Be angry or don't be angry.  They hoard software, and when I and other
say we have no interest in helping you give in to them, you get angry
at us!  If you want to be angry, then be angry at the software
hoarders.  If you don't want to be angry at all, then don't be--but
that means you can't go being upset because we object to nonfree
software, and using Debian to advance the goals of the software

It might make your life easier in the short-term to give in to the
software hoarders.  I decided a long time ago that it was more
important to me to make the world a better place than to focus on my
own short-term gain, and so I do everything I can to avoid giving in
to the software hoarders.
