My toots on the recent matter...

It's a pity to see that the FSF is really just a cult of personality without any substance. However, it is a relief to see that there are so many projects and other institutions that pretty much make FSF irrelevant to the entire notion of free-software.

I never really read or paid any attention to RMS until I donated to FSF a few years back... and their newsletter was so much fanning over him. So I shouldn't be surprised that they can't see a future for free-software without him.

Thankfully, I don't really see free-software as having any need for him in the last twenty+ years, if it ever did. Certainly plenty who've contributed code commits over the years to projects who never once read a word of RMS.

So it's no big loss.
