Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y During the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, Richard M. Stallman of the Free Software Foundation (and the Superfluous Introduction Award goes to...) gave a keynote speech. Said keynote speech raised a few eyebrows in the Free software community because of a number of questionable remarks regarding women in technology. David "Lefty" Schlesinger, member of the GNOME Advisory Board and active in the mobile open source community, took issue with RMS' remarks and decided to call him out on it. The response he got was... Less than satisfying.

Thom, do you really think it is a good idea to call someone an asshole and "a person like that" when criticizing inappropriate behavior?

When the shoe fits.

Do you really think that when writing a summery of what happened, leaving out the reasons Stallman gave about why he doesn't think his remarks were sexist, is good journalism?

His reasoning is in there, and his emails are the main story link.
