  This post hould be named "Stahlman on the Stump Again" to get the full
flavor of his galloping charge into the night.  What nonsense.  To
complain about Richard's thoughtful paper, obviously written to encourage
informed discourse, simply to complain because it discusses a subject that
Stallman thinks he has some more internalized and scandalized version, is
pathetic nonsense.
