"""Summary: The rumour mill may still be humming along; but against all odds — as Chief GNUisance of the GNU Project — Stallman keeps fighting the good fight"""

Calling the body of questionable posts by RMS a "rumor mill" seems rather disingenuous.

I have always been a great admirer of RMS, particularly of his no compromise stance in ethical matters. I hope he can learn from this and turn this episode into something more positive for all involved, but seeing this, I will not hold my breath.


I think the author intended for "rumor mill" to refer to posts about RMS, not by RMS.

I haven't seen any posts about this issue that don't address direct quotes and/or posts by RMS directly. I wouldn't call that a "rumor mill". Granted, I have not read everything written about the subject.

I don't know him personally, but I've traded email with him recently. He clearly is maintaining his laser-like focus on the same cause he's been focused on for decades, which I greatly admire.

Didn't really expect less, but being the target of a vicious attack does sometimes break people.
