Free Speech and Free software

Summary: The next step towards FSF success would be mending its relationship with Richard Stallman through the GNU Project

THE people who basically ousted Stallman (or convinced him that it was critical for him to step down) aren’t getting their way. Some aren’t even in the FSF anymore. They did their damage and ran away.

“It is actually not as bad as some people were led to believe or simply assume.”A lot of people are pessimistic about the relationship between the GNU Project (still headed by Stallman) and the FSF. Rest assured if you’re among those people — Stallman (RMS) and the FSF will get along fine. They already work on some document to that effect, with an early sort of draft being publicly available.

What about the management and the board of the FSF? It is actually not as bad as some people were led to believe or simply assume.

“Much of the board, however, is still “scared,” we’ve learned, and doesn’t stand up to the ousters of RMS, or even against the false narrative put forth to staff.”“It’s not that the board is compromised,” one party told us. “I think [pro-RMS people] still have a majority.”

Much of the board, however, is still “scared,” we’ve learned, and doesn’t stand up to the ousters of RMS, or even against the false narrative put forth to staff. There’s an effort to make people around the FSF believe that RMS is a major liability, a danger, and allowing him anywhere near the FSF again would lead to devastating effects.

Deep inside, we’ve learned, the majority of the board is still on RMS’s side.

  2. After the Death of the UPC the Next Casualty is the Credibility of Media That Promotes It

    The media is filled with UPC misinformation/disinformation no more credible than 'tweets' or 'troll farms' (it's the agenda that counts, not the accuracy or underlying facts)



  3. EPO Corruption Has Killed in Germany and the Netherlands Far More Than Coronavirus (Covid-19) Did

    Europe has an epidemic of corruption, but there's only panic in the media when it's of a medical nature (direct deaths)

  6. EPO Presflash 002: Diversity and Inclusion (Humour)

    The latest European Patent Office (EPO) flier, dated 5 March 2020, deals with the promise of diversity — a subject that has received much scorn for the lack of it (it's about nepotism)



  7. Inside the Free Software Foundation (FSF) - Part V: Richard Stallman is Not Going Away (Any Time Soon)

    The next step towards FSF success would be mending its relationship with Richard Stallman through the GNU Project



  8. Ethical Censorship of One's (Co)Founder

    Yesterday the OSI was justifying its growing culture of censorship [1], which includes banning its co-founder Eric Raymond (mentioned alongside Stallman yesterday [2] -- another canceled founder) in the name of problematic "ethics" [3] that corporate media is also covering/promoting this week [4]



  9. EPO Lobbyists and Team UPC Lobbying Arms Disguised as News Sites

    Managing IP is still behaving like little but a booster of Team UPC's selfish agenda; the same is true for other blogs controlled by litigation firms whilst actual journalism is nowhere to be seen (or a single UPC antagonist quoted)



  10. Linux Foundation Adds Another Microsoft Executive to Its Leadership (Fourth by Count)

    More and more management positions at the employer of Linus Torvalds are picked up by people who receive massive salaries from Microsoft (millions of dollars)



  11. Chief Marketing Officer of Linux Foundation Left Earlier This Year to Become Chief Communications Officer for Proprietary Software Vanguard That Exposes Kids' Data to Crackers

    The body that employs Linus Torvalds continues to show that the spirit of Linux, the most famous Free software project, isn't at all compatible with it

  14. Large German Publisher Helps EPO Cover Up Abuses While Relaying Lies (Which Are in Turn Relayed to EPO Staff)

    António Campinos continues with his campaign of lies; EPO workers already know he's just another Battistelli with a maturing reputation for lies



  15. Techrights Urges Readers to Ask the Linux Foundation's Let's Encrypt (Backed by Companies That Give the NSA Back Doors) Some Hard But Legitimate Questions

    It's not impossible that the bug in Let's Encrypt was introduced by a rogue insider, if not someone further up above; Let's Encrypt must address critical questions or be widely seen as a compromised, untrustworthy CA



  16. Linux Foundation Issued Millions of Faulty Certificates and Linux Foundation CMO Who Worked for James Clapper Has Left

    The Linux Foundation, whose CMO worked for Clapper, appears to have left less than 2 years after joining

  19. Open for (Not at) Microsoft

    The Linux Foundation is so open… even to those who sabotage its goals



  20. Inverted Narratives: UPC Thugs Are Being Framed as Poor Victims and Patent Trolls Claim to be the Target of Violence

    UPC is dead. Team UPC isn't dead, at least not yet. We're supposed to think that the biggest abusers of the system face life-threatening risks and the real zealots are their victims. This only harms trust in the media.



  21. EPO Outsourcing Policy and Patent Scope to Litigation Giants

    The EPO wishes to carry on violating the EPC when the sole goal is granting as many patents as possible, causing as many lawsuits and out-of-court shakedowns as possible (even when baseless patents are leveraged)



  22. The Linux Foundation is Sometimes Against Linux and Its Official Blog Posts Come From Microsoft Veterans This Month (Nowadays It's Not Even Shocking)

    The Linux Foundation became what it fought in a matter of a few years; it seems like a lost cause at this point and it actively harms Linux in a variety of ways

  25. FSF Canary

    I'm yet to publish the final planned inStallmant of the series (it's not at all about the FSF), but it is still at least a few days away, and I don't wish to keep anyone holding their breaths that long.

  27. Free Speech Isn't Violence and Richard Stallman Isn't an Offender (Nor Are His Supporters)

    Freedom is being squashed in the name of "protecting people"; this is no laughing matter because we've been seeing more of that in more and more Free software projects and communities
