   These days, spam is a huge percentage of all email and the open
   source mailing lists are no exception.  In order to allow anyone to
   report problems and ask for help many OSS mailing lists don't
   require you to subscribe before posting... that means that someone
   has to go through and look through the spam to find the messages
   that should be forwarded to the list.

In the GNU Project, we advocate free software, not open source.  "Open
source" is the slogan of a movement that was formed specifically to
reject (and hush up) our philosophy, so we never use that term here
except to explain the difference between the two movements.  See

As representatives of the GNU project it makes it even more important
that we clearly state that we and the work we do is not part of a
movement that was created to silence us.
