The only reason I pitched in is because, he is :
   (a) an idiot, with no idea of what he is talking about
   (b) has no regard for the work that we do
   (c) clueless about the idea of community
   (d) I dont quite like the idea of pushing non-shareable / 
non-community friendly licensed material here, specially under the guise 
of 'hey, I am doing you all a favour'.

If what he is saying is correct and a community initiative cant work, we 
wont have Linux today where it is and people would not be making the 
sort of time and effort commitments they do into these projects.

Anyway, he asked a question - I just asked him to facilitate an answer. 
Unless, of-course, he does not really want an answer and was just 
taunting and blowing his own horn.

Absolutely, I agree. Its a free world and people have a right to go do 
as they please - more so in these free software environs we like to live 
in, but you see what happens is that when someone is going to stand back 
and slagg off other people - other people have the right to call his 
antics just that. antics.

Finally, I await this bible-of-firewall docs that he has come up with.
