17:57:19 < slimdaddy> yeah, you
17:57:19 < FLHerne> Surely any donation of that scale would have some intended purpose...?
17:57:19 < wright> that was you
17:57:22 < milehigh-> who ?
17:57:23 < brabo> you
17:57:30 < MIF> hey join #freenode-staff-discussions
17:57:31 < zoite> i assume that amount of cash would need to be reported on so there must be financial records from freenode of where it was spent right
17:57:34 < FLHerne> I mean, that's way more than the routine operating costs of the network
17:57:34 < MIF> hey join #freenode-staff-discussions
17:57:35 <@rasengan> again – this is the start milehigh-: https://devilfruit.com:9000/uploads/9d3c4eb17a6534f2/image.png
17:57:36 < MIF> hey join #freenode-staff-discussions
17:57:41 < slimdaddy> MIF stop please
17:57:48 < slimdaddy> or else i'll tell your mom on you
17:57:51 < FLHerne> MIF: That's here, and also shut up you're an idiot
17:58:19 < milehigh-> that told me nothing
17:58:26 < slimdaddy> rasengan what do you mean by decentralizing freenode?
17:58:28 <@rasengan> I only brought this to the attention of #freenode after 1 month and an impasse.
17:58:39 < Tamara> the s chan is the best chan
17:58:42 < slimdaddy> there is full integration into matrix.org, which is decentralized, is that not good enough?
17:58:43 < Tamara> i have this on good authority
17:58:46 < milehigh-> please elaborate
17:58:47 < wright> what kind of impasse?
17:58:47 < brabo> milehigh-: because it says nothing
17:58:53 < joepie91> looks like there's a lot missing from that screenshot, for starters
17:58:59 < milehigh-> ^
17:59:08 < FLHerne> rasengan: Also, I mean, I'm strongly in favour of the idea of a formal “decentralized” structure
17:59:08 –!– betawaffle [sid2730@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-vuapykwwajysrsxt] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account BetaWaffle] [realname Andrew Hodges]
17:59:10 < milehigh-> that could have been self written enven
17:59:11 <@rasengan> joepi91: the rest will all come at once – thats just the start!
17:59:13 < joepie91> like, we all know the “cut off the screenshot at your own reply” trick
17:59:15 <@rasengan> i received that msg and that was my respomsne.
17:59:15 < brabo> it is a very selective screenie to be used to make opinion go one way
17:59:19 < brabo> that's what it is
17:59:26 < milehigh-> ok and now what?
17:59:28 < Tamara> refusing to post the context is kinda weird
17:59:32 < milehigh-> ^
17:59:35 < joepie91> rasengan: this isn't a soap opera with weekly episodes
17:59:37 < milehigh-> you're shady as fuck
17:59:38 <@rasengan> FLHerne: So despite whether you believe me or not (and everyone else here), let's move toward making that so.
17:59:42 <@rasengan> FLHerne: That's all that matters, right?
17:59:43 < joepie91> post the full context or don't post at all
17:59:47 < Tamara> post the full thing you wanker lmao
17:59:52 <@rasengan> That's the full context. joepie91. That's the beginning of the convo.
17:59:56 < milehigh-> being shady as all hell and non-transparent is going to get you zero support around here.
17:59:58 < brabo> “we are bringing power back to the people” – do you mean that?
18:00:03 < moonshin1> i do a lot of infra buying and stuff in my day job and millions of dollars into irc just doesn't make any sense
18:00:11 < zoite> rasengan, for future donations of millions of dollars, please route through me first, i will make sure it all gets reported on
18:00:12 < joepie91> “that's the full context, that's [thing that is not the full context]”
18:00:13 <@rasengan> Others have seen more of the convo.
18:00:13 < FLHerne> rasengan: Ok, but you have an uphill battle to convince people you're moving the right way :–)
18:00:16 < brabo> and do you think trying to bribe people with o:lines is the way to do that?
18:00:26 <@rasengan> FLHerne: I know.
18:00:28 < Tamara> so there's more of the convo that you haven't shared?
18:00:32 –!– thelounge98 [~email@example.com] has quit [Quit: Killed (Received SIGINT)]
18:00:37 < brabo> shouldn't you start by asking the community, the people, what they want?
18:00:48 <@rasengan> But I hope the merit and the text of the decentralization speak louder than the messenger, FLHerne.
18:01:02 <@rasengan> brabo: It's a proposal that's being presented
18:01:04 < squirrel> rasengan: how exactly did you donate to freenode? who was the recipient of the money?
18:01:09 <@rasengan> A request for comments so to speak.
18:01:15 < zoite> how do you decentralize the ownership of a domain name?
18:01:20 <@rasengan> squirrel: freenode limited who the volunteer staff operated
18:01:23 < brabo> rasengan: what proposal?
18:01:30 < wright> sorry no, where did the money go?
18:01:39 <@rasengan> brabo: the one from April that will be presented again today, this time to the whole of freenode not just tomaw.
18:01:45 < wright> volunteer staff and donated servers. where'd the money go?
18:01:53 < milehigh-> To be honest that text is way too little information to justify what you're trying to do here
18:02:00 < zoite> rasengan, are you using freenode to launder your money?
18:02:00 < milehigh-> more info please
18:02:07 < brabo> rasengan: i think you got things backwards, solliciting feedback from community should be stop #0
18:02:08 < wright> you can check the sponsor of each server by checking MOTD
18:02:11 < brabo> *step
18:02:12 < MIF> rasengan: I want to see this “proposal” with your name on it

18:02:23 < FLHerne> zoite: Presumably by transferring control to some non-profit with a significant number of directors representative of the wider community?
18:02:25 < milehigh-> are you a Fed?
18:02:31 < Tamara> personally I'm all for money laundering, you never know where a banknote's been
18:02:44 < MIF> ^lol
18:02:48 < brabo> Tamara: true, or coins :p
18:02:48 < zoite> isn't freenode a non-profit which already has a board?
18:02:48 < milehigh-> most Us currency has coke on it
18:02:50 < milehigh-> so ya
18:02:52 < Tamara> if a rich guy wants to use an irc net to wash some money, who are we to disagree
18:02:54 < FLHerne> rasengan: Isn't the sole director of Freenode Ltd. you?
18:02:56 < MIF> rasengan: I want to see this “proposal” with your name on it
18:02:57 < milehigh-> that means its been in a nose
18:02:58 < brabo> milehigh-: and hep c
18:03:03 < milehigh-> so now you have coronas and coke
18:03:10 < milehigh-> and the heps
18:03:13 < milehigh-> the 3 C's
18:03:14 <@rasengan> FLHerne: As of a few months ago due to christels' resignation, yes.
18:03:24 < FLHerne> MIF: Please stop repeating yourself, it's annoying and unhelpful
18:03:29 < joepie91> But I hope the merit and the text of the decentralization speak louder than the messenger, FLHerne.
18:03:29 < joepie91> yeah so see, this is exactly the problem, that text looks phrased SPECIFICALLY to screenshot without context and create a misleading narrative
18:03:37 < brabo> rasengan: and why do you think you represent this community of floss communities?
