The mailing list strips attachments, but in any case we will not use any
icon that does not represent PDF files, and this has nothing to do with
the fact that we endorse proprietary PDF readers (which is not true).

As I already stated:

The icon near the links called "PDF" to the stored PDF files on your
website is not the icon proposed by Adobe for Adobe Acrobat generated
PDFs [1]. Simply because the icon does not include the PDF word (or
any other indication of PDF). That icon is the Adobe  Acrobat icon
[2], a non-free software. Even the name of the icon file is
"page_white_acrobat.png" (no PDF word included). This is why the
argument that the icon doesn't represent an application, but a
standardized document format called "PDF", cannot be considered a
valid one. The icon doesn't represent a standard, it represents an
application (a non-free one). (More over, the website stylesheet also
includes page_word.png and page_excel.png icons!) Instead, it's easy
to replace the icon with the Free PDF readers campaign run by FSFE,
which lists only Free Software applications for the same standard.



So any logical person agrees that the website suggests a non-free software to read thos PDF files. I am sorry if you cannot see that.
