Do I really need to keep count? Look at any discussion involving the GPL.

I have not detect any anti-business bias in the discussion where I was involved. I didn't hear free supporters hating the profit motives in the time I been around.

A side effect? I just don't believe it. Stallman and many people from the community are very focal about being anti-corporation and anti-profit. If you can't see this, then I don't know what to tell you.

The FSF sold software packages in the past. Stallman keep saying that he isn't opposed to software developers not being able to make a living.

Ever consider that your views of the world might be colored about what you think you see in Stallman and the others?

Now, it seem that you and I hold the same views about business and the profit motives. The only difference is that I don't see free software as antagonist to the profit motives and the ability to make a living, partly because I actually try to make money off free software and free content.
