Richard Stallman like it or not has promoted well above his level of competence so now he need a demotion to correct this mistake. Problem is the demotion should have happened almost 2 decades ago. Its one of the most common problems is being unwilling to demote a person once they show they are not suitable for X role. Yes is really hard to demote someone like Richard Stallman when they are a founder of a group like GNU and have placed themselves in position they are not competent todo.
    (...)
    Richard Stallman is demotion with that as the only option because he is truly incompetent at the level he is particular when it comes to rapes and assaults as a project lead issues like that a project lead need to be able to handle carefully and correctly. Yes demotion from position is better than him ending up in future in jail for aiding and abetting a crime because he handles his leadership position incorrectly due to his personal bias.
    (...)
    I am not ware, of any rape or "assault" he was aware of , and agreed with it..
    And I think he should NOT be judged by a crime he have not committed,
    If that ever happens, that will be persecution..

      For people that want to be in community, GPL is the best License!

      For people that doesn't like to share, there are other licenses available..
      Of Course if you use them, then, you will not have the same amount of people working on them, or even some companies could close source code.. Sony?
      But its what you chose, why to complain then?!

        From the Phoronix article: https://stallman.org/archives/2019-j...9_(GNU_Project)

        This no longer mentions resigning from GNU. It did previously: http://archive.is/36Jgx

        Very interesting. When I saw his site yesterday, he had the same post on the 27th and the 28th about resigning from GNU, which I thought was odd.

          I’m not a big fan of Stallman but frankly he is getting screwed over here. No ones job should hinge on a few words. The left reminds me sadly of the McCarthy era and honestly they are using the same tactics. Extremely disturbing to say the least. Just yesterday I learned that NYC has outlawed speech they don’t like there. Disgusting and overbearing.


          I have to wonder how Apple will handle some of these leftist Democrats that are actively trying to tear the company apart, some of which are in the running for the White House. If Apple wants to stay Apple they may very well have to support Trump or whomever gets the Republican ticket.

          the only good thing about this battle for the Constitution is that the vast majority of liberals are concentrated in Cities thus are easy targets.
          I'm glad Stallman is stepping down and I'm a right-wing/republican voter, so not sure why you think only the "leftists" are against him.

            Yeah, Phoronix is unique. But I wonder how long? I am sure there are plenty of people who would like to get Phoronix heavily moderated so that everything they don't agree with is labeled as hateful and hate speech. It could be just a matter of time when Michael will have to bend over for them.

            Now Phoronix is like Gaul in Asterix and Obelix, the last fortress of free speech, the last place not fallen under tyranny of thought police

              You have 666 posts and that offends me because it's a known hate and evil number

              Michael Why do you allow Satanic numbers on your website?

                Here's THE problem:

                If it were under manual control, there would be a fire-storm of righteous indignation. And--sorry to use almost the same word again--rightly so.
                As it is, because the moderation system is--get ready for that awe-inspiring, quick-answer-to-everything-nowadays--automated, it must be absolutely above reproach and beyond questioning by us mere mortals--as "automated" means "performed by a computer".

                This is precisely, exactly what is wrong with the whole concept of AI--the newest (to be resurrected again, that is) "baffle-'em-with-bullshit" bandwagon.

                "I find that the main reason a lot of people are interested in artificial intelligence is for the same reason a lot of people are interested in artificial limbs--they are missing one."--David L. Parnas

                  Haha, after a few years "most righteous" places would never ever allow such symbolism in any form no matter what. I am surprised there is not already bugs filed in forum software whining of different post count numbers and their relations to hate groups.

                    I wonder why. Has he returned to leadership?

                    • Taking Linux and GNU out of this, if any Board of Directors member of any org posted what he did, they would also be gone. Except in this case it's compounding with Harvard and MIT taking millions to fund a global pedo/eugenicists research.

                      And to be even more clear, this is way beyond CoC(my feelings hurt) territory. It's in active Federal and International crimes against humanity territory.

                      The crap part is, he's one of those that aren't involved with any of this. At least he wasn't documented on that plane to CARISJAMES. The others, steering our society, are still walking around unscathed. There is no upside for anyone here. It just demonstrates to the people who act/acted on this stuff to keep quiet.

                      And to be even more clear about the optics, RMS even lost 4chan with his 'actual' comments. Not reported. They are after him now too. Apparently even those sick twist have limits.
