schestowitzI like to consider myself a progressive person, and I see what everyone is saying here against Richard Stallman.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitzBut these accusations that he is misogynist or a defender of pedophilia or a defender of sexual assault are wrong.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitzHave a look at these please (and read them completely, please. I have read every single word of Selam G's medium blog posts, and out of respect for that, I would ask that you read the entirety of these two web pages before commenting.

schestowitzRichard Stallman had views on a topic which is considered controversial (sexism, prostitution, racism), and none of his views them defended pedophilia or misogyny or sexual assault, but taken out of context, they seemed that way.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitzIf you have actually read both of those web pages, you will understand what I mean. I know that even despite me telling people to read them in their entirety, some people will not. So here is a summary with things heavily copied and pasted from the sources above:Oct 09 00:25
schestowitzClaim: Richard Stallman defended sexual assaultOct 09 00:25
schestowitz    No. According to source #2: "There was a Facebook event calling for a protest regarding donations Jeffrey Epstein made to MIT. Stallman objected to the wording of the description of the event. Objecting to choices of words is something he is known for doing, he is a philosopher after all." The wording of the event was basically saying that Marvin Minsky sexually assaulted Giuffre, which Stallman disagreed with.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    The email was regarding this report by the verge: 09 00:25
-TechrightsBN/ | AI pioneer Marvin Minsky accused of sex with Epstein trafficking victim - The VergeOct 09 00:25
schestowitz        You will see in this article that Giuffre was directed by Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with Minsky. Is this equivalent to Minsky assaulting Giuffre? Think about this yourselves. If A tells B to have sex with C, C assaulted B? The Facebook post sensationalized "Giuffre being directed to have sex with Marvin" as "Marvin assaulted Giuffre". Why? It makes very little sense to me, and it made very little sense to Dr. Stallman as well. Dr. Oct 09 00:25
schestowitzStallman used to be a colleague of Marvin Minsky from what I understand, and I would also defend any colleague of mine who was wrongly accused of sexual assault by a sensationalized Facebook post. Is defending someone who is wrongly accused of being "guilty" where the principle is that "innocent until proven guilty" the wrong thing to do?Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz        To this date, it has not been confirmed that Marvin Minsky even had sex with Giuffre. Read the section on Marvin's Wikipedia article:, and you might think it is way more likely that Marvin did not have sex with Giuffre, as quoting the sources Wikipedia used (you may verify these yourselves): " There has been no allegation that sex between them took place nor a Oct 09 00:25
-TechrightsBN/ | Marvin Minsky - WikipediaOct 09 00:25
schestowitzlawsuit against Minsky's estate.[49] Minsky's widow, Gloria Rudisch, says that he could not have had sex with any of the women at Epstein's residences, as they were always together during all of the visits to Epstein's residences.[50][51] "Oct 09 00:25
schestowitzClaim: Richard Stallman defends pedophiles and pedophilia.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    No. Here is what he says (summary: he is saying Epstein is a serial rapist and should have a longer sentence)Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    (Now) Labor Secretary Acosta's plea deal for Jeffrey Epstein was not only extremely lenient, it was so lenient that it was illegal.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    I wonder whether this makes it possible to resentence him to a longer prison term.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    I disagree with some of what the article says about Epstein. Epstein is not, apparently, a pedophile, since the people he raped seem to have all been postpuberal.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    By contrast, calling him a sex offender tends to minimize his crimes, since it groups him with people who committed a spectrum of acts of varying levels of gravity. Some of them were not crimes. Some of these people didn't actually do anything to anyone.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    I think the right term for a person such as Epstein is serial rapist.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz    What he is disagreeing with is the fact that the word pedophilia has been used differently than the definition in most dictionaries.Oct 09 00:25
