I empathize with that point of view but maybe we (and by we, I mean
everyone in society, including you and me) should just cut them some
slack. I mean we're all just people and we all have our idiosyncrasies
(even if sometimes some of us seem to be more idiosyncratic than others!).

Perhaps if all of us, those for Free Software and those against, separated
the message from the person, we might all be able to have healthy
conversations instead of being caught up with a personality war. This is a
difficult task for sure but it's necessary.
