We posted it to our lists & web site; Loic additionally posted it to We had no part in posting it anywhere else although I've
seen it featured in other places like slashdot.

The amount of reaction seems to show that this was a sensitive point
and one that was important to be made. When a community becomes so
dependent on a single resource controlled by a single company, it
becomes necessary to raise questions.

Loic raised valid questions and only got insufficient answers, so he
raised them publicly.
