Yes

I was intended to address just this issue. However, it is long and already
posted in full to the elistis list, NYLUG and is the the NYLXS website:


It can be read here: http://www.nylxs.com/politics.html to the link on the
bottom.

The issue of political activism in the Linux communitee is not being suffiently
address by the big guns in the movemnet. Meanwhile, the DMCA and SCSS is
threatening the existence of free software. The movies have gone to war against
Free Software programmers. See "Swordfish" as an example of a movie designed to
create fear in the public about programmers and FD programmers specificaly.

Linux should have sued the producers of 'Swordfish' for libel, although he would
probibly look good with a leather jacket and the handle "Axel'. Maybe I should
take that handle.

Eh - I already have one.
