Your (rather impolite) statement is directly contradicted by pro-GPLv3 people in this very thread acknowledging that indeed the FSF wants to dictate certain aspects of how the hardware is made. (by forbidding GPLv3 on such hardware)
My statement was directly referenced to the authors of GPLv3, not to your paraphrasing of "pro-GPLv3 people". Moreover, I never suggested that the FSF didn't want to restrict certain aspects of the hardware design.
All I said was that the FSF has clearly stated it has neither the intention nor the desire to restrict the use of ROMs, which had been falsely implied above. (This is also backed up by a direct quote from Eben Moglen in another post of mine above.)
If you find it impolite to point out that the facts are being distorted by certain posters, I find the distortion itself even more impolite.
