RS: Short for laughs. Used by Brazilians in the same context as LOL. Other terms used are Huahuehuahue and kkkkk.
Richard Stallman never liked misunderstandings. For something on the FSF site there is a word glossary that they advise not to use, because they lead to confusion or because they have assumptions that are not entirely valid. But this article does not talk about this kind of misunderstanding, but about one in particular that occurred while giving a conference in Brazil.
This is the 22 minute extended video. The first 15 minutes are talk (in case any of you want to hear it) and he was giving it in English because the organizers told him that the language of the talk could be or in english or spanish (and he chose English because it is his native language). To the 15 minutes of the video (it is not known after how many minutes of talk), an organizer tells him on behalf of some that there are people who do not understand what he had said and asks if you can speak in spanish.
As? The organizer believed that people would understand English and it was not so. Stallman asks how many did not understand, and in the video it is not seen, but they should have raised their hands many people ……………… ..this gets ugly. Richard does not know what to do and people made to laugh.
Then ask how many would understand the talk if he gave it in Spanish. Many more they must have raised their handsI reiterate, lThe conference was in Brazil). Stallman says in Spanish «I think I should continue in Spanish, but I cannot repeat what I said (applause from the people). IT IS A TOTAL FAILURE. It's too late, it's total failure, not seriousness THEY WILL UNDERSTAND ANYTHING (rsrsrsrs of the people) "
(Diazepan's note: Is there anyone of you, besides me, who saw the first 15 minutes? Did you say something that has not been said before in other conferences or in other interviews or on other internet sites?)
It's too late, it's totally useless. It is already a total failure. Abandonment (rsrsrsrsrs) Because it's totally useless. THEY HAVE ALREADY LOST THE IMPORTANT PART (huahuehuahue) I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO. It is that they have not understood, it is too late. And suddenly one of the spectators begins to say «Gibe, Gibe»To which, enraged and hitting the microphone against the table, he shouts«IT'S TOO LATE, WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?»
(Note from Diazepan: Someone from / g / he made this gif, and I burst out laughing)
After displaying his frustration and venting, he tells a guy to turn off the camera and does not want recordings of this talk to be published (including the video they are watching) and continues the talk under the insistence of the public.
Ok, I admit that I laughed but then i felt guilty (yes, even having laughed at the gif). To me, as a person affected by Asperger syndrome, it makes me very angry let me talk and not pay attention, and so I can experience Richard's anger. Now, all of this was the result of false assumptions that give rise to misunderstandings. First: If you are giving a conference in Latin America, and RMS is told that he can give the talk in English if he wants to, it is assumed that the public not only knows english (something fundamental), but known the terms Richard uses. I mean the specialized terminology of the technological environment. Second, and this goes for any organizer: If after 10 minutes of talk, you realize that the choice of language was not appropriate, You shit. Once the talk takes hold, Richard can't be stopped. Third and most important: Stallman will never know anything about League of Legends, so going around saying "Gibe, gibe" only serves to troll and annoy even more.
That's it. Happy new Mayan cycle and I leave you with this email with the necessary requirements for RMS to speak in your city. Make sure you read it well if you want him to give a talk in your town and these things don't happen
