I don't think Tino was calling anyone on the list a zealot but had in mind
some of the ultra-fundamentalist Christian groups in the U.S.

I'm not against creating another tutorial which can be presented by *any*
teacher in school without getting red ears, but just changing freedomyug
would smell too much like censorship to me. As it is, it is very inspiring
and just the right start for a professional designer, IMHO. I agree that for
students it might be better to have a more neutral content which doesn't
draw attention from the layout task at hand.
