Ok. For starters you quoted Debian's list on participation. Try quoting
the right list according to your posting.
I get your message- I do. Many here would not agree with it, and neither
do I, though. If you want to preach, do it in the right forum. This
forum is for people who want to resolve issues with a _free_ open source
OS- not global opinions. Each forum is centered on a specific topic,
find one that suits your message. This here will not get the response
you desire, birds of a feather _will_ flock together- these here have a
different feather than your message. Find your own flock... :) You
preach respect for others view on time, money, etc; then respect this.

Money is an idea, so is temperature, distance, and luminosity. It is a
resource, and is given a value. You think a lot like my wife, she
believes in bartering and what not. I agree, but _any_ transaction is a
transfer of _value_ - something you need to come to grips with here.
Yes, there will come a time when money will lose its importance, and
maybe even value, but this now, and it does carry a high importance to
many _now_. They will not change their mind overnight- you need to
respect this. The time for change is not yet. I doubt that money will
disappear completely myself, but I do believe it will lessen in importance.
What you fail to grasp in what people are trying to communicate here is
that you are wasting resources, valuable resources in these times. This
is a worthy project (so is Debian) providing a stable system that will
be a catalyst towards the very change you are looking for. Everything
has a value, monetary or not, and while you are like some others at one
end of the extreme trying to distance yourself as far as you can from
the other (corporations, etc), it is not sustainable in the long term.
Resources will _always_ have a value, and with resources being very
limited in these projects, they cannot afford to have you waste them.
They would probably not object as strongly if you only addressed them
individually, but you have raised ire collectively- and across 2 lists!
Respect peoples wishes, and respect the value of resources- they are
never infinite. Otherwise you are no better than what it is you despise.

The list/forum is on a specific topic, therefore the consent is in
relation to that topic- not yours.

I refer to my comments earlier- if you wish to support the ideals, then
don't waste its resources. Besides which you'd be preaching to the
converted, wouldn't you?

IF you have love and respect for others (and the planet- see your PS)
then take heed and stop wasting resources. You don't take any stock in
monetary value, so I will respect that and kindly point you to the real
value of things.
Up to this point I'd say you're the devil in disguise, if you really are
of love then you will take my point and take appropriate action and in
that way prove otherwise. But the resources of this project will not be
wasted so that you can preach a message where it does not belong or
wanted. It is not up to you to create change, and you never will. It
takes time, and people are driven to change when they are ready. It is
now up to you to decide which side you are on.
I now digress a little and refer to an earlier post of yours about there
being only black and white. Allow me to debunk your theory here and now-
in love even :) Grey exists everywhere. There is no simple black and
white, that was merely enough to get us to the point of understanding
logic. The mathematician Lotfi Zadeh was given the inspiration for
"fuzzy logic" (or greyness), and was tormented and ridiculed by his
colleagues until he finally died. It took off in places where science
wasn't so tied down to fanaticism, and in engineering. Finally, after
Zadeh had died a bright musical mathematical prodigy tore down the
fanaticism broke open the closed minds by proving that all their
'current' theories were actually contained within fuzzy logic. It
encompassed them all.
You can't accurately do anything without grey, there is no on off except
in a light (and even that is debatable). Describe how fish swim in a
school, or birds flock- you can't with just binary logic. Nothing worth
doing with computers these days use _just_ binary logic. Life is
indescribable without shades of grey. Even the recognised "father of
logic", Aristotle, who was given the inspiration for logic realised and
alluded to the fact that there had to be more than just yes/no,
black/white in logic.
Incidentally it is corporations and governments that wish for a yes/no
black/white society. It boxes things up to make it easier for them to
control things. The very society you wish to change.
With that I will bid you adeiu. Don't bother attempting to contact via
the list if you have further contentions to what I have written.
