It is interesting to note that both Joey and Manoj both interpret your GR the
same way as me, and even Overfiend recent post confort me in that opinion.

Maybe, just maybe, it could be that you are the one who is wrong in this, and
even though i said that you where nit-picking and i feel that your GR wording
is trying to disguise the non-freeness of firmware with clever word-chosing, i
didn't insult you in the way you did above. 

You are not able to convince with rational arguments, so resort to insult
against people not thinking your way, how sad.
