So, I only knew Stallman as a guy who Believed A Lot Of Things That I Also Believe In, until it turned out he was Pretty Gross Privately.
I have no problems being pro-privacy and pro-FOSS, but he has totally turned off a lot of people from these things and I imagine it will be harder. Like, it's kinda hard to say "Oh, check out r/StallmanWasRight for a bunch of good examples of this stuff" now.
I still hold these beliefs and want to evangelize like an annoying piece of shit, but it seems like it'll be difficult-er. Is there a more precise word for this problem, and how others deal with it?
(Note: I know he isn't the only person who has believed these things but he's definitely a figure that'll come up if anybody spends 5 minutes looking into it...)
