"What is everyone's opinion about the Free Software Foundation?"

To k3lt01, onebuck and "the-www":
"It's good to be King\Excuse me if I, have some place in my mind, where I go from time to time"

The Free Software Foundation is not RMS (he is a teacher and was a programmer) could see how you'd get that confused as the topic should definitely bring him++++ about.
Open Source is not necessarily Free, should know that if you read\listened\watched-links++

This is going to confuse you k3lt01 but you could cry to the Mods and have them split every topic (from (note how —comment is tied in, plus READ IT ALL AND ALL OF IT'S LINKS BEFORE COMING BACK!)) in to signal words, in new threads; could call it a sort of dictionary with no definitions... (I know you dislike Wikipedia and since you cant |read|(between the lines) that's Don't come back. Or, at least for the years it would take...) L-a-u-g-h O-u-t L-o-u-d

Free software is about educating the world and keeping individual freedom. Just like they\* praise actors instead of all the "little people"(on up) that make it happen, RMS did not do it all and I find it sad that I can't put this in Latin; impeach power, end borders!

Before you go and make any further false accusations I'll let you know I reported my own post not yours or anyone else's. Onebuck or the mod who looks after reports can verify that if they so choose it is neither here nor there to me. After I reported my own post, in order to stop the other thread going of topic because I knew it would, a moderator used his own discretion and separated more than my posts. I am not crying over this fact however it seems it has caused you, and at least one other person, great distress and caused two members to unite. I am happy for the both of you

I can read, I have read your blog, your Google+ page and a few other things you have left around the internet. The writing style you are using here is on your blog and Google+ but not on every forum you have frequented. I am not the first, and I seriously doubt I will be the last in LQ, to comment on your writing style in LQ.

Your writing style in your posts, your accusations (along with those of others), not to mention telling a mod he jumped on a bandwagon, is more than I have seen others get away with. You're now the first person on my ignore list, congratulations.

Have a most excellent day
