You'll probably get a reply eventually -- RMS gets a LOT of mail and
sometimes it takes him a while to answer (I've seen a reply to a thread
also addressed to him personally wind up on a mailing list months after
the original post).
However, I suspect you'll find him to be a moron and fucking yank. E.g.
~ I despise Nazism, but I oppose censorship of Nazi views, or any

I suspect that he'll feel the same way about people with particular
political views he despises being involved in Free Software projects.
