Note that this is exactly the opposite of what I've taken to be your
central thesis: that having multiple points of view damages the free
software community. I've already explained why I disagree with this, so
I wont do so again. But you might be interested in looking back through
the archives for discussions with and about OSI and the OSD. I think
those discussions covered much of the same ground.
When I say that I respect the opinion of someone else; it does not mean
that I agree with it. I was just upset to read from the previous post
(which was not yours) that "everyone with a straight face" must disagree
with me (about the freeness of the GFDL); while the opinion I defend is
just the opinion of the FSF, the creator of the word "free software".
This is more insulting than argumenting. I still think it will be much
better for the free software community to have a common definition but
as I believe in free speech I admit that some people might not agree.
