The original post was a childish troll, to reply with flat out ridicule
seems appropriate.

NYC LOCAL: Wednesday 3 May 2006 Internet Society New York Chapter: Eben Moglen on Free Software and Free Media

<blockquote
  what="official ISOC-NY announcement"
  from="first page of http://www.isoc-ny.org, 1 May 2006">

 Eben Moglen on Free Software and Free Media

 Professor Moglen is currently a Professor of Law and Legal
 History at Columbia Law School as well as the General Counsel for
 the Free Software Foundation.

 "Free software puts in the hands of users the rules about packet
 distribution in the devices and networks that the software
 powers. That means free software plays a smaller or larger role
 in the determination of media concentration, according as users
 have more or less control over the network that envelopes their
 lives. Media concentrators know this to be true, and are
 adversaries of free software. I will describe how we will fight
 back, and win."

 The event is free, open to the public and the site is fully accessible.

Sorry we don't eat flatfish. They munch on shit at the very bottom of the

Now that you've brought it up, what exactly DID Jesus do for money the
three years of his ministry?  I have no idea -- I don't think I've thought

 Part 1: VPNs with OpenBSD in large corporate networks

 Large corporate networks are traditionally a mess. Historically grown,
 designed and maintained by a number of different people and never really
 intended to be secure. Above all big companies are operating globally
 and often use the internet to connect their locations, employees and 3rd
 party supporters. We need very flexible ways to deal with the vast
 number of requirements to secure these networks. This talk will show
 different practical approaches in building flexible secure VPNs with
 OpenBSD at different network levels.

Dear Bernie Margolis,

Please put up prominently explanatory information on our public
library website at http://bpl.org that the videos at

nonpc computers!

Disclose it prominently clearing up the misunderstanding that our

Re: Do I have to release the patch for a GPL software under GPL?

Or maybe you're not confused, but just unhappy that it doesn't condone
your desire to take away some of your customers' freedoms.

Your customers will have to apply the patch themselves.  If you give
them an already patched kernel, you will have to release it to them with
the GPL (modulo BSD-type parts of the kernel) covering the *whole*
derived work, otherwise your redistribution will be in violation of the
only licence you have to redistribute, the GPL (module BSDish and public
domain parts).

IANAL BTW.

Dear John Arnold,

One wonders what, if anything, your post has to do with Linux Security.

Perhaps we should "disclose prominently" what "off-topic posting" means in a
newsgroup.
