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.

RE[2]: What an utter non-issue

Yeah, I don't get it either.

So his talk wasn't well received. Conclusion: Don't hire him again.


By publishing private conversations you loose integrity.

And integrity is a tricky beast.
If you don't have it people won't tell you. Better be careful.

What is "loose integrity"? Is that integrity that used to be tight?

I would have dismissed it as a typo, had you not posted the same thing on Lefty's blog.

Posts lose integrity when the grammar is incorrect.
