@fraying Stallman agrees with you
@fraying @alcinnz @dredmorbius "content" has its uses as a technical term though. If you are building a general-purpose thing like a CMS, it might be used for journalism, or opinion, or art, or any one of 10,000 other things, but from the POV of managing it in the software, it's all content, and the users uploading and managing it are content creators.
@dredmorbius @fraying @alcinnz true, and "speech" is perhaps a more empowering generic term than "content", especially in the US context where speech has special protection it doesn't have everywhere else. That said, it might be confusing for CMS developers (for example) to use "speech" instead of "content".
@dredmorbius @fraying @alcinnz yes, so was I. See:
