Purism Librem 5 

Here's a reminder that if you're in Europe and have ordered a Purism Librem 5 phone, you have 14 days to request a return and refund under the Consumer Contracts Regulations. Otherwise, you've helped fund a company that willingly hosts hate speech in the fediverse.
You can also request this refund before it even arrives, that's what I did x

Other phones to consider: The Pinephone (has hardware killswitches and not Android, far cheaper even), or a Fairphone 3 (More ethical construction, very repairable and open to alternative OS')

If they're ok with hosting rancid ideas "because it's legal" don't feel bad about using your consumer rights "because it's legal".
The email to put your refund request to is ops@puri.sm by the way. It wasn't easy to find that out, wonder why :thinkin:

Should clarify that it's up to 14 days from when you have the phone in your hands. I got my refund months ago during the pre-order period and ages after I made the order, don't wait for sure

@robjloranger nicer than giving a platform to bigots though? I've saw far less on this topic than I'd like too, but at least now you know

@Shrigglepuss

never, thanks for the heads up

@Shrigglepuss Worth noting that:

1. Fairphone doesn't ship outside the EU & is as expensive as you'd expect for a manufacturer that vets each link in the supply chain like they do.

2. Pinephone is currently still in the development stage. (Though they do have dev kits available for $149 USD!)

@KitsuneAlicia this toot was directed to Europeans anyway, I hope other regions get the same opportunity soon though! Fairphone 3 is a considerably cheaper alternative for those in regions it's available though, ~$492.53 (€450), opposed to Librem 5's $599

@KitsuneAlicia I also hope people in the USA etc that pre-ordered before Purism shown their ass have the same opportunity to claw their money back from their nasty hands. Perhaps someone in the US can look into this?

Thanks to your brave actions now we can avoid hate speech people to not use free/libre software.
