They have been damaging Guix and GNU project. If RMS would be really
autocratic, they would be expelled as soon as they started with public
shaming on Guix pages.

What matters for RMS is not what somebody thinks or which political
opinions they have, but rather if they are contributing to free
software, that is priority, so RMS is letting you people be. That is
not autocratic, that is kind.

Somebody else would already sue your asses for millions of dollars.
