Thanks you for making it clear that you were referring to these and not
to the CSAIL issue. I see you have collected almost all of them, I
really don't think there are "many more", although I must confess that I
don't really keep track or search for them.

People evolve and grow, until the last day. When I look back into my
past to around beta release, I compare that with the present version of
me, and I can see a better person. And I hope the development of my
personality will never stop, so that there will always be an improved
new release of myself.

I would really have felt much happier if you had not forgotten to
include the last of Richard's posts among the links. The one that shows
he has gained knowledge:

Many years ago I posted that I could not see anything wrong about sex
between an adult and a child, if the child accepted it.

Through personal conversations in recent years, I've learned to
understand how sex with a child can harm per psychologically. This
changed my mind about the matter: I think adults should not do that. I
am grateful for the conversations that enabled me to understand why.

I have deleted the links to the cheap press that followed below because
I really think that at this point it would be difficult to find a single
human being in tech that still hasn't heard about it. There is much
serious press I could link, but I really don't want to search for that
right now, and people already know about those too, anyway.

If some time you would like to talk to me, I'd be glad. After all, we
have two things in common. One is gender, and the other one is that we
were both recruited by RMS. For you, it happened when there was still
little o zero talk about the inclusion of women in tech, which in a way
shows Richard's vision and respect for women. For me, it happened much

All the best,
