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.

Oh my god, are you Americans uptight, it's as if the Brits and you have nowadays changed places and you're the ones with a stick up their asses.

Still, there are times and places for such humour, and a serious technological conference is not one of them.

So serious that St. Ignucius is punning the shit out of religion and everyone except, probably Americans would have gotten the pun about the VIRGIN Mary.

Maybe we should be happy that none of those religious fundamendalists of yours has started to call the Spanish Inquisition.
