Hi Vic,

As usual, you ignore what is written in order to present material  
that is generally deemed incorrect or irrational.

Note that what I wrote was :

If you'd like to explain how it's relevant that binary code under the  
GPL+Exception that gets included by gcc in the httpd binary for OSX  
creates some kind of binding source dependency for the user, please  
feel free.

If you wish to use this list for personal attacks and slander, please  
take it elsewhere.
