The UN’s special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhumane or
degrading treatment or punishment has said[1] exactly the same thing as me.

The PsyOps techniques that large free software communities are now using
against volunteers, minimising people's views, misquoting/gaslighting,
scapegoating, shaming and emotional blackmail do as much harm or more
than physical violence.

These have become tools-of-the-trade for the people who sought to
displace RMS