18:03:38 < wright> rasengan: i thought you said she was forced out
18:03:45 < joepie91> you know, specifically to imply that you're all in favour of decentralization while chasing the opposite
18:03:47 < wright> that doesn't sound like a resignation does it
18:03:48 <@rasengan> joepie91: Not that screenshot.
18:03:54 < Tamara> then what?
18:03:55 < milehigh-> joepie91: i agree
18:03:57 <@rasengan> joepie91: I'm talking about the actual proposal which will have an RFC period.
18:04:04 < joepie91> rasengan: okay, where is it
18:04:07 < milehigh-> then what other data are you presenting to justify this?
18:04:10 < brabo> it isn't there
18:04:11 < joepie91> and where is the RFC process documented
18:04:11 < Tamara> everything is wrong but you refuse to actually prove whatever is 'right'
18:04:14 < squirrel> rasengan: as far as i can tell, freenode staff seems to be not affiliated with freenode limited though? what exactly does freenode limited do?
18:04:14 < joepie91> and who makes the final decisions
18:04:17 <@rasengan> joepie91: It was drafted early april. It wasn't complete as we seeked tomaw's help for the initial proposal.
18:04:22 < brabo> he is scrambling to write something right now that seems like he's the good guy :p
18:04:25 <@rasengan> And then this all spiraled out of hand
18:04:27 < joepie91> rasengan: okay, so there is functionally no document
18:04:31 <@rasengan> so it's incomplete which is why I need some time and to discuss with people.
18:04:33 < milehigh-> i bet you're some piece of shit FED asset because freenode
18:04:37 <@rasengan> joepie91: there is a document
18:04:38 < wright> did it spiral out of hand when you tried to do a hostile takeover
18:04:40 < milehigh-> has had a target on its back for years
18:04:46 < milehigh-> ever since that shit that happened
18:04:48 < brabo> rasengan: then share the draft right now?
18:04:49 < joepie91> rasengan: you say there is a document. I frankly don't believe you
18:04:49 < MIF> rasengan: we, whois we?
18:04:50 < wright> at which moment in time did you realise this was going fucking terribly for you
18:04:55 < brabo> cause you do realize we don't believe you, right?
18:05:07 < FLHerne> milehigh-: Can you dial back the ludicrous allegations?
18:05:19 < FLHerne> They just detract from any real criticism :p
18:05:21 < milehigh-> Why
18:05:31 < [[> MIF: 19:05:05 freenode — | we: No such nick/channel
18:05:35 < MIF> lol
18:05:38 < milehigh-> lol
18:05:41 < rowbee> lol
18:05:42 < MIF> I am talking about
18:05:43 –!– [[ is now known as we
18:05:47 < joepie91> rasengan: and considering that all of the other staff seem pretty fucking vehemently opposed to you, it's not exactly a credible claim – or not even a real claim, just an implied claim – that you're doing this in cooperation with the community or even the staff
18:05:49 < Tamara> comrade we
18:06:14 –!– we is now known as Guest69082
18:06:16 –!– Guest69082 is now known as [[
18:06:19 <@rasengan> joepie91: It was with tomaw and a mediator to be presented to the overall community.
18:06:29 < MIF> 1304:17 @rasengan │ joepie91: It was drafted early april. It wasn't complete as we seeked tomaw's help for the initial proposal.
18:06:30 < zoite> rasengan, why do you want to change what has been working for 20+ years?
18:06:31 < moonshin1> i'm still stuck on where the millions of dollars went
18:06:37 < joepie91> rasengan: like, very fundamentally, why should literally anybody care about your views on Freenode matters when you're not the one who's actually running it day-to-day?
18:06:44 < joepie91> rasengan: yeah, uh, that's not how “community engagement” works
18:06:45 < milehigh-> So wait, what happened with Tomaw?
18:06:46 < brabo> and we weren't invited as overall community?
18:06:50 < milehigh-> i heard about this and i want to hear your side
18:06:50 < brabo> hah
18:06:53 < FLHerne> moonshin1: I'm more stuck on the existence of the millions of dollars, tbh ;–)
18:06:59 < Tamara> community engagement is when you do cloak and dagger shite, the more you do the more engagement it is
18:07:02 < joepie91> rasengan: you don't write a thing and then ask the community to rubberstamp it
18:07:13 < Tamara> engaging with the community by popping up out of manhole covers in the dead of night
18:07:13 <@rasengan> I'm not asking anyone to rubberstamp anything right now.
18:07:25 < brabo> rasengan: help us believe you
18:07:29 < MIF> FLHerne: what millions of dollars
18:07:30 < brabo> produce this draft you say you have
18:07:31 < joepie91> rasengan: no, you're just telling us that you were planning to ask the community to do so in the future, which is really not any better
18:07:36 <@rasengan> brabo: 100%.
18:07:40 < brabo> we're waiting
18:08:02 < brabo> and over 5 minutes already, shouldn't be that complicated to make a paste eh?
18:08:03 < moonshin1> MIF: apparently running freenode costs millions of dollars
18:08:12 < MIF> it does not cost them anything
18:08:31 < joepie91> and I ask again: why should anybody care about what you have to say on the matter, considering that from a day-to-day operational perspective you are indistinguishable from any random Freenode user who sometimes comes online to ask a question?
18:08:31 < MIF> the staff is unpayed
18:08:33 < Tamara> most of the money has to be spent on money cleaning
18:08:39 < moonshin1> this is like some maltese falcon.
18:08:42 < Tamara> it's a bit of a paradox you know, the more money the more cocaine it's covered in
18:08:42 < milehigh-> MILLIONS
18:08:48 < moonshin1> sorry, obscure reference maybe
18:08:54 < milehigh-> holy shit rasengan ok so i do have an important question
18:08:55 < milehigh-> are you single
18:08:58 < joepie91> what gives you the legitimacy that you claim to have to speak in any kind of official or organizational capacity?
18:08:59 < wright> rasengan: if you donated millions then where is that reflected on the company's house filing history
18:08:59 < brabo> joepie91: nothing, but we should care about his bribe attempts to get prominent users on his side ;)
18:09:01 <@rasengan> brabo: I'm not going to paste something that's incomplete.
18:09:05 < squirrel> can i be an ircop pls? i only ask for $20k a month
18:09:08 < joepie91> milehigh-: let's not do that.
18:09:09 <@rasengan> brabo: But it started in april 3 and this will all be verified.
18:09:11 < brabo> rasengan: ok so then we do not believe you lol
18:09:20 < milehigh-> joepie91: what? i just want to know if he wants a future ex wife
18:09:22 < brabo> rasengan: keep hiding things from the community
18:09:26 <@rasengan> wright: not sure, we're trying to get this from the volunteer staff.
18:09:27 < brabo> surely more trust will be had
18:09:28 <@rasengan> brabo: Great.
18:09:29 < joepie91> rasengan: so that means there's no document. got it.
