Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

It is all okay. At least here we can discuss and flame whatever we want. That is to say, at least here the editorial doesn't push GNU/FSF-style censorship, exclusion, and demonization of alternative views.

It's not the same thing at all. Here is a neutral blog that is not involved in software creation at all.
Call me when you see GNU adverts on a Microsoft site, or when you can buy Windows in an Apple shop ==> "censorship, exclusion, and demonization of alternative views."
You don't understand it at all. The FSF present their view because they have one. They're not a neutral party blogging about everything and anything.
