You make this statement, and yet call his comment pure slander?

Chances are, that's what he considered to be a contact point for 
tnf...but I'm in no way affiliated with tnf (other than a user) nor

I don't recall reading where he called it evil...he just didn't 
happen to adopt it wrt his program. I don't consider Chevy to be 
evil, but I currently drive a Dodge.

He simply wishes that people or foundations who wish to use *his* 
property abide by *his* license. ipf is his property & as such, 
anyone wishing to have the functionality has 4 options:
1) abide by his license
2) make another arrangement with him for a mutually-agreeable license
3) find an alternative
4) *make* an alternative
So my suggestion is do one of the following 4 & quit b*tching about it.

And in this thread, everyone must take their digs.

Again, I have no connection with netbsd, freebsd, openbsd, or Darren. 
I just happen to run netbsd on a couple systems.
