The recent round of attacks on Stallman seem to have begun after RMS 
returned to the FSF Board.  There is some controversy over the factual 
basis for these attacks.  (In other words, there are accusations that 
the current accusations against RMS have no basis in fact and are 
basically made up.)  There was similar controversy over the events that 
led to RMS leaving the FSF Board previously.

Based on what I have seen, some of the accusations are fabricated, some 
are RMS's words twisted and taken out of context, and some are 
legitimate complaints about Stallman as a person and his past behavior.

That said, this list is supposed to be for discussion of issues related 
to the use of GPG, and RMS is not related to that, so this thread really 
should be dropped and I am only writing this so that future readers of 
the list archive will not be left hanging and thinking that that 
question was dodged.

As to your other question, I cannot speak for the motivations of other