18:09:29 < milehigh-> i can take half of freenode for you guys
18:09:36 < wright> rasengan: no, you're the sole director of the company
18:09:40 < Tamara> strong recommendation to not marry him
18:09:41 < brabo> joepie91: exactly
18:09:45 < zoite> rasengan, do you own PIA?
18:09:49 < MIF> rasengan: I don't CARE if it is only the word “A” I want to see SOMETHING that says you and ANY freenode staff have agreed on this
18:09:52 < wright> rasengan: why are the accounts overdue and why does the filing history not reflect the “millions” you've invested in freenode?
18:09:53 <@rasengan> ok no document. great.
18:09:55 <@rasengan> zoite: no.
18:10:13 < MIF> wright: he is not going to answer that
18:10:15 < Tamara> lol this entire thing is just “just trust me bro” and you expect people to just do that
18:10:19 < brabo> rasengan: all we have so far are some words from some largely unknown person
18:10:20 < MIF> ^
18:10:21 <@rasengan> wright: again, trying to get that from the freenode volunteer staff.
18:10:31 < wright> rasengan: no, you're the sole director of freenode limited
18:10:43 < zoite> i think we should trust him, he seems pretty reliable
18:10:46 <@rasengan> wright: exactly.
18:10:46 < Tamara> whatever else you are, you don't know when to stop digging your hole
18:10:48 < joepie91> lol
18:10:54 <@rasengan> I'm not digging a hole.
18:10:55 < brabo> Tamara++
18:10:55 < MIF> lol
18:10:55 < wright> rasengan: i will ask you again, why have you, the sole director of freenode limited, not kept your accounts up to date and why does your company's filing history not express the “millions” you've donated
18:10:55 < milehigh-> Tamara: that's why my theory to marry him and steal half of freenode back is better
18:10:58 < brabo> rasengan: yea you are
18:10:58 <@rasengan> I've been saying the same thing the whole time.
18:11:02 < brabo> and you are falling in it
18:11:08 <@rasengan> wright: Good question.
18:11:08 < brabo> yeye
18:11:10 < wright> rasengan: where did the money go and why are they not reflecting in the company's accounts?
18:11:12 < FLHerne> rasengan: Given the “freenode volunteer staff” disavow all connection with the company, and you're the sole named director, I don't see why you'd need or want to ask them
18:11:13 < brabo> you have “proof”
18:11:15 < brabo> sure
18:11:18 <@rasengan> wright: As I explained, there is a major issue here. Hope you can report that to the companies house!
18:11:19 < joepie91> and I ask again: why should anybody care about what you have to say on the matter, considering that from a day-to-day operational perspective you are indistinguishable from any random Freenode user who sometimes comes online to ask a question?
18:11:20 < joepie91> what gives you the legitimacy that you claim to have to speak in any kind of official or organizational capacity?
18:11:25 < Tamara> i am not digging a hole, i continue to insist, as i fall into lava
18:11:26 < brabo> just can't quite reproduce it when asked for it
18:11:33 < zoite> rasengan, when you said you donated millions did you mean dollars or thoughts and prayers?
18:11:42 < squirrel> rasengan: you are a sole director of freenode limited and you donated millions to freenode limited, and you want freenode volunteers to explain where the money went?
18:11:45 <@rasengan> zoite: dollars.
18:11:47 < wright> rasengan: the isssue is your responsibiltiy as currently the sole director of the company and long-term the majority share holder
18:11:50 < milehigh-> how many
18:11:52 –!– deceit [~deceit@gateway/shell/hashbang/x-xlfccnrihaayutpu] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account deceit] [realname deceit]
18:11:55 < milehigh-> rasengan: give us a dollar amount
18:11:56 < zoite> so do you have a record of this?
18:12:02 < zoite> did you get a receipt
18:12:02 < FLHerne> rasengan: I know the duties of a director, and one of the key ones is not having to ask an amorphous group of anonymous non-employees about the disposition of large sums of money
18:12:03 < milehigh-> 1 mil, 2 mil, 100 mil?
18:12:07 < Tamara> it doesn't matter if you're consistently shady, the longer you're shady the more exposure you get and the more material people have
18:12:15 <@rasengan> FLherne: Good point.
18:12:20 < moonshin1> seriously, it's tragic if you donated that much money and don't know how it was spent. i mean, thanks, but it just creates so many questions instead of answering any
18:12:29 < wright> rasengan: so you're telling me you can't tell me where the money you gave freenode went and you can't explain why you've not filed your accounts to reflect all that money you claim
18:12:33 < milehigh-> you DO realize how autist people here are and they're going to find EVERYTHING you're hiding right
18:12:38 < FLHerne> rasengan: If that's actually true, it still doesn't reflect well
18:12:47 < milehigh-> any lies will be put on blast
18:12:59 <@rasengan> moonshin1: I know. ask every open source org i donated to if i asked them what they did with it. I trusted them.

18:13:12 <@rasengan> milehigh: I'm not finding anything.
18:13:12 < milehigh-> you trusted them
18:13:14 <@rasengan> hiding*
18:13:14 < milehigh-> with millions
18:13:21 <@rasengan> So feel free to find anything you all can.
18:13:25 < milehigh-> good
18:13:31 < milehigh-> i sure hope for your sake you're not
18:13:34 < joepie91> rasengan: you seem to be implying that you “donating” money entitles you to a management position
18:13:35 < milehigh-> because they will eat you alive
18:13:38 < zoite> rasengan, do you own freenode then, if you're the owner of freenode ltd?
18:13:42 < FLHerne> So my choices are that you're lying about the existence of this money, or a sequence of improbable events has occurred and you're an ineffective and gullible director
18:13:42 <@rasengan> joepie91: no
18:13:48 < FLHerne> Neither of those makes me trust you
18:13:50 < MIF> rasengan: you still failed to show a SCRAP of evidence that anything you say is tryue
18:13:50 <@rasengan> im saying i dont know what happened to the money because after i donated it
18:13:54 <@rasengan> i didnt ask what they did with it.
18:14:02 < moonshin1> who did you write the checks to?
18:14:04 < moonshin1> tomaw?
18:14:04 < Tamara> I don't know if there even are any particularly special ulterior motives, rich guy does rich guy things
18:14:09 < wright> rasengan: can you show me the accounts that reflect the money being donated?

18:14:24 < joepie91> rasengan: okay, so then why are we talking about the donations at all, when the actual matter at hand is about your legitimacy (or rather, lack thereof) as someone with any power over how Freenode is run?
18:14:32 <@rasengan> I don't know tbh
18:14:34 <@rasengan> Everyone keeps asking me
18:14:35 <@rasengan> If I
18:14:39 <@rasengan> If I'm laundering money haha
18:14:43 < wright> you weren't prepared for this were you
18:14:44 <@rasengan> So I'm just explaining and answering. That's all.
18:14:44 < MIF> rasengan: I was told by STAFF that freenode does not take any moeny
18:14:51 < brabo> rasengan: if it wasn't clear to you yet: unless you provide the community with at least shreds of proof, no one is buying your story
18:14:52 <@rasengan> wright: For what?
