    | that includes the brand new Linux-libre kernel, a Linux kernel with non-free

    Roy Gets paid for quantity not quality.

    Roy Schestowitz has to keep his masters happy or else they will pull the

    Libel of whom? Scott Douglas and Gary Stewart are too scared to post under
    their real names. Why might that be?

    They know who I am, and no... I don't get paid for any of this. It's a hobby.

    But yet you claim that those are their real names.
    In fact you even go so far as to post their supposed addresses.

    More proof that you are a liar Roy Schestowitz.

    As for libel, that's something for Novell and Microsoft to deal with.
    And believe me Roy, they will.
    Not because of COLA which is a joke but because of your libelous claims
    elsewhere and believe me they have a treasure trove to choose from.

    You're like a poster child for "why I should keep my mouth shut".

    > They know who I am, and no... I don't get paid for any of this. It's a hobby.


    Baloney....
    The loons in COLA are the only ones on the net who believe you do this 24x7
    out of the goodness of your own heart.

    You really do think everyone else is stupid don't you Roy Schestowitz?
    You really do believe that.

    Classic narcissistic behavior and exactly the sort of thinking that had
    your Linux web server www.schestowitz.com spewing trojans and malware all
    over the net because you couldn't fathom how *your* site could ever get
    hacked.

    Good luck Roy Schestowitz because the *fun* is just beginning for you.

    The best thing you could do for yourself is to legally change your name
    because 5 seconds worth of Googling your name is more than enough for
    anyone with even the slightest amount of intelligence to toss your CV in
    the trash.

    The way things stand right now, you couldn't get a job as the local dog
    catcher, Roy Schestowitz.
    They would have to hide all the male dogs from you.

    And all we have to do is sit here and watch you implode.
    That's the best part because you effectively sink yourself much like the
    Titanic carrying it's own iceberg.

    I doubt he is specifically paid to post to COLA. But since he posts
    most of his things to several places, we get it in COLA as a side effect
    of his being paid (by his own admission) to post it elsewhere.

    I was waiting for someone to bring that up.

    Roy Schestowitz is nothing but a pathological liar who will say anything to
    make himself look good.
    He has fooled the COLA of people but at the same time their are those, not
    in COLA, who know what he is all about.

    At first glance Schestowitz looks like a dream come true for Linux and
    Linux advocacy, but much like that $100.00 *Rolex* when you take a closer
    look, the real truth comes prevails.

    Roy Schestowitz is using automated scripts, probably Perl, to scour RSS
    feeds, pull old stories from a database (ie:Related), format, add some
    canned comments that are keyed on certain phrases into the post and then
    spew it all over the Internet.

    COLA is just another one of his dumping grounds.

    Don't believe it?

    No human could research, format and type the amount of verbiage he is
    typing on a daily basis.
    It's physically impossible.

    And for those who claim others number of posts, mine for example, approach
    Roy Schestowitz's on occasion, consider the amount of words in Roy's posts
    vs mine.

    Much of my posts are limited to a couple of lines.

    Roy Schestowitz writes complete novels.

    You can also observe the time stamps on the posts.

    Digg posts are all a minute of two a apart and pretty much match up with
    COLA and Propeller.

    Digg posts also get shilled up rather quickly to a 2 or 3 digg count which
    is highly suspicious as well.

    There is yet another item that gives Roy Schestowitz away but I am not
    going to mention it yet because he will surely change it.

    I give him credit for one thing and that is if he did indeed write the
    program, it is one hell of an experiment in AI.

    He has suckered in quite a few people in his quest for self promotion.

    I doubt he has the intelligence to do so, but I will give him the benefit
    of my not knowing for sure if the script is indeed his work.

    When I write my columns in Datamation, I make use of knowledge that I gain in
    COLA. Does that count as FUD'ing columnists?

    Maybe I should 'un-know' what I learn while posting here because it helps me

    That's because they are highly edited for content.
    See my other post on this.

    Wordpress would be out of their mind to print the ravings of Roy
    Schestowitz verbatim.
    They would be sued within days of the release.
    And even if they weren't, it would sully their good reputation to print
    paranoid ranting of what amounts to a Usenet kook.

    "Understand Linux" ?

    Obviously it's not working so maybe you should find another method, roy
    Schestowitz.

    What you, or anyone else, myself included can learn in COLA could fit in a
    thimble.
    On top of that, most of it is not fit to print in a legit publication.
    IOW it's a lawsuit in the making.
