As candidate, i would aggressively pursue FOSS goals.
I don't think its right to sweep the emotionally charged issues under the
rug like a piece of dust, and i did not criticize forks.
As poster and correspondent, i will never attempt to use dehumanizing
epithets such as "troll" on coders or non-coders.
This process of dehumanization is not welcome in the FOSS community.
Further, you inability to make specific points, instead relying on ad
hominem attacks means i dont even want to engage with you.
