Why can't they just spend 5 seconds to edit sources.list?

The GR makes only one mention of the word "support": "We will support
users of our system who develop or run non-free software."  That is,
we will let them post on debian-user.

Aside from that, there is no clause that in any way contradicts it or
removes the right of users to discuss using non-free software on
Debian on Debian lists.

I fail to see any contradiction.
