For gosh sakes man! Try to be polite! Any child can see that GFDL invariants violate the DFSG because they cannot be modified. Saying that someone is "outrageously abusing their position" is a powerfully insulting statement. You had better make sure that the problem isn't your inability to grasp the details of the discussion.

I certainly do not envy Manoj's position. The task of turning this firmware hoo-haw into a reasonable vote seems difficult at the very best.

Thank you, Manoj, for your work.