schestowitz 09 00:25
-TechrightsBN/ | pedophilia | Definition & Facts | BritannicaOct 09 00:25
schestowitz 09 00:25
-TechrightsBN/ | What is Pedophilia: FAQ on Pedophiles and PedophiliaOct 09 00:25
schestowitz        Both the above (which I think are some of the most reputable sources I could find online; Encyclopedia Britannica and WebMD have been around for ages and everyone consults these sources for basically everything), basically say that pedophilia is defined as sex or interest in sex by adults with prepubescent children, which they define as "generally aged 13 or younger". All the minors that Epstein seemed to have raped were above 13 years Oct 09 00:25
schestowitzof age.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz        Stallman thus says Epstein is not a pedophile, since that is not how the term is defined. He also says Epstein is a serial rapist and should be sentenced to much longer prison term, something that I personally agree with as well.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    Read the sources 1 and 2 for more information on his comments on pedophilia. They are all covered in these sources, so please just read them. I am too tired to copy-paste them over, but he is not endorsing the practice.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitzClaim: Richard Stallman is a misogynist.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    Likely, this accusation is being made because of some of the quotes and pictures that Selam G. posted. These quotes all seem to be made decades ago, with probably the most controversial one from 1985. There is no source mentioned for these quotes at all, so I don't know how Selam G. managed to get the testimonies of people who are probably 60-70 years old by now.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    The picture of the sign in front of his office did not say "also: hot ladies". This was later added by an unknown person, as mentioned in source #1.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    For the rest of the quotes, it is explained in Source #2. Again, please read both these sources in their entirety.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    The only real questionable quote seems to be this one at the end which was about 1985 apparently:Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    When I was a teen freshman, I went to a buffet lunch at an Indian restaurant in Central Square with a graduate student friend and others from the AI lab. I don't know if he and I were the last two left, but at a table with only the two of us, Richard Stallman told me of his misery and that he'd kill himself if I didn't go out with him.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    I felt bad for him and also uncomfortable and manipulated. I did not like being put in that position — suddenly responsible for an important man. What had I done to get into this situation? I decided I could not be responsible for his living or dying, and would have to accept him killing himself. I declined further contact.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    He was not a man of his word or he'd be long dead.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    - Betsy S., Bachelor's in Management Science, '85Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz    I agree that this is bad. Source #2 mentions this about this quote above:Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz        "The next story does sound inappropriate by today stardards but something that is unacceptable today could have been perfectly fine in 1985 (when it happened). Even if it had happened today, I don't think this alone could justify everything that is being done to Stallman. I say this alone because, as we've seen, the rest are lies and mis-characterizations."Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz        With which I do agree. What is more is that this kind of thing only seems to have happened in 1985 and not in the 35 years since? Stallman made a mistake once, he is not a perfect human being at all. I know a couple of high school friends who have threatened to kill themselves in order to get their way during a relationship or romance as well. Does this make them misogynists? It is terrible behaviour from Stallman, and it happened once Oct 09 00:26
schestowitzin 35 years, if it did happen (again, Selam G. mentions no source for these quotes).Oct 09 00:26
schestowitz        This personally makes me scared as well. I was once a very depressed student and during the time that I was depressed I was thinking about suicide every single day, and am sure made some comments about death or romance that made someone uncomfortable. Should I be cancelled due to that one mistake when I was not mentally well? I don't know what Stallman's life was like when he made this comment or if he was suffering from mental illness. Oct 09 00:26
