Oh man, come on, this is silly behaviour. GNOME developers are *passionate*
about Free Software, fiercely so. We're here to make sure that Free Software
gets into the hands of normal users, not just geeks. However, we *do not*
have our minds held hostage by dogma, and dogma doesn't drive freedom for
*anyone*. We're all consenting adults, we can make our own decisions about
what's good and what's not - but don't think for a minute that GNOME, as an
organisation and social group is not pursuing a fierce Free Software agenda.
