As Rafael points out, ESR is a complete moron. Wow. I've always thought ESR was a somewhat smart and sensible person, but it turns out he's an arrogant twat. Useful to know. Let me see, between the TLA Overlords we have RMS, who is an idealist who takes things to extremes others find uncomfortable, but is logical, consistent, coherent and tolerant. And we have ESR, who is...yes, a complete moron. I think I'll hitch myself to the Free Software wagon...

You aren't the only ones to notice. Here's an old, but informative page on Eric S. Raymond: The Emperor Has No Clothes. It appears to be out of commission at the moment, so use the cache. Personally I never cared much for him in the first place. On the other hand, I have spent a little bit of time with RMS, and while a bit odd, he came off as polite and entirely rational. Oh, and in case you haven't seen it, here's some related entertainment.
