@sophia Is that a foot pun or have I missed a story about RMS?

paedophilia apologism 

@Jason_Dodd "I am skeptical of the claim that voluntary paedophilia harms children"

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.

@sophia Agreed.

I'm glad you replied to me. I have some reflecting to do.
