Most companies, at least from a revenue standpoint, make money from products. Who do you think is paying for the ads? Even if you assume the average company spends 10% of revenue on ads (Which is a really high number, I think), you have ten times as many companies producing that making money from advertising (10/11ths of the revenue accruing to producers, with 1/11th going to advertisers. Yes, I know 1/11th is getting counted twice, but since it's a result of production twice, I think it's appropriate).

Considering your sig equates anti-gun with pro-rape, your opposition to my logic is unsurprising.

Labeling your opponent, then arguing based on that label is neither a fair, nor reasonable approach. If you don't agree with how someone labels them self, then argue against that label. Don't just unilaterally change it, then harp on that change.

And if you want to ban everything that protects rapists, start with condoms. I look forward to your "pro-condom is pro-rape" campaign.

The problem I personally have with it is, traditionally, if you "invent" something, you get to name it. Other people can complain, and say that your name is inaccurate, but FSF is trying to replace the name being used. They've done this in the past, as noted by others. I'd much rather say "'Secure Boot' is a load of horse shit" than start calling it "HorseShit Boot."
