Re: When open source projects close the process, something's wrong

Moral rights? What a load of shiat.

Well, this type of stuff is to be expected. I'm getting tired of these OSS evangelists/zealots/idiots standing up and thumping their chests about how great they are and how bad closed-source software is, then only to turn around and find some excuse to close their source. I mean, seriously, go to an OSS project, fix a bug or put a feature in and try to submit it to source control. If you don't have a bunch of karma with the maintainers, it isn't likely to be included in the source tree. Suggest a feature and be summarily dismissed as not knowing what you're talking about.

OSS can bite me.
