@cwebber I could almost see a reasonable version of this email where rms wasn't being shitty. Literally just "Hey this is some volunteers deciding to do this and not a formal GNU program, you won't lose your maintainership status if you decide to reject the social contract" But that's just a yikes.
RMS splitbraining himself on "GNU is a political project meant from the start to fight the injustice in software" and "gnu totally isn't a political project" tho.
Nothing like a top-down dictation that only a top-down form of governance is allowed https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gnu-misc-discuss/2020-02/msg00014.html
This was sent in response to https://wiki.gnu.tools/git/gnu-tools-wiki/tree/code/sc-email.txt which was made by a number of GNU maintainers. I'll say that I don't think that proposed social contract is even too radical, so that makes the response feel more extreme.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as resigned, is in fact, fired/resigned, or as I've recently taken to calling it fired but saying I resigned
Resigned is not an action in itself, but rather another free component of a fully functional firing system put into operation due to me being a twat, lots of people calling me out for being a twat, and my refusal to stop being a twat comprising a full reason for firing me as defined by everyone.
