That makes it sound like Richard is the sole contrarian, and you five (or however many) represent all the "good guys" GNU maintainers who are endorsing this document.

I get that there is an idea floating around that maybe RMS is not great at "social stuff", but what you've demonstrated here, probably with good intentions, is the Elephant in a China Shop approach to politics that befits a regular engineer (in a Dilbert sense).

Whereas Richard's views on this and related subjects have been repeatedly demonstrated to be quite refined, apparently over decades of dealing with them.
