I think that's only true when you start out by arguing that 
anyone who does care about "software purity" is "not a user". 

I'd argue that people who care about software freedom are 
typically aware of how copyright and patent law are screwing 
with our rights, whereas people who don't care about software 
freedom are typically not aware of this, and instead are 
mistakenly assuming that they already have the rights that 
they actually don't have.
