I am sure you can find cases where that is not true. Not everyone speaking of "open source" speaks of "OSI Certified Open Source" or whatever the cumbersome phrase is.

Still, the original thread was never about this [...]

Yes, please someone make concrete suggestions on the original point. It is easy to write "we should work together" but harder to write how. If you want to argue on wording, please do it directly from now. I think most people know most other participant's positions.

I think some
people are too sensitive on that topic.

There are reasons. For FSF's, please see "We speak about free software" on their site.

And for what its worth, the free problem exist in german, too. Just as
a side node.

Did "kostenlos" and "gratis" become obsolete in German?

   much better if Mail-Followup-To would become a real standard :-/

Please, write productive things instead of trying to fan two flames with "if only... *sigh*". I am usually quite admiring of your work, but this email wasn't as good as normal :-/
