|Re: [hangout] Statement about the NYLXS & New Yorkers For Fai r Use situation
<outlawed within the year. This is why NYFU has expended so much effort on
the BFM proposal.
Today Palladium enabling hardware is being placed in home and business
computers without the buyer being told. If we do not stop this, then
within a couple of years, it will be much harder, likely in almost cases,
impossible, to boot any Free OS.
NYFU needs volunteers for both these efforts. We need volunteers for showy
rallies in the streets, and publicity producing public actions, and also
for the hard dull work of outreach and organization. NYFU has put out
calls for volunteers and Ruben, without consulting the membership has
stopped these announcements from getting to you. Is this the way a
membership organization, with a responsible goverment, works?>>
BTW - NY Fair Use does need more volunteers, and NYLXS can now focus on
it now that NY Fair Use is part of NYLXS.
But your stragerty is a failure and anyone who works under your leadership
should know this going in. They should also know that you work without any
protection of the membership and are working with CYBERSQUATERS.
On the issues:
I've discussed this before, but your stratergy fails. Your wasting resources
on BS because tomorrow ANOTHER government organization will make the threat,
and ANOTHER industry proposal will come forward to steal from the public.
Working with you retracts from the real work of getting Congress to PROTECT
your rights so that there is NO MORE FSCC threats, or threats from
Anyone who follows your lead is contributing to the cause of Jack Valenti.
You've accomplished NOTHING in 3 months other than diluting the affectiveness
of NYLXS and NY Fair Use. Now NYLXS needs to work TWICE AS HARD to correct your
mistakes, and overcome your vindictiveness.
But anything Jay, as long as it continues to feed your ego. And you
don't care who you hurt, and who you destroy on the way. 'Friend' is
a word you banter around loosely, but fail to understand. My friends would
never treat me like you have. Normally I wouldn't care how someone I've
befriended would act after you treated me as you have. I would just
write them off. But your directly threatening NY Fair Use, NYLXS, and the
best of for the Digital Rights community in general.
Your threatened to reveal secrets so horrible that it would destroy NYLXS.
Reveal away. The whole board and the membership is shaking in it's boots
in anticipation of your terrible secrets that you've been protecting us from!
Either way, give us back our domain, and give it to us NOW.
And then get OFF OUR BACK
