@rf Ребята, скажите мне этичный сайт для задавания вопросов и получения ответов. Наподобие Stack Overflow


@jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial@mastodon.at Do you know ethical alternatives to Stack Overflow? Maybe ask followers so we can make a list?

@wire @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial what's unethical about stack overflow? Is it just because it's closed source?

I'm genuinely curious about this.

@alexesc @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial@mastodon.at User data is licensed under CC-BY-SA 3.0, so it is ethical in some sense. Quora, on the other hand, is totally unethical: waxy.org/2018/12/why-you-shoul

@alexesc @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial@mastodon.at At the very least, it is possible to list Stack Overflow as ethical alternative to Quora.

@wire @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial You might want to look into what OpenStreetMap uses, that's self-hosted.

@alcinnz @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial@mastodon.at It says it runs OSQA, but its site is dead. There is an issue on GitHub: github.com/openstreetmap/opera The suggestion is to migrate to fork of OSQA, Askbot: github.com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel

@wire @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial I didn't know that, though still it sounds like that was fruitful direction to look.

@alcinnz @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial@mastodon.at Yeah, I didn't know it either, just looked it up. Thanks for suggestion!

@wire @jfpkdsnm@quey.org @rf @switchingsocial Out of curiosity, what's unethical about Stack Overflow?

@filkerdave @rf @switchingsocial@mastodon.at Not sure, ask @jfpkdsnm
Probably the fact that it is closed source.

@filkerdave @wire @rf @switchingsocial This program (Stack Overflow) has closed source code and an unethical privacy policy.

@mjjzf @jfpkdsnm @rf @switchingsocial@mastodon.at That's what Fedora Project did it seems: ask.fedoraproject.org/ They started with Askbot and switched to Discourse later. Here is the project history, with some opinion on why Stack Overflow is bad: mether.wordpress.com/2011/07/1
