I can only stand with this letter. Those "activist" violate almost every
rule in their attacks. They are hypocrites who hide under the term of
freedom and don't accept freedom of speech, if it is not "their speech".
But I make a step back and do a further comment: I want politics out of
free software. Free Software is (for me) free access to technology,
liberation from hegemony of monopolies. Of course it can clash with
politics if that tries to "limit" technology (see all these defenses
into spying, content publishing, censorship). But it should not tell
people hat to hate or what not to say: it should concentrate on code,
technology and access to it.
Remember how many voices there were back then against "evil Microsoft"
But how many raise their voices today against Chrome?
Two weights, two measures.
