I'm not fond of having any of the so-called celebrities comment on
things they actually know little or nothing about. If Conan had any
worthful thing to say about Open Standards or free software, he would
have done so already.

Asking people with no or little relevance to the subject they are wanted
to issue something onto is of no relevance to me. Just because Microsoft
f. e. makes dumb people advertise their products doesn't make those
products better, only more dumb. So it'd go for our "products", as I

So, the FSFE should refrain from seeking popular persons to comment on
our terms as long as they do not have more to give to the matter despite
their popularity.

Just my 0.02,
