Wish there was more focus given to the people who were forced to work for him and what they had to endure.

Unfortunately outrage drives far more clicks than empathy and sympathy combined.

I also think that the focus on his comments, as opposed to actions, is an intentional rhetorical strategy that is being employed by his die-hards to deflect from the more heinous stuff that's been alleged.

You could very well be correct. I was just generalizing.

I’m not much for tech or computers so had never heard of Stallman prior to this week on raddle. Judging by what a piece of shit he seems to be, I’m not particularly interested in learning more.

Sure, I was saying in addition to your saying, not against your saying.

That's understandable. He has genuinely done a lot within that space to make things like this website possible. But it just goes to show, someone can do good works, and still do terrible unforgivable things, and ultimately outlive their own usefulness to those good works. At this point, it's just undeniable he needs to step back, if he cares about the project more than his own ego. But he's going to double down probably, because ultimately his actions were about his ego in no small part.

Any chance at growth, change, accounting for the past, grows smaller with each day he does this. his own soul will have to withstand that, but it pales in comparison to what he put people through in his daily life interactions.

Sometimes I think people double down like this, because they feel it's too late for them to change, and so they fear that and engineer a psychology around avoiding or negating that possibility.
