IMO, the reverse is more true. The *ix croud needs to do the same. I eat oranges because I like them more then plums. And I tell people why. Does not mean plums are bad, and many probably prefer them, but that not not my concern. Plus, oranges have a much richer ecosystem to eat in.
You might be right, I don't know, but how does that apply?
I have yet to understand how claiming that others are 'misbehaving' somehow justifies my 'misbehaving'.
Tu quoque logical falllacy.
By setting a good example, we make ourselves look more credible.
