Any FOSS dorks following the RMS kerfuffle?

Even though he’s a weirdo, and says stupid shit, I can’t help but like the guy (from afar).

Not my own insight but I kinda have to agree with the proposition his job is to be a salesman, which is a bad fit for terminal social awkwardness. That said, I feel free software needs some of his brand of insanity.

Edit: for non-dorks, Richard Stallman (RMS) wrote a bunch of important software back in the day, and segued into being the spokesman for the free software movement. He’s... a character. Quite obviously on the spectrum. He was canceled recently from the Free Software Foundation (FSF), which he created, for some of his more colorful opinions.

This made people mad.

Then he was uncanceled, which really made people mad.
