I was replying to EXACTLY what I quoted before my reply: no more, no less.  
When I used the words, in my reply, "the two", it should not have required 
clairvoyance, but simple reading, to see that I was referring to the concepts 
"Free Software" (as opposed to) "Open Source" that were in the quote.

You jumped to a conclusion, that's all.