18:14:54 < joepie91> rasengan: okay, so let's forget about the money then, and return to my earlier questions
18:14:57 < MIF> that they don't need to pay ANYbody
18:15:01 < joepie91> and I ask again: why should anybody care about what you have to say on the matter, considering that from a day-to-day operational perspective you are indistinguishable from any random Freenode user who sometimes comes online to ask a question?
18:15:01 < joepie91> what gives you the legitimacy that you claim to have to speak in any kind of official or organizational capacity?
18:15:29 <@rasengan> but wright to be clear i mean the list will come later if you so wish when someone can compile it but just look at freenode.live ? does that show that freenode took no money?
18:15:38 < FLHerne> joepie91: Basically, that he's sole director of Freenode Ltd., and Freenode Ltd. owns the freenode.net domain
18:15:46 < joepie91> or, more bluntly: you don't actually run the network. why are your views on the network more important than those of any other?
18:15:46 < FLHerne> joepie91: That gives him de facto control
18:16:01 < FLHerne> I don't see that it gives him any moral authority, which is what worries me
18:16:02 < wright> rasengan: i'm not saying no money, i'm saying “millions” seems unlikely
18:16:06 <@rasengan> jjoepie91: I have an issue with my solitary control.. and thats why i tried to solve in april.
18:16:07 < moonshin1> surely you have at least an accountant on retainer who could answer that for you. i just think if you could put all of those facts on the table about money, who got it, and what you did after, that would be helpful
18:16:08 < wright> did you lose a couple of hundred thousand?
18:16:19 < joepie91> rasengan: but you don't have control, as far as I can tell.
18:16:23 <@rasengan> joepie91: I do.
18:16:29 < wright> what do you control?
18:16:30 < joepie91> okay, what exactly do you control then?
18:16:33 < milehigh-> so if you've been our benefactor for this whole time and you obviously dont know jack about how we operate, what makes you think you're going to make changes for the better, and that you've earned the spot you're trying to have?
18:16:41 <@rasengan> DNS, services, etc.
18:16:43 < wright> what access do you have? how come you've had to ask for kevinp to get access?
18:16:47 <@rasengan> I was simply locked out of access to everything.
18:16:52 < wright> how did you have access to services?
18:16:55 < FLHerne> For ten years?
18:16:57 < Tamara> idk why you seem super trustworthy
18:16:58 < joepie91> rasengan: last I checked, the infrastructure was sponsored
18:17:02 < Tamara> i'd totally give you access to everything
18:17:05 < wright> surely you could have given that to kevinp without having to ask publicly
18:17:20 < joepie91> rasengan: and okay, so — you're locked out, which means you cannot control those things. which means that the problem of your solitary control is solved. yes?
18:17:35 < zoite> rasengan, by millions of dollars donated are you referring to the bribes talked about here? https://distfiles.dereferenced.org/stuff/nirvana-log.txt
18:17:38 <@rasengan> wright: You don't seem to have enough information about this to ask questions that will help but I can clearly see you have an inquisitive mind to be able to help this discussion once you do. Please try to read up on everything that's been published thus far – from both sides.

18:18:21 < wright> through what mechanism did you have access to services?
18:18:44 < joepie91> like, if the problem is your solitary control over Freenode-related infrastructure, and your control over those has been removed by locking you out — then it feels to me like the case is closed, and you can fade back into obscurity and let the opers run the network as before
18:18:55 < wright> please facilitate my inquisitive mind

18:24:42 < Tamara> wonder why they haven't been answered – we can only imagine!

18:27:27 < MIF> Yep

18:27:51 < Tamara> the proof will be forthcoming momentarily I'm sure
18:27:55 < brabo> though we should be thankful of rasengan for the weekend entertainment and giving us something to channel our frustrations with the world into!

18:29:23 <@rasengan> thank you all too though. Your passion to freenode makes me know that even if I have to be blamed as some enemy to get it done – decentralizing freenode is the right move.
18:29:39 < Tamara> this is some doublethought shite
18:29:44 < brabo> rasengan: no, what we want is for you to back the fuck off and leave this community in peace
18:29:44 < Tamara> either that or a troll
18:29:45 < milehigh-> way to be a sociopath but ok
18:29:53 <@rasengan> Lol wut

18:30:10 < Tamara> indeed he didn't answer the question

18:30:26 < joepie91> only threat I see here is you
18:30:46 <@rasengan> That’s not what freenode said to me the past 6 years or so
18:30:46 < MIF> Tamara: sadily staff have confirmed that he is not a troll
18:30:51 < brabo> rasengan: doesn't quite look like that, and your empty promises of proof and docs, yeah you don't seem to be able to rpoduce that so. why would anyone believe one word of what you say? ;)
18:30:53 <@rasengan> only when I tried to stop the domain theft.
18:31:04 < joepie91> and again, you have failed to answer my question

18:32:10 < Anastasius> I dun even know who that is.
18:32:18 < FLHerne> rasengan: So far, your logs show that tomaw had control of the domain with the agreement of other ops, and he's since ceded it to you?
18:32:22 < MIF> he is trying to take over freenode
18:32:32 <@rasengan> joepie91: The answer to your question if I'm asnswering the right one is that control was STOLEN from freenode limited.
18:32:35 < FLHerne> I don't see where the “theft” is supposed to have taken place
18:32:46 <@rasengan> FLHerne: No. I had control. tomaw ceased and locked me out.
18:32:53 <@rasengan> Err Freenode limited control rather*
18:32:58 < brabo> haha
18:33:01 < brabo> nice slip there
18:33:03 < brabo> ;)
18:33:04 <@rasengan> not a slip
18:33:09 <@rasengan> I am in control of freenode limited.
18:33:10 < MIF> brabo: lol
18:33:13 < joepie91> rasengan: that's not what I asked. I asked you to confirm that if a) the problem is your centralized control, and b) you no longer have control because you have been locked out, then –> the problem is solved and the case is closed, right?
18:33:14 < Tamara> right so the 'domain theft' you're talking about is someone trying to deny you control of something that you should not have control of
18:33:16 < Tamara> cool cool
18:33:21 < JimBuntu> rasengan: please re-state your statements that had err in them
18:33:24 < MIF> oh my dog says GET OFF FREENODE
18:33:31 < FLHerne> rasengan: Why are you in control of Freenode Ltd, and why is Freenode Ltd in control of the domain?
18:33:37 < brabo> rasengan: yeah and maybe no one is interested in what you want to feel you have control over, last of it being this network? ;)
18:33:37 <@rasengan> joepie91: No.
18:33:40 < rorx> is the contention here mostly about a lack of transparency?
18:33:41 < joepie91> I mean, it was your own words that the problem was that you had control
18:33:53 < joepie91> rasengan: okay, why not?
18:33:55 < brabo> you are white-knighting
18:34:04 < MIF> brabo: what?
18:34:10 <@rasengan> joepie91: It wasn't just me, but rather the problem is that individuals CAN have control of the network.
18:34:14 <@rasengan> I simply wish to decentralize that control.
