I'll sell you a nice looking parchment with the GPL printed in a nice
minimum-serif calligraphic font, so you can send him a copy of your
operating system license, somehow strongly resembling the Bill of Rights.
Honestly, any vendor who has thoughts of selling my info out for a bunch
of frequent-ratter points deserves the small-claims lawsuit that's about
to land on him. I went on record during MS Refund Day as wanting my payback
in a *useful* MS product, like a mouse, or a book...
