I’m (still) using freenode and some of the old hands (sailfishos-porters) are also on oftc. I’m also on libera.
As I mentioned, I’m acquainted with one of the operators. All of the people of note left and only andrew remains. Are you suggesting that pdf of his clarifies what happened? I’ll grant, I would have called him out in 2017 and not let it slide so long. But I’ve also been involved when someone who had registered a domain (was the holder) tried to pull this scam while it was clear he was an ‘agent’. In the end, the org. dealt with it. In this case, Andrew was the org.
Anyway, tell me which ops at freednode you trust and recommend I talk to for their inside view?
In addition, the abuse from freednode started pretty quickly (I was the second person to be on #sailfishos at libera and it was spammed badly).
