@sophia Oh my god I can't stop laughing.
@Jason_Dodd it will never stop being hilarious
@sophia But I do love RMS.
@Jason_Dodd shame about the paedophilia apologism
@sophia Is that a foot pun or have I missed a story about RMS?
@Jason_Dodd "I am skeptical of the claim that voluntary paedophilia harms children"
in response to a Dutch political party trying to have age of consent reduced to 12 http://www.stallman.org/archives/2006-may-aug.html#05%20June%202006%20(Dutch%20paedophiles%20form%20political%20party)
He's reiterated it since. Also has some rather out of the box views on necrophilia and bestiality.
@sophia I'm embarrassed to say that although I've been a fan of the gpl and RMS since 1999, I haven't looked at much of what he's said outside of tech.
But the brief searching in the past few minutes has place him firmly off my list of heros. Holy smokes!
@Jason_Dodd it's.. Well, less than great. He's become a bit of a meme here lately because of it and how he does continue to get a lot of support, it gets very brushed aside overall
What he's done for free software development is no doubt incredible, but I guess you can do good things and still be a bad person.
