Thinking not-that-far-back to the arrival of the FSF-driven hordes 
trying to stop publication of the TLS authorization document, I think 
the IETF pretty much blew them off, which was the right thing to do 
under the circumstances.

Some of those posts made relevant points, and came from people who are 
responsible for parts of the Internet.  If indeed the IETF blew them 
off, which I sincerely hope is not what will happen to that draft (the 
status tracker hasn't changed status since before then), I think the 
IETF will lose credibility in the wider community.

The main effect of that letter-writing campaign was that 98% of the 
points, relevant and not, were restated over and over again.  I was 
lurking at that time (as now) and my recollection was that the IETF 
listened to the relevant points the first couple of times, and blew off 
the restatements.
