Question asked, question answered. I mentioned no political party
name. No "party political propaganda points" at all. My point in fact
was that whether *any* party supports free and open source software
would not sway my vote.
What a typical British attitude. Any mention of politics and it causes
an immediate lock up. Thank goodness no one mentioned religion!
(btw you seem to have replied to the digest - makes it quite hard to
track the actual thread you were referring to. Top posting didn't help
that issue either)
