Yea, sure.

They are going to be real concerned with what some wannabe armchair lawyer
has to say.

You and your buddies overestimate your importance to the OSS/Linux cause

You are really not important at all and outside of your circle of loons,
nobody really gives a hoot what you think or say.

God, this gets more insane by the hour.

Oh yea, BTW I am in favor of ODF but only if it is technically as good as
what we have now and does not require compromise.
