lol..the height of immaturity, rudeness and hubris.

Joomla is OUR little opensource plaything, if you dont like it bugger off!

we work pretty darn hard on it to make it in OUR image and how dare you stake a claim on it as well, nor dare complain?


Joomla is not for any 'productive use', LOOK the very GPL license says ...
THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Look, any form of dissent or disagreement with that position is "tearing down Joomla!"  you are "either WITH us or AGAINST us"!

how official is that position?

Ah! Steve... always so predictible...
Can't you just write in plain English?

Nothing is all black or white.
Joomla! is neither a "little opensource plaything", neither an "image" for a happy few.
It IS for productive use indeed and there will always be some dissent or disagreement in a community of hundreds of thousands people (with an "s" to "hundred as these official sites" are just a part of it.

The copyright holders had to take a decision in order to protect the nature of the project and Rome was not built in one night.
Nobody is considered here as "with" or "against" us (whoever is meant by "us").

All "official" statements for the project are proposed as Announcements.
Any other post is the responsibility of their authors.

This reply is btw.  :laugh:

I don't even understand what you are trying to say. Are you saying that you think that Joomla! itself shoudl not be gpl?
So we must fix our vision not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but upon the positive affirmation of peace. MLK 1964.
