I would also like to say that I have tried to make my stepping-away as 
painless and as friendly as possible.  I don't want to see ill will 
erupt in our community.  I like this community.  If anyone turns this 
into an occasion to launch a political flamewar, I will be very sad. 
Please don't do that.

My reasons for stepping away are simple.  I don't like RMS.  I think he 
is unkind.  I don't want to be associated with anything where he's in a 
position of authority.  It really is that simple.  It has nothing to do 
with politics, "cancel culture", or anything else like that.

Kindness counts.  Let's practice some.  :)
