Well, this hypothetical guy can still try to repair the washing machine. The question is, will it be safer if you give him a proper manual or not?
I know, this is obvious. But Louis told me to think of the children, so I did.

The classic fear mongering argument of someone who has no real argument.

I want to be able to fix my coffee maker, and I don't even drink coffee.

"We design shitty products with easily defeated safety mechanisms, that's why unauthorized repair providers shouldn't repair our products"

makes sense

God forbid people to think for themselves, god forbid children to learn how to fix something without having to pay more than necessary.

How can she say that availability of schematics and documentation leads to worse and more dangerous repairs?!

her: think of the children
me: think of the irresponsible parents :D

Lemme get this straight, we are asking the right to repair so people able to work on products, can, without having to beg, borrow, steal, permission from the manufacturer? What does child safety have to do with it?

Jokes on her. When I was a child I actively looked for ways to trick the hard wired firmwear in grandmother's washing machine.

Literally sounds like when youre adding big words you dont know into your essay to meet the page requirement lmao

Wouldn't this problem fix itself if the company simply stops closing their firmware down and offers to train repair-men?

I can't wait for the times I try to fix my Toaster and it says that I need to send it for a authorized repair because it needs to be someone certified by the company to replace a 3 pin transistor

Somehow, I doubt she's ever used a washing machine.

Next up you dont have a right to do any kind of first aid no matter the injury

"clicks into function" ... ... ...
I get it. They want to charge safety latch replacements at 20x the cost of buying and fixing it yourself.

Think of the children is the emotional argument when a side has lost the debate

Edit: I also solder my software into my hardware
