It began with this piece. A woman wants reads a piece of email by rms. She got angry, and wrote a blog that wants rms removed.

Am looking into whether rms resign from fsf is forced. Still undecided. My guess is likely, but perhaps with undisclosed benefits. Note, this is really a heavy issue. It's not just sjw. Billion $ n its people r involved.

another interesting thing is that i find very few people defending rms, unexpectedly from what i know of fsf fanatics n emacs diehards since 1998. i think most do not dare to say things.

Notes from Xah Lee

In my opinion, RMS did nothing wrong here.

Richald Stallman Resign FSF, emacs tips, split window workflow, register. 2019-09-21

I consider that from now on FSF is just going to be a puppet state.
