Just in case you haven't read the rest of the discussion here, this statement

> Stallman wrote that it was most plausible that the Epstein sexual partners were willing participants

is one of the misquotations of what Stallman actually wrote that change the meaning significantly.

He wrote

> We can imagine many scenarios, but the most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him as entirely willing. Assuming she was being coerced by Epstein, he would have had every reason to tell her to conceal that from most of his associates.

"presented ... as entirely willing" is very different to "were willing"
