Emacs is part of the GNU project, so it is based on the FSF's values
and views.  If you start a project, you can run it as you wish.

This list is for discussion about Emacs development.  Correct me if
I'm mistaken, but it sounds like you're saying you are unwilling to
contribute code to Emacs.

You are under no obligation to contribute, but if you aren't going to,
the value of what you say here is somewhat reduced.
