GNU means GNU's Not U: Stallman insists he's still Chief GNUisance while 18 maintainers want him out as leader

RMS has been at the head for long enough. It is time for him for step down and let new blood run the show.

Why?

And more importantly; much much much more importantly, who?

Do you know anyone with the same determination and downright stubbornness to keep the project going without compromising core principles for a little bit of current political gain? Who won't kowtow to SJW's et al just for some peace and quiet, even when that may mean the death of the project? Who will speak what they believe, popular or #sowrongheshoulddie?

Is there anyone out there you're willing to nominate who will do as much as RMS has done for the project, and without destroying it? (I'm imagining Mr Torvalds stepping down and by a horrible series of events pottything getting the reins of the kernel - here we stand at a point where something as bad could happen to GNU etc)

Who do you have in mind?
