Is what a troll would say.

But here's why I think you sound like a troll

1 - An accusing tone.
1a - Especially on a product which has no cost.

2 - Very general accusations.

3 - Slurring many groups together in order  to antagonize the greatest
amount of people.
3a - SIG's, Red Hat employees, etc...

If you are not a troll, then it might be nice to try changing the way
you write your emails, because you certainly sound like one.  If you
change the way your write your emails, you might get much more done,
in a much faster timeframe.
