Enough, already! There's more to life than these petty issues, so
please stop beating them to beyond death.

If you need to focus your energies on something, please try a more
constructive approach, like discussing how to convince a corporate IT
dept. To allow you to use Linux on your laptop (ours even considers
GPLed programs unauthorized / illegal). But if you do, please do so in
a new thread.

This one has been 'used' by many approaches that can safely be
suffixed with 'nazi'.

There, I said it.  It should die now.
