Rahul, we need something out of you besides whining "out of context
quotes" as your criticism of the various posts to a thread. You
sound like Eben Moglen chanting "a license is not a contract" for
eight years. It never made it true in the federal courts, although
tens of thousands of Free Softies like yourself chanted the mantra
millions of times. Chanting "out of context quotes" doesn't make
things out of context. If you wish to claim "out of context" then
it's your burden to provide the missing context. I often post links
to the cases from which my citations are taken. The bandwidth of
the newsgroups obviously doesn't support posting the cases
verbatim. If you are too lazy or too stupid to either follow the
links or use your own volition to find the source of the cited
material then that's your problem -- Google has all encompassing
eyes.

I have observed from your previous posts that your inability to
understand the broader implications of some citations seriously
hinders your capacity to grasp what posters are claiming. I don't
know whether there is a language barrier involved but you should:

1) Post the additional context to illustrate why readers' citations
are out of context.

2) Let the readers judge for themselves from your publication whether your assertion is true.

3) Cease the little not-so-clever ad hominem digs and just STFU.

Sincerely,
Rjack :)
