When people see opinions on any contested subject the typical initial
reaction is: "which side is this commentator on?"  In rare cases
someone may comment from a position outside the firmly established
camps.  Those who have grown used to the framework of the debate may
have trouble digesting the unconventional message.

As I wrote, I can see that the recently surfacing scandalous stories
concerning Bill Gates of Microsoft are similar to those cast upon
Richard Stallman of FSF some two years ago.  I wonder why this is so.
I would like to examine this issue objectively.

I respect Ali Reza Hayati.  He has the courage to apologize and make
corrections promptly.
