If someone added it to the freebsd-config mailing list, they should not have
mailed a copyritten piece on a mailing list for public use.
This has been added to the bottom of the page since we are unsure of the
We have been given the email address of: soup at arbornet.org as the original
copyright person. Unfortunately, we have no way of confirming this as yet.
We are trying to locate WHO originally wrote this. We took this off the
freebsd-config mailing list which is a public mailing list.
It seems this David Hoffman is directly attacking our group. Because there
are no references to HOUFUG being a part of an organized group to adopt
English as the official language. HOUFUG does not have any political ties
with anyone. We only have a FreeBSD mailing list to discuss FreeBSD issues.

I personally have a link to the US English organization on my PERSONAL home
page of www.ingridfuller.com. This has nothing to do with HOUFUG or
FreeBSD at all. What I believe in is my business and my right as a citizen

Subject: [Hou-freebsd] Serious breach of copyright -- First post
It appears the page at http://www.houfug.org/help/install_freebsd.htm
constitutes a serious breach of copyright. The article, which was
originally written and posted to the Internet by the owner of the account
soup at arbornet.org, is falsely attributed to the Houston FUG, whose members
maliciously removed all reference to its original creator. On a related
note, the FUG seems to be part of an organized group to convince all States
to adopt English as an official language, a bigoted and misguided policy.
Plagiarism should not be tolerated.
