 "obedience breeds foolishness"

### the-fake-stallman-foundation other pages: => wont-be-called-free-software.html | => herding-teams.html | **update:** => oliva-ousted.html | *originally posted:* jan 2021 => corrupt non-profits that have silenced their own founders do not typically reverse course. generally most non-profits will abandon their mission eventually, as the quest for sponsors becomes more important than the mission itself. ### may 2021 update rms is "back" but still being filtered. please note that oliva says fsf != gnu, so if this is really about gnu (not technically about the fsf) let him quibble, thats alright. ``` schestowitz__ >>> Sorry, I do not have it.

"stallman is coming back" 1. he did come back. 2. though we are still waiting for major changes. 3. he was gone for a fucking long time, and there was definite fuckery involved that really demands a very good explanation we probably wont get. "much of the board has resigned and the board is under review" 1. yes they did. 2. we are still waiting for visible results from the changes on the board. 3. see most of #3 from previous section. "stallman understands the problems with systemd" 1. maybe more of them than most of us are told. 2. its been 6 fucking YEARS! 3. we are still waiting for SOMETHING. 4. it probably wont address / admit directly that systemd is an example though. 5. why the fuck did it take half a decade? not rhetorical-- WHAT IS THE REASON IT TOOK SO LONG? schestowitz anyone wanna help me proofread?
