@comzeradd I'm calling for removal of all the parasites that signed this

@comzeradd The main accusation is that he has “problematic opinions”, it seems

@comzeradd It's like every other singnature is associated with GNOME or Debian


“We, the undersigned, ask for the entire Board of the #FSF to step down ...”

Including those Board members who specifically voted against his reinstatement? This seems like overreach.

@nattiegoogie @comzeradd I'd agree that it's a bit of an overreach, but since none of it was public, and no statement has been released, it's tough to be more nuanced.

@comzeradd Also the president of the @fsfe was attacked similar, also woman-hatred while he never such impression to me. Okay, it is subjective but that's my impression.

"Stallman had to resign from the foundation he started in order to save it from a similar smear campaign. All over an email voicing a perspective shared by a world-renowned civil-rights lawyer and feminist. Voicing such a perspective was even decried as “abuse!” because it was so politically incorrect, but what happens if society gets “politically correct” wrong?"
