I will restate that I read the entire thread and made no mistake.

I am aware of this. One of the FSF's primary goals these days seems to
be exactly this sort of activity.

Given my above statement, I disagree.

This is a given, which is why I appended the following sentence:

I have not, for one second, implied that the FSFE is lacking in either
nor that the FSFE is somehow inferior to the FSF, only that the FSF
seems more atuned to the specific suggestion to which I originally
replied and hence I do not see the problem with my original comment.

We both clearly disagree with each other, and for that I am regretful,
but I would like to politely request we let this subthread die for the
benifit of the other, most likely disinterested, subscribers.

You are welcome to email me off-list if you are still unhappy.
