趣文:“Richard Stallman 的網站為何看起來這麼糟?”

早上在 Reddit 看到一篇有趣的文串,標題是:Why Richard Stallman has such a poor website?

文中引用 Richard Stallman(以下簡稱 rms) 的話說:rms 平時是用 Emacs 來編寫網頁,而且,他從來不會由自己的主機/NB,使用瀏覽器連去別人的網站觀看網頁內容。

那麼,rms 如何觀看網站?他的方法是,先把要看的網頁用電子郵件傳給自己,用程式濾出文件內容之後,再用 Lynx 來觀看。此一過濾程式的下載位址如下:

rms 為何如此?原來這和他對自由的堅持有關。一個人竟能擇善固執到如此的地步,你還真不得不佩服此人的毅力啊。

以下是 rms 的說法:

I generally do not connect to web sites from my own machine, aside from a few sites I have some special relationship with. I fetch web pages from other sites by sending mail to a program (see git://git.gnu.org/womb/hacks.git) that fetches them, much like wget, and then mails them back to me. Then I look at them using a web browser, unless it is easy to see the text in the HTML page directly. I usually try lynx first, then a graphical browser if the page needs it (but I make sure I have no net connection, so that it won’t fetch anything else). I also browse from other people’s computers, with their permission. Since I don’t identify myself to the sites I visit, this browsing can’t be connected with me. One consequence of this method is that most of the survellance methods used on the Internet can’t see me.
