no, i just don't understand why bigots have to stick their noses in to other
people's business.

it's really really simple.  if you don't want to use non-free software, then
don't.  end of story.  no need to enforce your views on everyone else, no need
to get upset if other people make different choices, just make your own choice
and mind your own business.

your own good, that they have the best interests at heart of the people they're

at least have the guts to be honest about what you're doing.
