Richard is a person who is principled; a rarity it seems. I like him.

I think his contributions to open source from 
a conceptual and philosophical point of view were, and are good and valid for

life, and turned it in to a worldview, rather than merely a simple set 
of philosophical principals around software development.  That is where he went 
off the rails, and what turned him into a crazy person.
