Have fun shunning yourself, then. You've used proprietary software
thousands of times today. By writing this email you've knowingly used
proprietary software (I've just saw a local gateway with juniper
as part of the name).

I see. "You've used proprietary software at some point in the past,
hence you're untouchable to us henceforth, forever". If that's what
you're saying you're not merely religious, you're a fanatic.

And I don't mean that in a good (software jihadi) way.
