Personally, I am busy enough and have enough to do working on my program and am not willing to waste time trying to resolve the issue. not my job, as the saying goes.
I have thousands of question to prove that your position isnt working. Look e.g.:
- when you claim zeitnot is it really true? Then why do you invest so much time to be present against Vas whenever the debate begins?
- when you claim neutralism how then could you deal with people like Norman who is a proven cloner?
I do not "deal" with anyone here, really. Norm has done some things I don't agree with, some that I did agree with. So what?
- you claim honesty but how can you tolerate "invisible" people (Hippo...)
How can I "tolerate" them when I have never met them??? Whether they are real or fictitious I have no idea. For all I know Vas is the same as I have never met him either. There are lots of others that fit this same box. And some that don't, for example, Thompson, Hsu, Campbell, Don D, Larry K, etc. I've met every one of 'em many times.
- you claim that you had always proven with data when you accused a cloner, then why do you ignore the difference between the dsata of open source and business?
I have no idea what that means. Copying an open source program, closing it and calling it your own is not exactly ethical is it? you get the point...
Is that all sound in your eyes? Not in mine.
But excuse me, Bob, the most striking argument against you is what I mentioned often enough. You are paid by university and in your spare time, you do things for Crafty, which is a great thing! But as a married man why dont you respect the different problems for a talented programmer, a World Champ BTW, just for reasons of respect? How could you dare to set equal you living standards with his? In short why do you pretend a position that is sober when you neglect Vasik's different stances?
You will have to run that one by me again in a more understandable expression of your question. What does being a university professor, or being married, or being a former world champ have to do with anything???
And finally, where is the court case if Vas violated anything at all? Who are you to defame Vas although there is no sign for any juridical issue.
I only know what happened and have participated in discussions proving/discussing/disclosing the particulars. I have no standing to file a court case, and would not be interested in doing so since it is not my program, my problem, or my lack of ethics that led to this mess in the first place. Remember, _I_ did not copy anyone's source. I am just the messenger in this little fracus.
Is this what you understand under the famous moral nobody shall be stamped guilty until he was condemned guilty? Why are you so prejudiced towards Vas - especially when all other commercial guys dont interest you at all? Couldnt you add some clear statementsa for me because I need them, just because you were always the highest role model out of computerchess for me...
The "guilty proof" is, unfortunately, visible for all to see. We are beyond the point of "innocent until proven guilty" because he has been proven guilty. So let's move on to something else...
