I don't think there's any hatred to Richard's advocacy. But at the
moment he talks of "our collaboration" he's making the mistake of
believing that everyone who collaborates in free software does so
motivated by the goals of the free software movement. It's quite
possible to collaborate with Emacs (for example) just because you want
a better Emacs for your own selfish reasons.
