An opinion is expressed (which is OK)
but also some wrong statement appear
(which is not OK).
Besides an inaccurate language is used
(which at least to my mind is not helpful
though funny in a certain view).

not true. I know that Werner is the author of gpg, Peter
is the author of gnu-pascal. These two and all others of the
fsfe I know have contributed lots of stuff to several
free software projects.

I think Villa Vogelsand is not a property of the fsfe.
To my knowldge it is even not the property of any member
of the fsfe.

btw, unfortunately kernel hackers can't eat computers - they
need a job as well.

I don't think anyone is trying to kid here.
As far as I see, accrurate questions and discussion
have always been answered or argued accurately.
