    Do you understand that the many -isms that negatively impact GNOME and 
    open source in general

If you want to talk about the larger practice that GNOME is part of,
please speak of "free software".  The free software movement campaigns
for a particular aspect of human rights, in the field of computing.
OPW campaings for a different aspect of human rights, but is based on
the same attitude that human rights are important.

The slogan "open source" was launched so as to reject that attitude.
It's not a good fit for OPW or for GNOME.
