Huh, RMS has resigned from the FSF. I didn't think that'd happen. I welcome that move. Let's try to move on, and rebuild a more inclusive & diverse movement for user freedom.
I hate how we're at a point where it's a surprise to see a powerful (at least within the community) man actually facing consequences for things they've said, even pretty mild ones.
@yisraeldov @ebel @codesections It's a trade-off: if you're a public figure and especially a president or representative, what you say in public is inevitably related to the institution you represent.
That's why limited terms are a good thing: you give up some of you privacy and personal freedoms in order to serve a purpose. Later, when your term ends, you regain them.
@yisraeldov Do you think “being inclusive of disabilites” _requires_ someone/some org to never take a person's actions into account?
It's 100% possible to be non-abelist, and to say “RMS shouldn't be head of FSF”
@ebel I'm not 100% sure what I think about that. Would be happy to discuss it with you another time, but I need to get some work done right now. Ping me this evening.
@ebel There's no need to rebuild anything. Every single one of my users already is as diverse and unique an individual as any other.
