For the most part, I think you are right: making a link to a site does
not endorse most aspects of how the site operates.

However, linking to the site and suggesting people do a certain job
with the site does make one very specific statement about the site.
It says that such use of the site is something we approve of.

If such use of the site requires running nonfree softare on your machine,
we shouldn't say we approve of that.
