I legitimately thought smokershaming was something some troll-blog on tumblr invented as a joke, I never realized anybody would be insecure enough about their smoking habits to take it seriously though,

He was a very insecure man in general.

Of all the things ICE does and did at the time, he seemed to think their worst crime was...intellectual property stuff.

He also had this weird thing for one model of computer or another. Fuck if I can remember minutae like that.

I think 'Chew was a hardcore Linux fanboy or some shit.  If you use Linux, whatever, its a tool like any other, but don't let your use of it define you.  Its like letting your choice of Stanley multitools over Leatherman actually impact your personality.  Its just sad.

I thought he was just trolling some other user by pretending to be a Stallman fan? (Richard Stallman, the man behind GNU, is a weirdo. He wanted to avoid being a sellout and as a result dressed like a hobo and lived only marginally better and also is more than a little paranoid about keeping his web browsing history completely anonymous.

He mostly did that whenever Linux was mentioned because Stallman wanted to take credit for Linux because it was originally built on top of his GNU.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!
