Despite your 'eloquence', I did revisit this. What I see is a post by Stallman
in response to Harrow, which was cc'd to multiple lists and individuals, for
whatever reason. What you folks who are so wrapped in your evangelism don't
see, is how easy it was to see that Stallman post come in that day, which I
still have in my email folder (no 'remembering' necessary), and think this was
just another way of posting to the 'endless thread' -------- you (that's the
collective that have participated in the thread, not YOU personally) have
ventured far afield from the original issue, have changed the subject several
times, and have talked about many things ---- I stand by what I stated, though
freely admitting I may have been wrong about Stallman's post (though, I don't
see that as proven by my review, OR, your assertions). You 'evangelists' have
been hovering over your keyboards for many days, your fingers superglued to the
enter key, pouncing over every thing that's said, in what has now turned into
a most irritating rudeness and lack of semblance of civility.
I have no power to moderate you off this list, and actually, I don't even wish
to, but, like you, I can state my views...and now, having stated them, I shall
say no more to feed this - you may have the last word.