schestowitzWe need to be a bit more kind. He did not sexually assault this woman, if that's what you are concerned about either. Stallman has never been accused of sexual assault or misconduct, unlike billionaires with lawyers to defend them, such as someone like Donald Trump.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitzAll in all, the way the world is headed is scaring me. Stallman even lost his home because of all this misinterpretation by tabloid "journalists" who twist the facts (see here)). What a travesty of free speech we have created with this culture that we endorse.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitzI am not a lawyer, but I think Richard Stallman should explore suing for defamation here. This entire defamation episode has cost him his job and respect in the community by people who have twisted his words.Oct 09 00:26
schestowitzNext time you see some controversy, please read both sides of the arguments and see what both sides have to say. As I said, I have read both sides, including both of Selam G.'s blog posts, in their entirety. I know that many of you will not even read the sources or even this far into this Reddit post, but if you do, you can now consider both sides when forming your opinion. Sensationalist titles of news articles or blogs do us no good in the Oct 09 00:26
schestowitzquest of procuring facts. I hate that this is what we have come to as a society.Oct 09 00:26

schestowitz-TRI run a refresh after every "major" post and then it takes 5-10 mins to complete; I made slight enhancement to the deskop-side callOct 09 14:13
Techrights-secI hope the tools are useful, but I think they are so site specific thatOct 09 14:13
Techrights-secthey can't do much more than serve as a model.  Oct 09 14:13
schestowitz-TRif they are like prototypes, like examples in some textbook, maybe someone can build a framework with these as starting pointOct 09 14:14
Techrights-secA framwork is a lot of complexity.  Gemini is simple, one-offs areOct 09 14:16
Techrights-secprobably much less work than figuring out a framework and then customizingOct 09 14:16

schestowitz-TRit this is easily reproducible on the pi side,  maybe we should have that being output to the gemini space? maybe once a week?Oct 09 14:17
schestowitz-TR*ifOct 09 14:18
Techrights-secIt should be just a matteer of adding David A Wheeler's sloccount packageOct 09 14:19
Techrights-secand then wrapping the call in a script and then pointing to the scriptOct 09 14:19
Techrights-secin a cron job.Oct 09 14:19
schestowitz-TRdo you want me to have a go at it?Oct 09 14:19
Techrights-secSure or I can, if you add the package. It should be a quick task.Oct 09 14:19

schestowitz-TRI saw some other git-centric capsules, but we have more features than themOct 09 14:22
schestowitzMost common capsules by number of working URLsOct 09 14:22
schestowitz* 10000 URLsOct 09 14:22
schestowitz* 9999 URLsOct 09 14:22
schestowitz* 9995 URLsOct 09 14:22
schestowitz* 9973 URLsOct 09 14:22
schestowitz10,000 means we get perfect fetch record; lately, no other capsule had a fidelity this high (maybe 2-3 weeks now)Oct 09 14:23
Techrights-secgemini:// 09 14:33
schestowitz-TRnice! does anything link to it yet?Oct 09 14:33
Techrights-secNot yet, I'll add a link from the Git indexOct 09 14:35
schestowitz-TRThanks, I'll link to the page nowOct 09 14:35
Techrights-secgemini:// 09 14:36
schestowitz-TRyou put it exactly where I too thought it fit bestOct 09 14:36
Techrights-secnpOct 09 14:36
Techrights-secI'll add it to Git now :)Oct 09 14:36
Techrights-secOk, cron it updated too nowOct 09 14:44
schestowitz-TRthanks a lot, I'm finalising daily links now. Today we do LUX in the EPO series, tomorrow UK/IrelandOct 09 14:44
Techrights-secThe national news sites ought to take an interest, but I have no idea how toOct 09 14:45
Techrights-secreach such understaffed and, possibly, compromised groups.Oct 09 14:45
schestowitz-TRsome did cover it around 2015, but a lot changed since thenOct 09 14:46
schestowitz-TRAlso with far fewer freedoms. Reporters are being replace by "social media gurus" and 'SPAMnils'Oct 09 14:47
Techrights-secA lot fewer reporters since 2015Oct 09 14:47
Techrights-sec... on any beat Oct 09 14:47
schestowitz-TRif nobody else covers it, then we have a sort of de facto 'monopoly' on this kind of information so I learned to live with it despite is being infuriating how media and politicians stonewallOct 09 14:52
Techrights-secMost seem to be churnalists or stenographersOct 09 14:53
Techrights-secYes, having a monopoly raises the visibility of the site, but the Oct 09 14:53
Techrights-secmainstream press reaches the non-technical audiencesOct 09 14:53
schestowitz-TRMSM is needed (still) for outrage and, thus, major changeOct 09 14:54
