I think I would have to consider 'control' to be a ethical issue especially 
considering what it can lead to. sony rootkit anyone....

Great discussion btw! Made me rethink my usage a bit. I went down to my ISP and 
demanded they switch to free software since I am technically a "user" but I do 
not think I had much impact. I guess I will have to do without internet now. :( 

Also, my internet traffic is routed across numerous switches/routers/machines 
and I am sure those are probably non-free so not sure where to draw the line in 
that regard. Should I not eat at mcDonalds until they remove the non-free 
software from the building? 

Webmail is(was) a borderline issue with me but after thinking it over and over 
and over I have come to the realization that I am promoting it and may be 
contributing to the next "google" or "microsoft" so I think it is wrong to do 
so. I will be changing, thanks for the yummy thought process...
