A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
I think the corollary to Godwin's Law should be extended to include the use of the terms "FUD" and "troll", which never advance the discussion and are basically just uncivil...
Similar in spirit?

Everyone I know does not believe in the DRM consipiracy theories either, so I am not alone.
DRM is a problem manufactured by the FSF
I for one, would like to know what percentage of people in the real world would consider DRM a problem.
There is nothing wrong with DRM.
A manufacturer has every right to incorporate any kind of technology into his device and offer it for sale, as long as it does not break any laws.
But, do not characterize legitimate, law abiding, job providing, and upstanding members of our society as evil abusers of rights that you do not have.

I just see way too many posts in way too many threads where "FUD" and "troll" are used to mean "You disagree with me." The particular example where it was applied to Sombrio felt to me like such an example.
