It was not intended an appeal to authority, rather pointing out the severity of this discussion.

This group's earlier declairation that the GNU FDL is non-free caused a rift in the community.  Further declaring the AGPLv3 DSFG non-free would widen that rift and, as this is a software license, will alienate an even larger segment of the free software community from the Debian project.  This divide is troubling and the only reason why I resubscribed.
