Nah, it was a misinterpreted statement.  Sometimes like what happens to
me, he said this when he meant that.  In short what he really meant is
if you're a terrorist or you support terrorism, or you terrorise people
(not like we do, where we troll them,) he doesn't want you around his OS
at all.  There is a blog post where he clarifies it to somebody who
emailed him about it.
