If you allow your freedom to be compromised in any way, then the whole
thing is gone.

We won't ever be able to achieve complete software freedom so long as
people keep making trade-offs. Trade-offs are the mentality of the open
source non-movement, not the free software movement.

Friends don't let friends use Facebook. If you give your friends
alternatives by running, say, a Pump.io or a Diaspora* hub, they would
switch. If they respect their and your freedoms, of course.

I do agree that LibreJS is rather slow, which is why I use NoScript to
simply prevent any JS from running. If I really need JS for the site, I
can determine if it's trivial enough or if it's free.

I think LibreJS' biggest problem is the way it reads licenses.

Either way, you are free to run whatever you want, I am just seriously
questioning Parabola's integrity as a free software system, especially
after witnessing the long thread in [Dev] discussing whether to call the
Arch distro GNU/Linux or not.
