Isn't that the old Sun keyboard layout?
Yep, and that's what I learned Emacs on. I've set caps lock to be an extra control key on every PC I've owned ever since.
Which is why Internet access should be a public utility, and not left to the private sector.
The last thing I want is local, state, or federal government being my ISP. Customer service from any of those entities, for anything in which they engage, is worse than any ISP, mom-and-pop or national. It's like watching Medicate or the VA, and then saying that going to the doctor for an ear infection should be a trip to a government office.
He's been saying for years that our phones are being used as spying devices. Most wrote it off as an extreme view, even those who are sympathetic to Stallman's causes.
Do you have any evidence for this? Because tracking data wasn't exactly a secret, but I think most people put up with government (and corporate) intrusion on privacy as the government being government, and what are you going to do, gotta live your life, convenience, etc. I didn't see anybody calling Stallman out on this.

Ctrl+Anything is not ergonomic.

Twitter is a pure money sink that is trading on their fame. I'm not even sure how they would monetize it and I don't think they know either.
They reportedly get somewhere between $2 to $3 billion per year in advertising revenue. They are probably an extremely bloated company geared for growth. It looks like they are starting to trim the fat. Just how much money would it take to run Twitter on a budget? My guess is not much.
What are you trying to say?
That a piece of jargon with a very specific contextual meaning is at risk of being dumbed down when it's used in the wrong context. As it was in this case.
