Re: [Gimp-user] Replication Array Layer

It comes back to something taught in the Bible, which I've observed is
correct in life:
"If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked."

Stallman is at the head of GNU and the FSF.  Those who help build up his
products, they are acquiescing to his views on things because you cannot
divide a man in two.  It's like a sermon I heard one time:  "How many drops
of gasoline would it take to ruin a 32 oz. ice cold soft drink?"  Even if
99.99% of the soft drink were pure, that last little bit is what poisons
all of it.

The same is true with people.  And Stallman's views extend to bestiality,
child pornography, and other such things.  He holds these views in his
heart, and they affect all aspects of his life.

GNU was a good idea, but it's run by someone who is not sane.  The idea can
be salvaged as it is more of a general fundamental concept, but it must
sever all ties with GNU and Stallman in so doing.

That's what I'm doing with LibSF, created as an alternative to FSF, and my
Village Freedom Project, created as an alternative to GNU.

I don't expect people to change.  But it would be great.  It would allow
to work on the project because it disassociates itself with Stallman.

It is up to you to dislike Stallman. He is a controversial figure and I
am by no means going to defend him.

However, GNU is a very important contribution to the world of computers,
and I am not willing to sacrifice it, because stallman allegedly is
wrong on other stuff.

If you think that "Image Professional" is more prone for success than
Gimp then by all means, go ahead, fork the code and try to convince
people to work for your vision. But please do not abuse the
GIMP-ressources like this mailinglist to fight your personal vendetta
against GNU/Stallman and the GIMP brand.

Thank you.
