Richard #RMS Stallman announces:
"I'm now on the Free Software Foundation board of directors once again. [...] some of you will be happy with this and some might be disappointed, but ... in any case that's how it is and I am not planning to resign a second time"
I also want to make it clear I don't think it needed to be this way. RMS could have taken an action or made a statement like:
"I'm aware that some of my past actions and words have hurt people. I want to apologize to the people I've hurt and tell them that I hear you, and I want to improve. I'm going to be doing a lot more to help this process and make the Free Software community more inclusive. The FSF has brought me back on and I"m grateful that."
My point is that I think there was still room for RMS in the Free Software community and even in the FSF, if that came with a lot of soul searching and hard work.
Without that, then the FSF's actions are entirely inappropriate and, in my view, show the organization to be deeply problematic.
It hurts me to say that. The FSF has been disappointing in terms of how little they accomplish, but this is something else.
