Gebru, Mitchel, and Bender all re-tweet, compliment and support each other
on Twitter. I found the Gebru talk on Bender's Twitter before she blocked

and I suspected Bender had an agenda (something about how
conventional linguist theories are shown to be garbage by LLMs
understanding language) but now I know it is deeper hate than that.
