As I say, unfortunate but understandable.  Let's just be sure
that we all realize that we're not opponents on anything here,
but merely have somewhat different ideas on how to reach the
endpoint that we all desire.

Don't feel so; we're not taking this position to gain any sense
of superiority or anything.  It's what our stance requires, as
is your position what your stance requires.

I hope this doesn't mean that you're planning to unsubscribe
from the seul-edu mailing list.  I was mildly unhappy when
Hilaire Fernandes did so.  Just because the FSF point of view
isn't exactly the SEUL/edu one doesn't mean that we shouldn't be
listening and talking to each other.
