Am I biased against AbiWord? No. Is AbiWord a GNU project? No.
Hence, I'm not biased against all things non-GNU.
I'm assuming that you're referring to non-GNU projects, but if you're
referring to other kinds of things please be more explicit and I'll
pleasently rebute them just as easily.
Am I biased agains MSFT? No. Do I like what they are doing? No.
Am I biased against non-free software? Yes. Do I have good reasons for
Does that make me a zealot? I don't know. Maybe in some people's eyes.
I think that I am quite far from the definition of zealot, but maybe for
some people "a little off their track" makes another person a zealot
about whatever. Let's not go down the path of name calling.

I clearly admitted that straight from the beggining.
I clearly said:
"If this is true then it is a scandal."
So don't be righteous upon me. Please don't throw your anger against
something else towards me as an easy target. I consider this a lot more
dangerous to our beloved Abi than those TextMaker dolts that pay google
to have bad mouthed ads. They are nothing but our allies against this if
it proves to be real.

This unreasonable reaction could be revealing of a bias in the opposite
direction, did you think about that? I believe that's not the truth but
what if someone reads the list and doesn't really know who you are?
Calm down, please.
