  14. <p>In the Free Software society we exchange a lot of criticism. We write bug
  15. reports, tell others how they can improve the software, ask them for new
  16. features, and generally are not shy about criticising others. There is nothing
  17. wrong about that. It helps us to constantly improve. But sometimes we forget to
  18. show the hardworking people behind the software our appreciation. We should not
  19. underestimate the power of a simple "thank you" to motivate Free Software
  20. contributors in their important work for society. The 14th of February (a
  21. Sunday this year) is the ideal day to do that.</p>

  31. <p>Free Software drives a huge number of devices in our everyday life. It ensures
  32. our freedom, our security, civil rights, and privacy. It enables everyone to
  33. participate in a fair society. But as with people, everybody has different
  34. reasons to love Free Software. Let's show this variety to the world!</p>
  35. <p>As the traditional day to show one's appreciation to people, Valentine's Day
  36. is the perfect opportunity to say <strong>thank you</strong> to the
  37. contributors of the various Free Software you love: developers, translators,
  38. designers, testers, or documentation writers, of huge softwares or smaller
  39. projects. All of them work on the Free Software ecosystem which we can enjoy
  40. every day.</p>
  41. <h2>Be part of #ilovefs</h2>
