Statement of FSF board on election of Richard Stallman (RMS):


@fsf Deeply disappointed in this decision to bring RMS back. It reeks of desperation and lack of insight into how the community feels about the issues of our time.

RMS is not a lawyer, nor trained legally. Looking to him for advice on legal matters seems farcical. While he does have connections and insight into the technical components of free software, it hardly matters as much as the lost reputation from his gaffes.

I, for one, will no longer be a member of an organization that is deaf to us

A world should not be ruled or governed by people's feelings. It's so personal...
