Sometimes, very seldom, you wake up and something which you didn't think was in the realm of possibilities happened during the night. The first time it happened to me was when princess Diana died, the most impression made the 9/11 attacks on me in this regard and this morning Richard Stallman resigned from FSF https://www.stallman.org/archives/2019-jul-oct.html#16September2019_

I didn't follow what all that was about but the Register has an article about it: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/09/17/richardstallmaninterview/

I'm more surprised that it took so long. His bullshit about pedophelia, his sexism and his sexist behaviour is well known. I mean, he gave „pleasure cards“ to women on conferences because he was not allowed to hit on them… and when the organizers told him to stop he asked at least one woman to follow him to the street outside of the building and handed her a pleasure card. He should have stepped back ten years ago, he is and has always been a sexist asshole… What I am more concerned about is the fact that media once again doesn't tell the truth. He did not say Epstein's victims voluntarily had sex with these people; he said that it is most likely that Epstein forced the victims to play the willful girl, because he had an interest in hiding the fact that he was forcing these women. It doesn't make anything better, he is still a sexist prick and it is right that he stepped back. But we have to address this media problem somehow…
