I'm joining this list since 2012 and don't remember anybody who ever
was nearly as rude, let alone ruder than Aryeh Friedman. This person
should consider to reread his own posts to the list, perhaps starting
with his subject of this thread. "Why are so many FreeBSD haters on
this list? (Troll bait)" Insulting "many" subscribers of this mailing
list as "haters" is rude. His mails are full of similar insults about
"evil" people and things, apart from this he insists to continue
spreading FUD.

Every now and then off-topic threads are nice to read, as long as they
aren't the reason for dispeace. The moderation bit could be used to
sort out emails with continued threads, that do not belong to this list
and that in addition do cause dispeace. It doesn't require to ban a
subscriber or subscribers from the list. A long discussion regarding
legal questions, done by laymen, might belong to . OTOH tinfoil
hat theories including insults about bad intentions behind FLOSS
licenses, are probably unwelcome on any FLOSS related mailing list.

The OP of the threads in question does add insults and preposterous
allegation to his opinions. At the moment nobody seems to be upset about
other opinions, it's just that the tone of voice let those opinions
become unreasonable. I can't speak for other, but I like one or the
other license better than the GPL. What I dispute are the conclusions
based upon infamous misrepresentations.
