It boggles my mind that we can lie around complacently, arguing about
installer menus and taking the bait from trolls, while our freedoms
are quickly eroding away. The rights and recognition of one of our

community is to participate in useless flames and blog postings.

community and their legal vultures in order to protect our software
freedoms. How many of us can say we've done our part to defend truly
You don't have to be a lawyer or OpenBSD developer to make a
difference. Email the SFLC and FSF and remind them that Free
Software consists of more than the almighty penguin. OpenBSD is
arguably the most Free and Open operating system available anywhere.
The SFLC and FSF need to remember that they were created to protect
victims, not thieves.
Your donations are important for keeping the servers running, but
your voice is necessary for keeping our freedom alive.
