PLEASE can people stop responding to this fucking thread. I couldn't
possibly give any less of a flying fuck about this smear campaign
against RMS if you *paid* me... and yes, it is a smear campaign. Just
some whores from microsoft or the US government or whatever the
shit, wanting to cause trouble. I wish I never responded to it in the
first place. I already unsubscribed from this list but for some reason
I'm still getting replies.

I've CC'd FSF sysadmins because it seems my unsubscribe to the list
didn't go through.

Please can you program the list *not* to send mails to me of any kind.

And please, anyone who replies please remove my email address
( from your To/CC line. Thanks
