As did quite a lot of people.

I doubt Richard Morrell has anything to do with Research Machines - if he
does/did, I doubt he had anything to do with any charge rates to primary
schools.  Or are you just mistakenly associating the initials with each
other?  Or are you also being sarcastic?

Hmmm ... Can I take this opportunity here to state that Richard has dealt
with FSF and FSFE (and is still dealing with FSF today) wrt a variety of
challenges and complaints laid towards us, and in all respects we have very
quickly cleared up any issues, or have been shown to be compliant with GPL
... I fail to see what further attacks and insults can do to forward any
SmoothWall / free software / FSFE discussion on anything resembling a
professional level ...
