Well, Fedora "is not an essential part of a person's life" either.
However, I need a fully-functional Flash player as part of my job,
because some vendor websites use it.  If you are saying I shouldn't use
Flash on Fedora, you are telling me I shouldn't use Fedora on my
desktop.

The free Flash players, as distributed in Fedora, will _always_ be
broken, as they can't include MP3 for audio (at least until about 2017).
If it allowable for codecbuddy to point to a gratis MP3 codec, why is it
not allowable for something to point to a gratis Flash player,
especially when it is the "standard" and the company behind it actually
sets up a repo for use with Fedora (as opposed to the MP3 situation)?