18:34:22 < brabo> playing the white knight in shining armor here to save us all poorly oppressed
18:34:27 < MIF> rasengan: as far was we know the STAFF are in control

18:34:37 < Tamara> you have it and you're deliberately maintaining it
18:34:44 < Tamara> this 'decentralise' talk is hogwash
18:34:45 <@rasengan> brabo: Either way you can think what you want. There's a lot of people in here sort of attacking me without really letting me get any words in so it might appear a certain way.
18:34:47 <@rasengan> But the truth will come out.
18:34:51 < brabo> and before today most had never heard about you, and if they did, there was nothing good in what they heard
18:34:58 < MIF> ^
18:35:00 <@rasengan> brabo: ok.
18:35:02 < joepie91> rasengan: last I checked, the network was controlled by many parties already, not a single one, and so this is a non-issue – the only issue being that the domain specifically was controlled by you, as someone who is not actually involved in network operations, and that problem has since been rectified
18:35:02 < Tamara> I'd prefer that control were ceded to a completely random person in here rather than you having it
18:35:12 <@rasengan> joepie91: That's not true.
18:35:18 <@rasengan> Tamara: Oh, okay.
18:35:20 <@rasengan> Noted.
18:35:24 < JimBuntu> Tamara: dibs
18:35:30 < brabo> so keep trying to play your power games. best case scenario you'll have a shiny empty irc network with no one there as your own little feifdom
18:35:31 < Tamara> auction time!
18:35:33 < joepie91> rasengan: what's “not true” about it, exactly?
18:35:37 <@rasengan> Power?
18:35:38 < brabo> plus a shitload of gdpr delete requests to handle
18:35:39 < FLHerne> rasengan: Decentralise it into what? Clearly a company with one director, who by your own admission hasn't been closely involved in running the network until now, isn't going to be seen as decentralised
18:35:43 < MIF> Tamara: 100 Million dollers
18:35:43 <@rasengan> IRC and power don't exactly coincide together.
18:35:45 < joepie91> Tamara: I bid three wrongly-namespaced channels
18:35:51 < MIF> rasengan: ever heard of a OP
18:35:52 < Tamara> joepie91: oooooooh now that's a tempting oine
18:35:54 < brabo> rasengan: and yet here we are, eh?
18:35:56 < MIF> what about the @ by your name
18:36:12 < MIF> Tamara: I bid 5
18:36:22 < brabo> MIF: i bid 6
18:36:30 < MIF> 100
18:36:33 < Tamara> decentralisation, in general, is a good ideal, but I think here it plays second fiddle to the fact that if one person controls it, it shouldn't be one person who's obviously lying
18:36:34 < joepie91> I bid an exclusive ~ mode
18:36:39 < joepie91> rasengan: what's “not true” about it, exactly?
18:36:52 < moonshin1> to me this just seems like naming rights issue. i don't want to think cynically that someone wants to stick a sponsor labels all over everything, but the endgame isn't transparent
18:37:02 < Tamara> exclusive ~ vs the number 5 oh now this is hard to decide on
18:37:04 < Tamara> any more bids?
18:37:15 < milehigh-> tell me about your plans about decentralizing, because i too am for that sort of thing, if done right.
18:37:25 < moonshin1> but if it is just about who controls the name, the users just defect to another network
18:37:27 < MIF> Tamara: 5 servers + 5 channels that are named wrong and 5 million Bitcoin
18:37:31 < joepie91> Tamara: I think rasengan has some o-line bribes to offer
18:37:35 < MIF> and if I get a O line rasengan will be the first to go
18:37:36 < FLHerne> rasengan: Tomaw had control by consent of the many ops who've actually been running the network for the last decade; whether or not that aligns with how you see the legal ownership, it seems much more in line with “decentralised community control”
18:37:46 < milehigh-> and why are you saying you've donated millions with nothing to back yourself up? why not get to the point and explain what you're trying to do so we UNDERSTAND WHAT/WHO the fuck you are
18:37:48 < brabo> joepie91: he has, but only if you can manage to believe him!
18:38:15 < Tamara> MIF: idk what would i do with that many bitcoins, melt them down? nah, joepie91 takes this one with the oline bribes
18:38:22 < joepie91> milehigh-: far as I can tell, Freenode already is decentralized to the degree to which that is technically possible, and the claims about “wanting to decentralized Freenode” are nothing but hot air meant to disguise an attempt at taking over
18:38:30 < brabo> also, just to say: a donation means you do not own the monies anymore, or have any say in what happens with it..
18:38:33 < Tamara> now who can do better than some oline bribes vote now on your phones
18:38:44 < slimdaddy> “If I was the one running the USSR instead of Stalin, I would have brought in the utopia and not murdered millions of people” > give me power over freenode because I’ll make it decentralized
18:38:54 < slimdaddy> yeah ok bud
18:38:55 < milehigh-> joepie91: right
18:39:00 < joepie91> and, crucially, it wasn't rasengan who accomplished that existing degree of decentralization
18:39:03 < milehigh-> that's why i want him to SPLAIN, LUCY
18:39:12 < moonshin1> usually donors who are in the 6 zeros club expect to get a seat at some kind of table
18:39:14 < Tamara> freenode's glorious leader with sole control promises democracy, and I say, maybe we should believe him
18:39:20 < MIF> but Tamara my first kline would be rasengan
18:39:23 < MIF> :(
18:39:29 < joepie91> milehigh-: right, just wanted to make sure his empty promises were not mistaken for legitimate ideals :)
18:39:34 < milehigh-> indeed
18:39:42 < brabo> Tamara: yeah, those people always are to be believed
18:39:49 < brabo> nothing could ever go wrong there
18:39:51 < Tamara> brabo: exactly, glad we're on the same page
18:39:59 < Tamara> all hail our new god emperor
18:39:59 <@rasengan> I think you all have a really big misunderstanding of how IRC networks work. Freenode is far from decentralized.
18:40:01 < slimdaddy> cant even write multiple sentences without frantic typos, nor coherent arguments. Not to mention passive aggressive and snide remarks, while threatening staff as well
18:40:02 < brabo> he's just saving us from the evil opers
18:40:02 <@rasengan> And that's the problem.
18:40:04 < milehigh-> I heard every corporate takeover of an entity has always gone well
18:40:11 < brabo> e.g. white-knighting
18:40:13 < Tamara> oh right so the problem with irc networks is irc
18:40:16 < milehigh-> nothing corrupt of bad ever happened when they come all secretively and shadily
18:40:23 < wright> can you try to take over matrix instead so you can kill that instead
18:40:25 < milehigh-> or*
18:40:31 < milehigh-> wright: lol
18:40:34 < wright> if you're so hot on decentralisation
18:40:36 <@rasengan> moonshin1: You can see I've donated to so many orgs and never asked for a board seat so that doesn't apply here.
18:40:40 < brabo> wright: oh all you need to do is get matthew alone in a dark room
18:40:42 < rorx> what are the network assets? I thought all servers which, I would think is the great majority of the assets, are owned by those respected volunteers who wish to provide connectivity. beyond that, the network provides staff that controls those servers “IRC and up” and that's it.. so beyond staff choices, what else about it is “centralized”?
