#rms addresses the free software community

"[...] For instance, I defended Professor Minsky on an M.I.T. mailing list after someone leaped to the conclusion that he was just guilty as Jeffrey Epstein. To my surprise, some thought my message defended Epstein. As I had stated previously, Epstein is a serial rapist, and rapists should be punished. I wish for his victims and those harmed by him to receive justice."

@MatejLach they want any excuse to remove #RMS from the #FSF.

I saw a comment of someone about "gnu tools" saying that the point wasn't RMS or the FSF, the point was having a new #GPL license more like the BSD or MIT. Maybe their goal is to convert #freesoftware in #proprietarysoftware.

In the end, with this kind of actions they show us who they really are, they are #egotistical people who only want money and power, they don't care love and other people.

I'm gonna need a source on that because I've not heard anyone ever say anything like that.

I can say pretty confidently that this is not what the people who want RMS and the FSF Board to resign. I can certainly say that for myself anyways.

@lionirdeadman @MatejLach

I suggest you to search about it, if you are one of the signers of the anti-stallman letter you probably didn't search for all the related information at first, so it is common to be a victim of misinformation.

To begin your search:

lbry.tv/@Lunduke:e/StallmanLet

lbry.tv/@DistroTube:2/mob-ment

Maybe you will notice after checking the videos but just in case:

Bryan and Derek are NOT supporters of RMS.

@r_libre @MatejLach

I will request it again. Give me a source.

Lunduke provides no information of value about RMS and he lies about this being a mob and the open letter being closed because they didn't want delete requests.

DT in 20seconds already lied many times. The letter is not about Open Source, the letter does not threaten the movement, this is not a mob.

You are wasting my time.

@r_libre @MatejLach

Processing didn't even sign the letter but okay. This also doesn't seem to imply that they want something permissive. I think it's misguided but they can do so, I suppose.

@r_libre @MatejLach

Again, nothing about being permissive. They seem to be focused on licenses which respect more humans rights. If anything, it's more extreme than the GPL, not more permissive.
