No. I don't need money. You guys really don't get it do you? That
there exists a man, somewhere on the internet, who logs on, learns

The primary reason I included freebsd-questions is that I was once a
member of that community, and whilst I still code in BSD when it floats
around my Wi-Fi I am not an overly active participate at the moment. My
second reason is that during my "subscribed" time on the list I found
the members to be very highly knowledgeable, in fact, my opinion is that
the BSD's have some of the world's greatest technological minds
associated with them. If you understand the significance of the world I
am writing about, and that it is possible, maybe you will understand why
I am attempting to reach those who could have the maximum effect. Only
by applying our minds to the our situation will we be able to move forward.

I understand your frustration. However, I am asking if you know of any
way in which we can move the world forward using free software as a
means? You, me, the world, we are all here together, and a global
awakening is happening. If it is not me it will be someone else, sooner

I forgive you. The combination of words that I am currently writing

into your consciousness for you to make a decision on what combination
of words to write back... can be "spam" for you, or "idea" to another.

Please direct me to etiquette, in particular, to the part which you feel

I do not fear the truth. I am merely expressing an opinion. I am
allowed to have an opinion, am I not?

I came from my mother, just as you came from yours. I am not sorry you
are unable to accept that my opinion differs from yours, and I hope that
we resolve this.
