@GIFmodel I think I've told this story before but I wrote "best viewed in 800×600" on my geocities page and then found out later that my computer was set to 640x480 and I was so embarrassed, 1 because I was a liar and 2 because I clearly wasn't using the cool resolution

reminded me of
Native Americans are asking The Apache Software Foundation, "…to take the necessary steps needed to express the ally-ship they promote so deeply on their website, to act in accordance with their own code of conduct, to “be careful in the words that [they] choose”, and change their name."
It'll be a big change, but IMO one that's necessary and overdue.
