Software projects on this planet Earth are mostly started by private
individuals, and there are private companies starting software

It is true that one who is not creator of such, normally cannot
participate in substantial changes of such software projects,
especially, it is impossible to just kick out the founder of the
project. It is ridiculous even to think of that, as that is indication
of criminal mind. It is like kicking out the home owner out of his own

GNU project consists of many pieces of software and you are free to
contribute and change and propose whatever you wish.

Right now you are only making a point that you don't find it good that
RMS is founder of the project, all that due to a joke, that is somehow
waste of time.
