Well, if it wasn't authentic, whoever wrote it did a DAMN good job of
imitating rms's ideas, values, speech patterns, and arrogance.  Don't get
the wrong idea... I support this effort 100% -- but he still manages to
piss me off 100% of the time with some of his qualifications and caveats.
The guy seems to have no idea that word definitions and the ideas they
describe can sometimes overlap.  He's just too damn rigid and unwavering.
Other than that, I like the guy. :)
