No. He is perfectly sane. What he means is that tin doesn't have 
the GNU tag in it. And any thing which doesn't have a GNU tag is *evil*.

Also notice the capital F in "Free".
"Free" as many other words is another perfectly sensible english
term hijacked by the GNU cartel, and given proprietary connotations. :-P

To use the term "Free" in any text relating to computers, you HAVE
to release the resulting text with GPL. Also, no such text is allowed
to have the term "Open Source"(which incidently is another hijacked word).
"Open Source" again is termed evil, cause it violates the intellectual
property rights of the GNU movement by diluting it's monopoly in the
non-proprietary software segment. The term Linux without the *prefix*
"GNU/" is again strongly discouraged. Any violation of these terms
will result in stern action.

There. Whew.
