No I did not interpret it as a defense of the patch, I understood (and
rejected) the idea that the GNU manifesto and software freedoms
*actually* talks about privacy.

It is no longer about the patch, it probably never was for me because I
don't have the American context of abortion rights.  For me it is about
your manipulative and frustrating arguments, overreach and your
wonderful ability to hold the community hostage and at the same time act
like you're the victim.

I am done engaging with you because there's only so much that a vacation
can heal.
