@sophia let me tell you something. if you think i'm going to let you get away with spreading lies then you're wrong.
gmail isn't FOSS.
FOSS is stuff like microsoft edge and apple safari because they're free and let you open the source code of the website by clicking view source, makin them Free "Open (the) Source" Software - FOSS
@lynnesbian @sophia I firmly disagree. Here are the reasons why Gmail is #FOSS:
* No vendor lock in, you can send messages to people who do not use gmail
* No lock in in the UI either, you can use Thunderbird if you choose to and Gmail would still work
* Not only can you view the source code but you can also save it (Ctrl+S) and upload it to your cloud. Giving you the opportunity to have your own Gmail.
* It starts with a G, like GNU
All of this combined is more than enough to call Gmail #FOSS

You have a limited amount of time in this world. You decide whether to spend it being “neutral” (legitimising trillion-dollar surveillance capitalists) or working with those of us trying to raise awareness about their abuses so we can actually regulate them and get funding for ethical alternatives that don’t rely on them. If you’re doing the former don’t you dare criticise those doing the latter. We’re not the ones punching down and we don’t owe you an explanation for doing the right thing.
