Free Software does not force you to contribute, in any sense. Just using the
Free Software is a huge contribution. What was the initiating point for Free
Software development? Help, Humanity, Open Sharing, no restrictions and cost

The author seems really mad over his/her own-dig reasons, and tried to
connect things well for the article presentations. I am against it.
