right, so we have a situation where we have good reasons for moving GFDL 
docs to non-free, but we've failed to communicate these reasons to our user 

Given the knee-jerk reactions of our users exposed by this survey, we should 
probably do something thing to adress this.

Is there an overview page of arguments (and debunkments) somewhere, that we 
can point people to? Or is everyone currently on their own in finding the 
pearls of wisdom buried in long threads on mailinglists most of our users 
don't follow?

1. Encrypted mail preferred (GPG KeyID: 0x86624ABB)
2. Plain-text mail recommended since I move html and double
    format mails to a low priority folder (they're mainly spam)
