Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

Yeah, I'll do that while you launch another "get the facts" campaign, calling the GPL a cancer.

Seriously. It's not like the FSF are any worse than any other software vendor.

And FFS, it's censorship when the government does it. The owners and moderators of a private forum can moderate it however they wish. You have no inherent human right or reasonable expectation to be able to say whatever you wish on a private forum owned and operated by someone else. Get over it. If you just want to loudly scream your inane opinion to people who will agree with you, then find a forum run by and populated with partisans who agree with you, and have fun in your echo chamber. Or, get a radio show on Fox.

Last time I checked, FSF was not a "software vendor".

Last time I checked, FSF was not operating "private forum". But it sure was the association with GNU that provoked arguments that the Planet Gnome should be moderated and censored.

Last time I checked people whose blogs are aggregated by Planet Gnome have right to express whatever opinions they wish.
