I talked to Raster right after the first email arrived and he said he
would take care of it. I was hoping to give him a running start before
the ugly free software posse jumped him. I must say that this mailing list
has degenerated into something akin to a Microsoft legal newsgroup. Shoot
first, let god sort'em out.

What happened was wrong, yes, but the ugly mob bristling with legal talent
doesn't seem too terribly community-like. Raster has provided more than
his share free software and is probably amongst the top ten people for
amount of code stolen from him, so a little 'slack' is appropriate.
Especially considering that he didn't even do it in the first place. I
could care less what you think of him or his code, but the ugly mob
crap is tiresome and downright juvenile.

I now await the mob turning on me.
