I invite the guy who said this at the Greater London
User the 22nd of April to confirm that himself here.
What he said was: "In the Free Software movement there
are lot of nutcases". We were discussing Free Software

Speaking of which, Alfred, after giving you credit for
what you at the Hurd and Arch, I think that your harsh

still remember when you early labelled MJ Ray a
junkie!) are a pain in the neck to those who are
genuinely involved in spreading and sharing knowledge.

So I will follow the end of this thread, unsuscribe
from this list and wait for the day you will be old
and wise enough.
