Yes. Maelle already contacted them about it, they just ignored us…

You actually read comments on 01net ?! They're always useless FUD and
trolls… the point made is clear: there is some kind of illegal
advertising of proprietary software. We think that's not fair--and
actually we don't target Adobe at all (we never mention them in our
petition I believe), but our governments!

If I were you, I would just not pay attention to comments there :)
