I emailed Bill once in the past when he got the wrong end of the stick about
free software and explained some of the terms to him (that he used in his
article) in such a way so he could avoid misusing them in the future. Doesn't
look like it did much good :( he never replied to my email either, personally I
feel that aunty has given him a nice job and he thinks he is great and doesn't
care about getting things right. Seems to be his personal domain to talk
rubbish about technology on the bbc site, I would love to see him got rid of
(and this is not just free software I am talking about either) and they get
someone who doesn't abuse what they get by plastering their ugly mug all over
