why do you keep on saying "even more extreme than RMS"????

RMS isn't "extreme".  he's right....his reasoning is sound and his
conclusions about software and freedom are both correct and obvious.


ps: i'm tired of seeing RMS marginalised.  it's bad enough to see the
clueless losers on slashdot rant about RMS and others... it's unpleasant
to see that such ignorant disrespect gets repeated thoughtlessly here on
the debian lists.

pps: yes, Ian's proposed DFSG2 is flawed.  it's legalistic junk rather
than plain english guidelines.
