Can we stop the baiting and trolling here please?
Nobody on this list has killed 15 million+ people (including 6
million jews, a whole lot of poles, rus/ukranians, etc, etc).
One might offer that current germany is far more aware of
the wrongness of blindly following leaders 3 entire generations
later, than the US.
Or should we site you in the US where YOU killed countless native
tribes, where you brought the notion of scalping to the "indians",
etc, etc. Just as valid. Where "just as" reads "is not".
One might even offer that previous grants have funded those freaks
in BERKELEY - a bastion of Republican values - and CSRG's work on
a project called BSD. I can't really see most of those developers
as towing the Reagan line very well.
Theories may abound. The grant is cancelled. If you wanna try to
do something, then do it. It's one of the few times I've seen my
(US) tax money actually go to something that would IMPROVE the
security of our "Information Superhighway" :)
If you're not doing anything and still ranting about it, then your
just spitting bits into the wind. blah blah blah.
