I have read much of it and I must say WOW! That puts things in a different perspective for me.

In the very least.
The punishment doesn't fit the crime at all.

I hope you look after handicapped children (you are their teacher, aren´t you?) as much as you do it concerning Rybka software.

What a ridiculous post. Graham maybe misguided in his support for Vas but your post makes me feel sick.

Did you read the article? It's shows evidence that no code theft was done or the kind that was wasn't game playing code or code that you shouldn't treat Vas like he's a murderer and he needs a lifetime ban.