18:40:44 < slimdaddy> eat shit rasengan, simp somewhere else or make your own foss on matrix
18:40:47 –!– slimdaddy [~OwO@unaffiliated/thiccdaddy] has left #freenode-staff-discussion [“The Lounge – https://thelounge.chat"]
18:40:53 < Tamara> oh right cool so donating to other things entitles you to fuck over this one
18:40:56 <@rasengan> no
18:41:11 < brabo> Tamara: nono, you forgot, he's just saving us
18:41:12 <@rasengan> I'm just giving an example to what moonshin1 said as it relates to donors expecting board seats. I don't.
18:41:14 < moonshin1> rasengan: do you have a list of your donations somewhere? sorry if i missed that somewhere
18:41:15 < MIF> rasengan: I demand that you answer this
18:41:15 < milehigh-> What's the end game here?
18:41:17 < Tamara> having money and doing different things with it under different circumstances doesn't say anything to us
18:41:17 < joepie91> rasengan: hi, I ran an IRC network, have helped rearchitect another to mitigate significant abuse issues, and know multiple of the Freenode opers personally. I think I might have a bit of a clue about how IRC networks work
18:41:17 < MIF> 11. I get a lawyer and tomaw says he understands and is sorry etc
18:41:19 < MIF> and sends me a letter.
18:41:22 < brabo> sooper dooper cereal you guys!
18:41:32 < MIF> what letter
18:41:33 <@rasengan> moonshin1: No, I don't keep track. However, I'm sure if you ask any of the orgs they'll tell you?
18:41:34 < Tamara> nah what would joe pie 91 know here
18:41:42 < Tamara> joe pie ninety one what kind of a name even is that
18:41:43 < zoite> rasengan, if you donate to me i will say nothing but nice things about you
18:41:54 <@rasengan> eff, gnome, fftf, krita, apache, sf freedom conservancy, etc.? ;o
18:41:55 < moonshin1> rasengan: have you donated to oftc, offhand?
18:41:57 < milehigh-> damn joepie91 drop the mic
18:42:04 < MIF> I don't accept bribes
18:42:04 <@rasengan> moonshin1 offered it but never did it since nobody responded
18:42:11 < milehigh-> lol
18:42:20 < brabo> Tamara: hahaha right, who ever heard of joe pie before?
18:42:22 < milehigh-> frankly maybe you should listen and answer joepie91
18:42:24 < brabo> joepie91: ;) 18:42:28 < zoite> i DO accept bribes, if anyone is offering 18:42:29 < Tamara> brabo: joe pie more like joe mama 18:42:31 < Tamara> fucking gottem 18:42:32 < milehigh-> to what joepie91 is saying i mean * 18:42:38 <@rasengan> joepie91 Great. I know you know IRC. 18:42:44 < MIF> and Please note that if rasengan every says that he controls Sturtz Network or Sturtz IRC he is ling 18:42:45 < Tamara> i'll happily take bribes in units of 100k eur 18:42:49 < milehigh-> great, we dont know that YOU do. rasengan 18:42:52 < Tamara> i think this calls for five bribes 18:42:59 < milehigh-> fucking arrogance this of this asshole 18:43:00 < wright> sorry rasengan was that “[..] relates to donors expecting board seats. I don't.” 18:43:03 <@rasengan> milehigh : maybe i dont. 18:43:05 < brabo> i want ten or no dice 18:43:07 < milehigh-> obviously 18:43:12 < moonshin1> rasengan: that's cool if you have. if you have relationships with people at eff, it would make sense to ask them for an opinion on this situation 18:43:15 < joepie91> rasengan: great, so then we can conclude that your earlier claim that we must misunderstand IRC if we believe Freenode is decentralized, is false 18:43:15 < wright> 17:54:16 < rasengan> Hey Freenode Staff! Hope you're well. A message from the official board of Freenode Limited, owner of the freenode IRC network: [...] 18:43:24 <@rasengan> moonshin1: I don't want to pull people into this but you can if you wish to 18:43:32 < Tamara> the sheer arrogance is p cool i for one trust someone like this running things 18:43:33 –!– deceit is now known as deceet 18:43:58 < brabo> rasengan: well, those orgs you claim, it can be verified ;) 18:43:59 < moonshin1> rasengan: i'm not a party to this dispute 18:44:00 < milehigh-> me too 18:44:10 <@rasengan> brabo: yes it can. 18:44:13 < Tamara> all I really know about this is how I've seen you act and you act like a slimy fucker 18:44:15 <@rasengan> moonshin1: feel free. 18:44:19 < milehigh-> ooh are we verifying things 18:44:20 < wright> another one andrew can you confirm this is your account https://twitter.com/2drewlee/status/1346599349183135744/ 18:44:24 –!– not-joepie91 [~not-sven@2001:985:2c31:1:b837:2762:66d:ceed] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [realname not-joepie91] 18:44:24 –!– deceit [email@example.com] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account deceit] [realname michael m.] 18:44:25 –!– gallifrey [~firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [realname jonathan] 18:44:26 < milehigh-> LET'S VERIFY PLEASE 18:44:27 <@rasengan> thats not my account wright 18:44:29 <@rasengan> i dont have twitter. 18:44:34 < brabo> hah 18:44:36 < brabo> right 18:44:41 <@rasengan> ... 18:44:48 < launchd> so who wants to impersonate you then 18:44:54 –!– deceet [~deceit@gateway/shell/hashbang/x-xlfccnrihaayutpu] has left #freenode-staff-discussion  18:44:54 <@rasengan> nobody's impoersonating me. 18:44:56 <@rasengan> thats a different person. 18:45:02 < Tamara> multiple people can be called andrew lee and be assholes 18:45:04 < Tamara> eesh 18:45:08 < launchd> hmm 18:45:18 < MIF> oh hey launchd 18:45:27 < wright> sorry andrew are there 2 andrew lees that work for handshake 18:45:29 –!– slinger [~slinger@gateway/tor-sasl/slinger] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account slinger] [realname slinger] 18:45:31 < wright> if this isn't an impersonation account 18:45:45 <@rasengan> wright: yes. 18:45:54 < MIF> HAHAHA Sure 18:45:58 < Tamara> are you sure it's not more andrew lees than that 18:45:59 –!– jan6 [email@example.com/users/jan6] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account jan6] [realname all hail ##jan6] 18:46:06 < moonshin1> rasengan: i mean it would be nice to have actual lawyers give an informed opinion here (eff particularly) but since i'm not party to this or a major eff donor, my ask isn't going to get much traction 18:46:08 <@rasengan> Tamara: I answered his specific question. 18:46:11 –!