Though I'm a bit skeptical about the effectiveness of this approach
(because it feels "defensive"), I understand the main idea behind it.

My preferred approach is to *promote* good FLOSS public projects so
that they can play a "role model" for others.  The main advantage I
see is that I spend more time with good-willing people in need for a
small push, and less time with people (only) willing to argue.
