There are no anti-open sourcers. So no-one is arguing that. Find me one programmer who doesn't use open source, and doesn't appreciate it, and I'd be very surprised. If someone were on the fence about open sourcing things, joking around about their selfish motives isn't going to get them over the fence in the direction you want them to go, it's more likely to reduce down their interest in working on it at all.
