Just to be clear on this: we stopped asking the FSF for comments many years ago because the FSF refused to talk to us without prior promises from us on what we would say and which terms we would use. We are unwilling to make such promises. If the FSF's policy on such things has changed, we would be pleased to know about it.
Good freaking $DEITY that's just fricking wrong, and not at all matching what the FSF is supposed to be about (or represents themselves as).
While I'd like to believe their requirements there were just so that they could try enforcing 'gnu/linux' (which is @!#*ing retarded and overreaching), their general behaviour makes me think it was beyond that.
Echoing what others have said, this frankly is a shame- FSF's goals are good and what most folk agree with, but the implementation? In need of a major refactoring in my books.
