People who trust BoycottNovell's integrity are not known for their desire to
get all of the facts before they make public accusations about things (seems
to be a disease that they all, including Roy Schestowitz - the leader of
their cult, is cursed with).

Similar trolling occurred on the Fedora lists a few weeks ago by another guy
affiliated with BoycottNovell (Keith G. Robertson-Turner), again, being
completely clueless about the actual facts before he threw a temper tantrum.

That said, I'd like to take the time to point folks out to this little gem
by our wonderful friend, Mark Fink:

Some of you may also be interested in a video I saw linked from a few weeks ago about surviving "poisonous people"

I personally found this video very educational.
