Comment So Palmer supports a fascist demagogue. (Score 5, Interesting) 852

He's proven himself to be a duplicitous piece of shit since the acquisition. This is not shocking.

I don't want carob instead of chocolate just to "prove a point". I bought an Android phone because I prefer it to Apple's walled garden, and have more freedom to use my hardware as I choose.
