That is exaggeration. It is not related to any "cult of
personality". It is related to free software and fundamental respect
of founder of the FSF and free software philosophy.

Your statement I find twisted and not honest. I don't believe you.

What we have here at hand is a non-profit foundation, foundation
founded by Richard Stallman, where they are supposed to show respect
to founder and his speech should be by default.

It is matter of civilized behavior. Not matter of invitations.

When couple is getting married, or getting a child, by default they
call parents. That is in civilized families. They don't "publish"
somewhere else how their parents are free to call them.

This kind of public un-support on this mailing list is only harming
the FSF. 

Me personally, I see that as personal vendetta and hate by
disrespectful individuals. They do not represent public, though they
incite conflict with public reading this mailing list. Nobody can know
their personal issues and reasons, they are masking it with whatever
other statements, in this example "cult of personality" -- which is
complete nonsense.


Take action in Free Software Foundation campaigns:

In support of Richard M. Stallman
