This just continues with a bunch of half truths followed by
blatant lies. Who has given you feedback that you are unwelcome. And
btw, you are talking like you speak for a group of people. Who exactly
is this group that is search for ways to remain in GNU but are getting
negative feedback. What and who is giving you negative feedback.
This story, as you write it, is unbelievable.

You don't have to do any such thing. Nobody is asking you why you work
for an organization headed by Richard. They don't. I know, it is
bizzarre for you understand, but the braoder world couldn't care less
about RMS and couldn't pick him out of a line up.
Aside from that, RMS has no such "bizzarre notions" about sex and
consent. What is bizzarre is that you are fixated on a a falsehood,
propagated by a lyer.

leadership, and your saying that it is, makes you very suspect.
Their is nothing morally wrong with GNU, and there never was, or its

I think this is the point where the term hysterical becomes
at no time has GNU been evil, or run by evil people.

Nobody are GNU, from RMS down ever bullied ANYONE... period.

GNU is an elitist organization that promotes that all software be Free.
But anyone can join.
