When I do unpaid volunteering work, I refuse to write non-copyleft code. If it is my own project, I license it under AGPLv3+, and if it is another project that is under a non-copyleft license (e.g. Apache2.0, modified BSD aka BSD-3-Clause), I license my changes under AGPLv3+.

My haskell code formatter of choice is brittany because it is under AGPLv3.

Wondering if anyone has written a guide on "How to donkey vote the 7 flavours of nazi parties" (re preferential voting in Australia)

Tempted to put a "no liberal party propaganda" sticker on my mailbox

sorry to say, but that's not even an originally creative position to take. the same old tired parasitic argument has been made by copyright exploiters about music and movies, and by software tyrants about the GPL that you praise. power over others is not freedom. you're perfectly free to modify AGPLed software and use it for your own computing. the requirement only kicks in when you attempt to use it to gain control over remote users. they deserve freedom, and control over their own computing, as much as you do, no matter how convoluted a reasoning you might have to try to deny them the freedom they deserve, and every rationale I've ever seen that calls for power to take freedom away from others backfires: as other exploiters flock to gain and exert such power, you end up losing orders of magnitude more than you could potentially gain. if users don't matter much to you, do without them; you're not entitled to them, and no users is what you should earn for not respecting them

People around the world use sites that rely on proprietary JavaScript - often without realizing it. Nonfree JavaScript subjugates users in the same way as any piece of proprietary software. We should reject it. fsf.org/campaigns/freejs

Income from free software over 2 decades.

While I have obscured the numbers, around the second line is better than mere survival income levels for me.
