I believe that the exclusive use of a "royalty-free" (RF) licensing model
is in the best interests of the Internet community.

 I think we were nice to let commercialism onto the web, but look what it
has brought us!!!!! Pop-ups, advertising, and an idea that advertising needs
to empower the Internet (That it is the only way to generate cash for
content! Bullocks!) Content protection, DMCA, RIAA, MPAA,
SSSwhateverthehellitis, etc, etc...

 Isn't there a way that we can just get these people OFF of our FREE
internet? How about this? Instead of us needing to forge on to create (once again)
our own Internet that is away from commercialism, patents, etc, why don't we
just make THEM leave instead?

 Maybe you guys that are "patent holders" could go with them? :-) Maybe
you would rather sell-out now though eh? Maybe you could GO with them, THEN sell out
after you guys have left? It would make it a lot easier on everybody.

 I fogot though, you guys sold out to them a LONG time ago.

 Now where did the keys to my brand-new jeep go?

Thanks,

Steve

PS See you in the chat rooms soon. I am taking down your link on my website
tonight. Sleep well and stop selling out.
