   Earlier in this thread, I sent the message below (last paragraph). I
   want to state that I have not been following the current issue of
   Stallman's statements closely, nor have I been following the Epstein
   case closely.
   I am just a young woman who got involved in the Free Software movement,
   because I want to help people attain freedom. Over the past decade I
   have admired the work of Stallman and the FSF community. So much good
   has come out of these efforts. I personally, have been able to reach a
   freedom that I could only dream about as a little girl, because of free
   I do not wish to see us fight over things that would hurt the movement,
   and I let my personal feelings get the best of me. I am the type of
   person that believes all social issues are connected and really just
   one issue. So the fighting, will only hurt us all.
   Regardless of Stallman's resignation, I still see him at the heart of
   the movement, but I also believe that the rest of us bear the
   responsibility of carrying forth the message of freedom in technology
   for protecting the freedoms of people. Furthermore, it is our
   responsibility to see into the future and build a greater foundation of
   principles and software to address more social issues.
   I hope the community can agree with me on the point that we need
   greater compassion and positivity continuing forward. Below is the
   message I originally sent, for transparency of my actions.
   If it is true that Stallman called these victims as willing. I entirely
   agree with Marry-Anne. The Free Software movement already lacks female
   support and these comments will only push more women away. I as a woman
   who has also suffered harrassment as a child and as an adult, do not
   want a leader who says things that hurt women. Stallman, you cannot do
   this. We as members must be strong and have someone else represent us
   period. FSF should take a stand and provide support for women and
   actively invite women to a space where we know we are supported,
   believed in and respected.

     By me? No. I am sorry the message that campaigned against Richard by
     ANNE WOLF made such a bad impression of him on people that have not
     investigated the issue.

     That would be nice. Lets!
