"In most ways, this is a typical enforcement action for the FSF: we want to resolve this situation as amicably as possible. We have not sued Apple, nor have we sent them any legal demand that they remove the programs from the App Store."

There was no lawsuit. You seem to be engaged in wishful thinking and speculation and basing your arguments on your dislike of FSF. Apple has zero grounds for a contempt charge based on a mere license violation notice.

But they were talking to apple, and decided to not wait for the results but publicly damn them. I think that's stupid - esp considering the talks were (some ppl said) constructive.

You are free to criticize their approach and they have cited their reasons for taking this approach and outcome was going to be exactly the same regardless of the approach in this case but nevertheless lefty who really should be knowing better is making an incorrect claim about a lawsuit. That is a dent on his credibility.
