So, what do you say to someone which is spreading FUD or is an obvious troll? Like this:
Everyone I know does not believe in the DRM consipiracy theories either, so I am not alone.
Ad populum. Or this:
DRM is a problem manufactured by the FSF
Kill the messenger. Again in this:
I for one, would like to know what percentage of people in the real world would consider DRM a problem.
Ad populum again. Or even worse, this:
There is nothing wrong with DRM.
Blanket statement. And this?
A manufacturer has every right to incorporate any kind of technology into his device and offer it for sale, as long as it does not break any laws.
Excusation non petita, accusatio manifesta. Finally this:
But, do not characterize legitimate, law abiding, job providing, and upstanding members of our society as evil abusers of rights that you do not have.
Appeal to emotion. I'd say the message is a troll, even if the person is a cartesian thinker.
