Oh no. It's arguably silly argument: why do developers have to care of some stinky users -- I mean exactly those who seek to "make closed source" out of free software?
You're mixing up my freedom to walk the street at night and robber's "feedom" to approach me and gently/harshly get me ripped.
So *please* don't repeat that horrible nonsense evaporating from uneducated and self-proud BSD (sub)circles -- heck, a child gets it better than seemingly smart people these days! :-(
Don't get me wrong, I'm no Linux/FSF/RMS addict (rather user of the product/works/concepts) -- I'm just so bored with folks who can see only one level through when the next one is so obvious but still spreading this FUD...
