The petition came from a group of people in the OSU Open Source club,

You apparently missed the fact that the the petition was not against the

that everyone is free to make that choice individually. What the
petition is against is the *advocacy* of the proprietary BitKeeper
software by the kernel maintainers.

The rest of your message isn't worth responding to, so I won't.
