Thank you, but I didn't provide my email adress to be automaticaly added on another mailling-list. I consider this type of use as spam and abuse.

When I suscribed, I never agree to let someone re-use my email address for other purposes.

Please, don't do that.

Yes, I have a list of all the subscribers on this list. I will
automatically subscribe them on the new libreboot mailing lists hosted
at, where we will not talk about this issue (it's
documented on the site).


Right now it just has a backup of the GNU mailing lists, but it will
soon have links to the new lists self-hosted directly on

I understand your feelings. I just want to point out that you are
effectively unsubscribing from a mailing list at and not
from one at

I'm also unsubscribing after sending this, sadly. I'm not a
libreboot developer but am a happy user and, until now, was an
avid tester.

I have little to no interest in politics or law and messages on
this mailing list just make me cringe.

Best of luck to everyone.

Hello everyone,

with sadness, I am now unsubscribing from this mailing list. I
can't bear the daily rants and accusations anymore. Since this
is not a matter of public interest, but something that needs to
be investigated by legal authorities, no third party can or
should expect to see any hard evidence for either side in this
any time soon.

It has also been sad to see some parts of the community
unnecessarily pick sides and purposefully offending others, I
personally would have expected a more distant judgement from
people engaged in the free software movement, this does not
count for everyone, of course.

This situation was unfortunately handled inappropriately from
the beginning, starting with public shaming, taking impulsive
actions in the name of the whole community and illeistic
publications with political demands to apparently involved
parties. I do not seek to attack any involved individual, but I
can not identify with this behaviour at all and do not approve
the chosen path of "resolving" this issue.

Concerning the "Future of Libreboot", since this project has
publicly moved from being an endeavour to develop software
helping people free their hardware to becoming a tool for
political activism, I do not see any future in it it,
unfortunately. I am not a developer myself, but was very
interested in the aims of this project. I was ready to obtain
a Libreboot-compatible machine and help with testing and
analysis, but without integrity in the community, this does not
seem promising anymore.

I encourage everyone to continue supporting free software,
because it's an important task and I am grateful for the work
that has been done by all developers. My highest respect to
anyone who contributed to this project in any way.

If this has all been a great misunderstanding or accounts were
potentially cracked and misused, please feel free to notify me
directly. Otherwise, I'm out of here. I have to worry about
family members with serious health problems and this pointless
negativity does not help in any way.

Kind regards.
