Don’t pile on Stallman

So Richard Stallman (RMS, father of the free software movement) publishes some guidelines about booking him as a speaker.  The “rider” is excessive in it’s detail and that is pushing several people to poke fun at it.  Before you jump on that bandwagon, try writing down your requirements in the same level of detail and see if it reads the same.  Write every preference, situation and detail you can think of, colored through the lens of your staunch beliefs.

That said, does it sound so odd anymore?
