i’m not saying RMS is wrong at all. all i’m saying is that if the FSF wants to reach more people, a certain amount of pragmatism is required.

it’s not about his thinking, it’s about his public image and how it reflects on the FSF. he’s controversial, and a controversial leader is exactly not what the FSF needs

see? nothing about profanity, and the drugs category isn’t nearly as widely applicable as sexy_peach makes it out to be. plus, you’re not banned from the game proper, you’re only banned from online play. you can still play your singleplayer worlds. and i know microsoft bad yadda yadda yadda but some people deserve to have their online privileges revoked. and the only people that are objecting to all this (that have read the announcement) are nazis and edgelords, precisely the kind of people that shouldn’t be playing online in the first place.
