The GNU Project must never invite people to sign in to a GNU activity
using a Gmail or Facebook account.  To include those in a specific
list of a few options would be to give Gmail, or Facebook,
respectively, a special privileged position -- in effect promoting
Gmail or Facebook.  That would be wrong.

We will not _punish_ or _reject_ people just for using those
sites, but that is a different (though related) question.
