WOW this got modded down quick:

WOW!

I bet this will will increase the OSS marker share on the desktop from .36% to .36001%!

If you can convince another 10,000,000 to convert to Linux in the next year, you might hit .4%!!!!

Of course you've lost Birmingham's 1500:

"Someone please ban NotParker and his IP addresses."

Bah, that's pointless. As inflammatory and incorrect as most of his posts are I'm pretty sure he's capable of getting around an IP address ban.
The only way to deal with guys like this (whatever side they're on) is to ignore them or refute them with undeniable fact.

Edit:
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.
