It is easy.

Freedom is ability to act _without_ taking into consideration what other people 

In reality it rarely exists, so it's like limit in math.

I _am_ a part of the audience. I do _not_ accept GNU/FSF definition of freedom. 
There is _no_ formal requirement to accept FSF/GNU definition of freedom in 
order to become part of the audience.

By the way, when I mentioned METIS, I said it was not quite free. Still, since 
_I_ can use is _without_ asking permission and _without_ paying money, for _me_ 
it is free.
