So much wrong with the post. Thinking "they" shouldn't be used as a gender neutral pronoun, because its confusing given it already serves as a third person pronoun, isn't transphobic ...

At any rate you didn't explain why, there were facts about Richard Stallman presented in a way to make them seem bad without the adequate reasoning

There doesn't seem to be much of a case for these accusations of “intolerance”, “hate” and “bigotry” in the letter or the appendix.

There is a ridiculous defense of “inaccurate portrayal” of Minsky case, then RMS's very stupid comments on sex with minors, but with only later added note about him recanting those comments, then the pro-abortion comments. So, “intolerance”, “hate” and “bigotry”?

Also, how can you claim that you support diversity while literally banning anyone who voices a dissenting opinion...? The entire point of free software is that we can all speak our minds, and we are all free to go elsewhere if we disagree. PLEASE stop attacking those principles.

And if you're doing this for the FSF...why was no attempt made to communicate about this letter to the general FSF membership? Why are you only trying to gather signatures from random Twitter users rather than actual FSF members...?

Come on now, are you fully aware of what you are asking people to sign? For starters: if there is any truth to the claims, the open letter is doing an extremely poor job of proving it.

Where did this letter even come from...? I tried to ask that on GitHub but they banned me for it...
