   The label could also be used to refer to people who are pro libre data,
   information, knowledge, cultural works, ....

        Hey everyone,
        It occurred to me that there isn't really a good one-word way of
        describing someone who rejects proprietary software on ethical
     grounds.
        For example there's "vegan" for people who don't consume animal
        products on ethical grounds. I know there is a derogatory term
     that
        exists, and another which is specific to someone who agrees with
     RMS,
        but there is no general positive term that we could all use. Even
     a
        short phrase seems difficult because you could say "free software
        advocate" but you can reject proprietary software on ethical
     grounds
        without doing any advocacy.
        I think this would be good so people can self-identify, and it
     might
        help bring the idea into common thought.
        If anyone has any ideas, please share.
        Kind Regards,
        Roberto Beltran
