These fishing analogies you keep using really aren't the best metaphors, imo. Can you phrase it in terms of sports or movies?
Or better yet, drop the analogies, since we aren't children; this is our field, we basically understand the scenario. Are cellphone technology providers to be chastised for "baiting" me into use one, while not providing free/libre firmware (even if the the OS is free), or are they to be thanked for allowing people to be able to call an ambulance when they are having a heart attack on a camping trip? I'll take the freedom to survive in that scenario.
If the firmware blobs are a copyright problem, by all means say so plainly. But to state that the Linux developers have set a trap for users, is low.
