The only people I've met who are hostile towards free as in freedom software are capitalists in the software industry. They objections are usually something like, "How will my business survive if someone makes a libre version of my app?" If their business relies on people paying them for something that could be done for free, then their business doesn't deserve to exist.

There are some other people who hate it because they think it's low quality or virus infected, but usually those people are referring to free as in beer software.

Careful, Best Buy LP will follow you into the bathroom if they see you concealing. Make damn sure you're in a blind spot before you conceal. If you can get it from a store with less aggressive LP, I would do that.

I said I don't attack people in memes. I attack the fuck out of ideology.

I'll give you that, then. But it's not hard to read between the lines, especially when you post them right after arguing with someone of said ideology. You did the same thing after arguing with a transhumanist, IIRC. It's pretty obvious that you're posting them to spite the other person.

You said that you didn't attack people's ideologies in memes. I provided three instances of you doing exactly that. Whether or not I do the same thing is irrelevant, especially since I never claimed not to.

And, for the record, I didn't post mine on the heels of an argument with someone in order to put their ideology on blast, like you did.

Looks good; the loophole is closed. Though I think there are other unclear or irrelevant parts of the ToS that need rewording. If the rules are unclear, then these arguments will crop up whenever people disagree on the interpretation of the rules. So, we ought to make them impossible to non-deliberately misinterpret. If you want, I can edit it to clarify certain points, without changing any of the rules. I'll post the edited version here, for peer review.

Also, for the record, what is the policy regarding voting on issues? I started this discussion thread, but no decision was ever made on whether or not to call votes on issues, because we never called a vote because none of the admins even clarified what the policy for these proposals are.
