If RMS is your hero then you need better heroes

Yeah this is about Stallman being back on the board of the FSF. Kev Quirk has good thoughts about how it was communicated. Me, I’m tired. I had just been thinking how some of my favorite people have been driven off the public Internet via doxxing and harrassment.

And now Free Software’s problematic fave – one of many, to be honest – is back, without so much as a hint of personal responsibility. Bah.

I’m not purging my system or anything, but I’m sure as hell done making a point of using GNU tools. This affects the FSF not one bit. It’s only me conserving my energy for things I can care about.