– parazyd [~parazyd@devuan/developer/parazyd] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account parazyd] [realname parazyd] 18:46:13 < Tamara> awful lot of andrew lees around these days 18:46:35 < MIF> rasengan: you sill did not answer mine 18:47:12 <@rasengan> what letter? is that what youre asking 18:47:22 < zoite> is doxxing allowed on freenode? i thought it was frowned upon 18:47:37 < brabo> Tamara: mr andrew lee – Found 1807 similar entities from 24 datasets 18:47:43 < Tamara> who's doxing who? 18:47:47 < slinger> it’s not allowed 18:47:47 < joepie91> rorx: you are basically correct, by the way. the freenode servers are physically operated by those organizations which sponsor them, though the system administration side is handled by the team of freenode opers, which consists of multiple people. the only really centralized part here, as far as I can tell, is the domain – which is unavoidable, that's how the domain name system works, and so the more important 18:47:47 < joepie91> question is who has control over that. and it seems clear to me that the answer is “not this guy” 18:47:50 < Tamara> brabo: damn 18:48:05 < brabo> that's from occrp 18:48:56 < MIF> rasengan: 1) how did you come to your “power” 2) Where is this “proposel” 3) Can we see a copy of the letter you sent? 4) why has most of freenode staff not heard of you 5) what is your favorite food 18:49:11 < joepie91> rorx: s/who has control over that/who should have control over that/ 18:49:24 < joepie91> though right now it doesn't make a difference, since he's locked out 18:50:06 < MIF> how so? 18:50:10 < zoite> joepie91, well it sounds like at some point rasengan did have control over the domain 18:50:14 <@rasengan> 1) i have no power 2) its in gdocs and dated, cant be faked 3) yes soon like i said it will be today currentlyl there are other things taking place 4) they all (all the ones from pre 2021) 5) probably kalbee tang. 18:50:16 < zoite> so why did he have control and why was it taken away 18:50:34 < Tamara> the strong consensus here seems to be that he should not have control, if we're going to talk about decentralisation that seems like a good start 18:50:51 < joepie91> zoite: correct, at one point he did have control over the domain. that is no longer the case as he was locked out, apparently by an oper. 18:50:51 <@rasengan> 18:50:54 < MIF> rasengan: then send it to me and gdocs can me faked 18:51:05 < zoite> right but why, what did he do to warrant that 18:51:07 < wright> “i have no power” < rasengan> Fuchs: The freenode limited board does not recognize you as a volunteer or any staff or operator of freenode. Please remove yourself from ops and operator status. Thank you. 18:51:16 < zoite> we are missing some important details here 18:51:41 <@rasengan> there are things you have all said and asked that youre going to be in disagreement with me. but after you read tha tlatter at least some of the falsehoods are answered and we can be more constructive. 18:51:51 < Tamara> That looks like a letter written on the back of legal threats 18:51:56 < brabo> rasengan: ah so, an error happens and you start sending your lawyers on the case? 18:51:57 < joepie91> zoite: oh, lots of details are missing here for sure. though mainly on rasengan's side 18:51:57 < Tamara> am I meant to think better of you for it 18:52:00 < wright> < rasengan> As I'm sure you have taken the time now to digest the messages — as you all know, I am the man of second, third, and infinite chances. I love this world, I love freenode and I'm going to continue doing everything I can to stay true to who I have strived to be. This won't make me waiver. If any current or former staff wishes to talk this 18:52:05 < slinger> falsehoods answered with more falsehoods? 18:52:06 < brabo> still looking like the bad guy here ;) 18:52:10 <@rasengan> tamara: it was a legal letter sent and he responded with his lawyer one way 18:52:14 <@rasengan> and then he separate sent that to me. 18:52:27 < MIF> rasengan: do you have any soicils 18:52:27 < Tamara> lol 18:52:36 < brabo> ofc someone will lawyer up if you use your lawyers to send letters instead of talking to them.. 18:52:41 <@rasengan> zoite; i showed u the origiunal msg 18:52:43 < wright> rasengan: so you're engaged with tomaw through lawyers? 18:52:44 –!– CTech [ComputerTe@unaffiliated/computertech] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account ComputerTech] [realname ZNC by ##bnc4you] 18:52:48 < MIF> hey catgirl 18:52:50 <@rasengan> that took place april 3 or whatever when he attempted to cease access to the domains. 18:52:51 < MIF> err hey CTech 18:52:55 < CTech> hi 18:53:06 <@rasengan> wright: tomaws lawyers are engaged with my lawyers whi;le tomaw and i have continued discussion somewhat separately. 18:53:12 < CTech> o/ rasengan 18:53:16 <@rasengan> hey ctech! 18:53:22 < CTech> sup dude :] 18:53:23 < wright> why are you fucking up #freenode 18:53:24 < slinger> and what exactly is the point of that? 18:53:25 < joepie91> rasengan: that's generally the very first thing that a lawyer will tell you not to do. 18:53:25 < wright> are you lawyers mad 18:53:29 < wright> your* 18:53:33 < joepie91> like, literally 18:53:37 < slinger> ^ 18:53:42 < joepie91> the first thing 18:53:43 < brabo> joepie91: indeed 18:53:56 < wright> rasengan: can you clarify – how long have your lawyers been engaging freenode (via tomaw) 18:54:01 <@rasengan> joepie91: yeah but he decided to engage w/ me – i have no issue engaging. 18:54:03 < wright> i'd like a date 18:54:09 < brabo> there are 0 good reasons to keep talking outside lawyers 18:54:17 < brabo> unless you are after something else ofc 18:54:27 <@rasengan> the reason i had to speak was because libera chat and the resignation letters happened. 18:54:29 < slinger> i think they're after more control 18:54:35 <@rasengan> i couldnt let freenode go. i didnt want to fracture the irc world more than it already is. 18:54:45 < moonshin1> the question i have is whether tomaw was representing oftc or himself 18:54:49 < slinger> shitting one network just wasn't enough 18:54:50 < brabo> and so you decide to.. try and fracture it? :) 18:54:55 < Tamara> If you don't want to fracture IRC then get tae fuck eh 18:54:55 <@rasengan> no im not fracturing it. 18:55:04 < brabo> you do seem to be trying hard enough 18:55:09 < Anastasius> It's sort of self-fracturing, he didn't have to do anything. 18:55:10 <@rasengan> im trying to be a good custodian and bring this to a decentralized entity. 18:55:14 < joepie91> rasengan: yes, because it is totally normal for a group of dedicated volunteers to leave the place that they've been maintaining for years, for absolutely no reason whatsoever... 18:55:15 < zoite> rasengan, so the access was revoked from you by mistake and you are wanting to create a decentralized way to handle domain ownership to avoid it in the future? 18:55:17 < slinger> do you realize the chaos you're causing and the stress you're causing in good people's lives? 18:55:17 < brabo> a good custodian>/ 18:55:20 <@rasengan> the libera chat and resignation letters were in action. the net is up. people are on it. 18:55:26 < brabo> what do you think you are to this community? 18:55:32 < brabo> our saviour? 18:55:33 < Tamara> As far as I can tell, if you were not involved, there would not be a problem here 18:55:36 < zoite> i'm just trying to piece the puzzle together but you're giving us details backwards 18:55:41 < joepie91> rasengan: how about you tell us why opers have prepared resignation letters 18:56:00 < wright> circling back – how long have your lawyers been engaging tomaw? 18:56:23 < pgimeno> gosh, it's déjà vu all over again... 