out banners saying <editededbyme> and put it up
We are not against company x, y, or z. We are not against corporates.
We are not opposing capitalism. We are not against globalisation. We
are not about monopoly.
We are about freedom for users of _software_. When company x, y, or z,
capitalism, globalisation, or monopoly or (insert your pet peeve here)
gets in way of free software(*), we need to respond/ react/act. Like
Gandhi said, hate the act, not the doer.
The best example is Apple. They extensively do use free (urmmm ..
non-copyleft) software. But they also created the un-fair-play
ruckus. And FSF-I has stood up to the threat.
(*) All the above get in way of our freedoms in general, and since all
of us are concerned about (non s/w) freedom (too), non-s/w topics
do creep into our discussions ever so often.
BTW, it will be appreciated if people reply to the list alone, unless
you deliberately want to respond privately.
