Yet it maintains a blacklist of common GNU/Linux distros and labels them
as "unethical", even if these distros (like Debian and Fedora) have a
clear policy to exclude anything non-free from their main repositories.

I am certain that these distro maintainers act in good faith if they
mention (for example) CPU microcode for Spectre mitigation in their
documentation, even if that microcode isn't free software.
