Labeling people and giving them various identifications is for me not
well mannered.

Hypothetical cases:

Somebody may not know anything about the free software, but would like
to reject proprietary software, maybe some specific proprietary
software like WhatsApp due to its security flows -- but is this person
free software supporter or security aware person?

In general, it is better to let people identify how they wish, instead
of labeling them, and coercing certain type of identification on
people.
