He doesn't support free culture, only free software. I don't see how that is the "highest pirate standards", if everyone thought like RMS we wouldn't be allowed to do remixes (No Derivatives = No Remixes); we wouldn't be able to share videos using the methods of our choosing we would be locked down to only the methods the artist feels is acceptable (contractual DRM).

I don't get where the confusion is here: He is free to support us however he wants, but don't expect me to sacrifice my morals just because you think he is this god-man. For the record, I have no pirated movies or software on my computer either. I do run http://tuebl.ca (which isn't hosted on my computer) and I do a lot of good with it, helping charities, helping people access knowledge, and getting kids into reading. All of our books use the EPUB standard which is libre/gratis.  I wouldn't force users to not use calibre or some other software to convert their books into kindle format or something else.

When you start trying to put controls on things, you are hurting the commons.

I wish we, as a collective, could do a better job when it is time to support somebody who's not only giving us free help and expertise, but is also trying to live to the highest pirate standards. Besides: Isn't Richard Stallman the only person in the world (or one of the very few) who doesn't have any piece of pirated software in any of his electronic devices? If only for that reason, we should do our best to have him in our side! :)
