I feel it the same way.  This is not a campaign for freedom, but an
action to cover Debian's guilty conscience.  Tolerating non-free
software is not what the Social Contract is about.  At the end, it
might result in something like "Yes, we are distributing non-free
software, but our main section is even more free".  Except that by
removing GFDLed docs won't make it more free.

The fact that people expressed the opinion that Debian doesn't
consider non-free software as antisocial and unethical scares me a
lot.  That means that I, as a user, cannot rely on Debian's judgement
for freedom.
