@chr I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it.

@deadsuperhero nice try bud, but you should probably modify the copypasta into a riff on the thing you're replying to next time instead of just pasting it wholesale

@chr "There is a proper way to meme," said one hipster to another.

@chr @deadsuperhero Replacing GNU/Linux with GAY/Linux would have been enough, smh

@elomatreb @chr But that formula feels more tired than the original copypasta. The original text fills me with neverending joy and happiness.

In b4 fandoms form and bicker over favorite rehashes of the same text. Feels almost as bad as bickering over anime or what two characters one might ship in somebody's fan story based on someone else's fan story.

@deadsuperhero Pasting it unmodified and in the complete length did make it seem much more serious and honestly a little weird


1. It was in fact cropped.

2. Don't you find it a bit pedantic to dictate how other people leverage a particular format or response?

3. When did shitposting have to function as some kind of high-order formal logic with specific constraints?

4. While I am in fact an asshole, it may help to consider that conveying tone in text has obvious limitations. The voice I compose in might not be the voice that you hear or vice versa.

@luciferMysticus i dunno why dont you ask them yourself, i think they're over in the corner smooching
