> it also has far less of an impact on his life or his goals than resigning from the FSF would

He did resign from the FSF as well.


This is a very sad situation. I hope that the FSF does not lose him forever.

This is a serious question: has he even contributed anything of substance to the FSF or GNU project within the past decade or two? Has he done much of anything besides give talks scrutinizing non free software?

Advocacy is a substantial part of what the FSF does.

He can keep on coding and submitting PRs.
