Perhaps some might be seeing Richard as the FSF too quickly and not giving due regard what he is actually saying about this in the reactions to what he's putting forward. How he's defined "dodgy links" really does not seem all that unreasonable or idealistic, because it takes into account the important point that some members of the community might be excluded unless they sacrifice their principles. I don't think it's necessary to agree with *all* the ethics of the FSF to concede that this is a fair concern for Richard to be putting forward for discussion.

It seems strange (at best) that anyone would see it as nonconstructive for us to actively seek to ensure we have a strong cooperative relationship with the FSF community, where this is possible. Given that we are branded as a free desktop software community, this seems like something we ought to be taking more seriously. 

My point is merely that my general impression is that the people who have disagreed during this discussion understand the nuances of what is being discussed.
