//Also, don't vote these guys down just because of who they are. NotParker for example has, quite amazingly, made some posts that are in no way off-topic or inflammatory but still are voted down. Not being pro-GPL is not in itself a reason for being modded down and being pro-gpl is not in itself a reason for being modding up. //

Agree with this. A very few of the things that NotParker says in postings are actually accurate.

That makes it triply annoying about the other 95% of his points that are utterly false.

Given the quantity, repetition, falsity and noise level of his postings, it is pointless to respond.

One of the failings of the ideal of "freedom of speech", I suppose, is that it also allows "freedom to confuse and spread disinformation".
