The FSF show their true colors (a bright shade of Prick)
The so-called “Free Software Foundation,” having vanquished their enemy from Redmond and having nothing better to do, is now launching a Denial of Service campaign against users of Apple’s products. Basically they want their minions to descend upon Apple stores everywhere and harass the store employees so that they can’t help real customers.
Here is my response to this effort:
You guys are showing the FSF’s true colors with this action. It is bad enough that you wage this campaign of lies and deceit against the iPhone (half of the reasons on your “5 reasons” list are blatant lies), but now you’re taking action directed specifically at hurting users who have chosen to support a product other than yours.
And as much as you may deny it, that is exactly what you are doing – advocating products and services that fit your particular (and greatly skewed) view of how the world should be. You aren’t revolutionaries out to overthrow the draconian monarchy. You’re more like Jehovah’s Witnesses coming to my door to peddle your own obscure brand of morality and a book that’s kind-of sort-of like a more popular one but supposedly better because it’s “free,” but not actually free just free in some pedantic sense using your own book’s definition of free. That is, you still want me to pay you for it.
Well guess what, protesting against consumers for choosing another product is about as productive as a 5 year old crying at the grocery store because they want a candy bar. You’re just going to piss off everybody else in the store, and embarrass the only people who have a vested interest in seeing you succeed.
