Hmm.  By declaring himself "not on speaking terms with [me]", Didn't RMS
presumptively conclude that anything I could possibly say would not
convince him of anything, and thus he is attempting to speak for me?

Alternatively, perhaps RMS is concerned that I *might* persuade him of
something, and has decided he doesn't want to run that risk.  I find
this interpretation difficult to swallow, personally.
