You just have to feel sorry for all those Adobe users in Venezuela:

That’s why so many of us here are trying to move away from subscription apps - yes, even when we love them.

Cheers,

I don’t think anyone here is “moving away from subscription apps” because of what’s happening in Venezuela.

Venezuela’s government has long accused of torture, persecuting its political rivals, it’s been shunned by more than 50 nations, it’s in the middle of an exodus of 5 million of its citizens amidst rampant inflation (consumer prices rose 52.2% in September, up from 34.6% in August and 19.4% in July), and the economy is melting down under repressive, and plausibly illegitimate, Maduro regime.

Complaining about subscriptions seems a little off the mark under these circumstances. Besides, people there are just pirating anyway.

Venezuela is one of the best working democracies with less voter fraud then the USA or UK.
Bad for imperialists and upper class that the poor still are not convinced to vote for
the CIA bloodhounds they run as opposition to Maduro.

It’s only US propaganda and the 50 countries that follow are the usual US Poodle with it’s strategy
of terror against socialists and it’s despise for the poor normal people. The economy
would be working without the US american terrorists and their trade terror to all the
people south their borders.

First the US has stolen billions of venezuelan goverment money (aka freezing) - just like nothing.
Now private companies try to do the it. 

PS: Adobe will withdraw licenses from Chile too ... soon. But surely never from Turkey, Saudi Arabia or China.

A little corner of the world without politics, culture, or opinion about anything other than outliner software is welcome.