18:56:25 <@rasengan> wright: since tomaw threatened us. thats when we stopped talking to him. without going into detail. (it will come out) 18:56:33 < Tamara> it will come out!! 18:56:36 < wright> i'd like that information now please 18:56:39 < wright> that's an allegation 18:56:40 < joepie91> ah yes, hypothetical evidence again 18:56:44 < moonshin1> he threatened as who, himself or oftc? 18:56:46 < slinger> what exactly did tomaw threaten you with 18:56:47 < Tamara> hahahahaha now we're back into the 'just trust me' territory huh 18:56:52 < wright> i'd like you to tell me when tomaw threatened you and how he threatened you 18:56:52 < brabo> Tamara: it will happen! hey, i seem to have seen a certain Q saying that the whole time! 18:57:04 < Tamara> brabo: the day will come!!! 18:57:10 < brabo> next week! 18:57:21 < slinger> and preferably some hard evidence to support your claims 18:57:27 < brabo> and it will be “big”! 18:57:29 < Tamara> FIND OUT IN NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE OF RASENGAN 18:57:32 < zoite> i wish i could hear the story from start to finish, not fragments at a time in random order. 18:57:44 < zoite> i feel like UDP 18:57:50 < moonshin1> i'm first trying to ascertain whether oftc has a role in this or if it was just tomaw v lee v freenode opers 18:58:03 < joepie91> lmao 18:58:16 < brabo> zoite: i know a joke about that. i could tell you, but you might not get it.. 18:58:25 < zoite> brabo, you probably wouldn't care either 18:58:37 <@rasengan> moonshin1: oftc does not have a role in this. 18:58:37 < Anastasius> I feel like I should be wearing my fedora, sunglasses, and trenchcoat even reading this. 18:58:45 < milehigh-> you aren't? 18:58:51 < moonshin1> rasengan: thanks for clearing that up 18:58:53 < milehigh-> 👀 18:58:54 < Tamara> ah the trenchcoat is essential equipment 18:59:01 –!– [[ [~noisytoot@fsf/member/Noisytoot] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [account Noisytoot] [realname noisytoot] 18:59:04 < brabo> the fedora better be black though 18:59:14 < Tamara> ah mine is actually purple, is that likely to be a problem? 18:59:14 < Anastasius> Maybe a raincoat instead, I think things are going to get messy. 18:59:18 < milehigh-> wow we're being all blackhatted now 18:59:30 < brabo> Tamara: does it at least have a tint of grey? 18:59:34 * milehigh- wraps tin foil around her head 18:59:48 * milehigh- puts the fedora over it 18:59:51 < Anastasius> Ever been in the front row of a Gallagher watermelon smashing festival?

Will you put out a line of handbags and stuff? 19:03:06 < [[> What's freenode ltd? 19:03:07 < Tamara> looking forward to getting a fashionable freenode ltd hoodie 19:03:19 < Tamara> thinking of renaming to leenode? it's got a ring to it 19:03:38 < brabo> rasengan: and why do you not share the stolen mt gox coins with us? we'll for sure take that bribe ;) 19:03:39 <@rasengan> rorx: There was a takeover attempt of the assets and ownership of freenode that wasn't adding up which I rebutted with the request to decentralize which was given 0 attention. All focus was on the domain specifically. 19:03:46 < moonshin1> i personally would not be opposed to a funding model based on merch, as opposed to super wealthy benefactors and/or server donors. but that's not likely to happen 19:05:37 < joepie91> rasengan: a 'takeover' that was prompted by what? 19:05:58 < Tamara> sources: just trust me 19:06:21 < joepie91> rasengan: and how, exactly, are we supposed to believe that you're our saviour from a hostile takeover, when pretty much the entire oper team has said “no, fuck off” to you? 19:07:24 < brabo> rasengan: and why was London Trust Media Holdings incorporated in brazil? was that to scoot off any ill-gotten gains? 19:07:27 < Anastasius> Isn't that what they would do though? 19:07:32 < Anastasius> Circle the wagons? 19:08:01 < Tamara> the 'decentralisation' shite is a bit funny thinking about it, there's some underlying delusion that it's an ideal in its own right rather than something with any actual purpose 19:08:09 < Tamara> the point of decentralisation is to remove power from slimy fuckers 19:09:08 < brabo> Tamara: it's the same buzzword cryptoscammers like to use 19:09:19 < brabo> not unlike some twitter account someone linked 19:10:25 < rorx> rasengan: so, when you say “freenode assets”, it sounds like you see this asf mostly limited to the domain name. Is that fair? Care to expound on this takeover threat; and for that matter, how your plans to “decentralize” it will improve matters?

That's understandable, the philosophy and values behind what started this network some 2 decades ago, were opposed to corporate interest. That was easy to do at at the time, as there was not much corporate intere 19:26:44 < rorx> st to speak of on the 'net. So,… the question is, how now, some 2 decades later, in this now, pervasively corporate-biased internet, is it possible to run this network without corporate support. This seems to be the challenge for all of us who use and appreciate the network, have to work together to commit to defending and maintaining. 19:26:55 < brabo> rasengan: also, did you pay anyone for the crown prince title? if we're all about openness and honesty here.. 19:27:08 < Tamara> crown prince? 19:27:08 < joepie91> rorx: it's actually running fine, that's the thing 19:27:25 < deceit> man, i was gonna make a sandwich, but i think i should make some popcorn 19:27:26 < joepie91> like, there are no operational issues 19:27:39 < brabo> Tamara: On 6 October 2018, Yi Seok, son of Prince Yi Kang (the fifth son of Emperor Gojong of Korea), nominated Lee as a “Crown Prince” of Korea, claiming that he is a descendant of the House of Yi, the ruling royal house of Korea during the Joseon dynasty, which lasted until 1897. 19:27:50 < joepie91> the infastructure is provided by sponsors 19:27:54 < Tamara> ahahahahaha 19:28:05 < brabo> Tamara: he did invite us to dig for dirt, right? 19:28:14 < Tamara> yeah from sponsors pov this is a pretty good deal 19:30:54 <@rasengan> joepie91: a take over after christel resigned, they are all kinda in on it or misled 19:31:03 <@rasengan> brabo: ltmh was in brazil due to a brazilian mma league 19:31:28 <@rasengan> tamara: i agree with you description of decentralization even if you mean to say im a slimy fucker. 19:31:38 –!– notif [email@example.com] has joined #freenode-staff-discussion [realname https://webchat.freenode.net] 19:31:51 < Tamara> to avoid all doubt, yes, that is what I mean to say 19:32:10 < wright> rasengan: checking in on that tomaw threat bit 19:32:13 < brabo> rasengan: oh that sounds like a good explanation.. or is it? 19:32:27 < rorx> joepie91: then what role does “Shells” and previously “Private Internet Access” have? Those sound like corporations to me. How does Freenode's charter, if any, specify how much of a role and restrictions those types of sponsors have on Freenode?
