@CatoMinor3 @steveHNH @fsf So the MIT blurb says Minsky was accused of "***ault" because that's a legal term for *** with a minor being trafficked. RMS takes issue because it has connotations of violence and nit-picks that she probably seemed eager to sleep with Minsky. That nit-pick discussion is awkward.
