#Blender gets all their videos blocked worldwide by #YouTube. #Armory3D has their #Patreon page closed down and their backers refunded without any notice as to why. All the #FOSS projects hosted by #GitHub now have their hosting at the mercy of #Microsoft.

And this is just a few of the recent examples.

When is the #FOSS community going to learn that we need to create and run our own infrastructure as well as apps?

Support #decentralised #FOSS infrastructure! (eg #PeerTube, #tilt, #Gitea etc)


@Blort "our own" because there is never dissent, back-stabbing, or taking my ball and going home in the FOSS communities.

Of course all those things exist, wherever organizations are run by humans, #proprietary or #foss. The difference is, whether we want to *just* deal with those things, or to deal with those things *plus* depending on infrastructure that we can't modify, choose to run ourselves, adapt the code of to our needs etc. Infrastructure where the goals are often antithetical to free and open source software.
