of it, they will just ignore any discussion here, and LWN will loose in quality.

So, better to ignore gnome in daily news for a while until things settle and devs have time to implement broken/missing features. Whether they do it or not, I'm sure we will have a balanced and fair weekly article from Corbet in a few weeks/months. How's that for "not tolerating dissenting opinion" ?

It seems a lot easier for you to just not read comments on Gnome articles...?

Yup you're right, that's exactly what I'll do now. Time will definitely be better spent drinking my own kool-aid rakia.

You want an embargo on certain articles, and that has nothing to do with freedom of speech? You've been drinking your own Kool-Aid.

Freedom of speech is a right you have, and it limits your government, not a private web site. You are perfectly able to vent somewhere else.
