FreeBSD Ten years ago, on 24 February 1996, Greg Lehey submitted for publication the final version of the first ever book on the FreeBSD operating system, "Installing and Using FreeBSD". It was later renamed to "The Complete FreeBSD", as is now known and appreciated by the users of this OS. Grog have always retained full rights to the book, and for today he has decided to release it for download under a Creative Commons license. Besides, he doesn't have the time to keep updating it, so he is asking for help. He can't guarantee money, "just" recognition in the preface.

Brilliant, you just showed a complete disrespect for the excellent work that Groggy put into the book and a kick in the face for his altruistic move to give the book away for free. While I support filesharing, this is the "I wan't all for free" that I simply cannot help but despise as they make it so much harder for us to fight for fair use rights.

While you can argue that you only pointed out that is was there (already), your choice in words did not indicate this was anything bad.
