@craigmaloney can't help noticing that in this very announcement in the space of 3 paragraphs they say that:
1) they "feel his behavior has moderated" and "his thinking strengthens the work of the FSF"
2) RMS's announcement disrupted LibrePlanet and undermined FSF staff before they could be informed and consulted
3) "we take full responsibility for how badly we handled the news" implying that it's the FSF staff's fault that he did this rather than the reverse
?This is a cross-post from Twitter, its contents might suck?
we spent months planning to bring rms back because we thought his behaviour had changed and we were going to make a thoughtful, inclusive announcement but rms decided to be rms
