"There seems little doubt that SCO was targeted - illegally and
unacceptably, lest anyone be in any doubt - because it has enraged many
people devoted to the Linux operating system."
Is this fair comment?
Why could they have been targetted?
a) - disgruntled employee
b) - the law suits
c) - random domain name
d) - the colour of the sunset on a friday in november
e) - the smell of napalm in the morning.
Of all the various reasons behind it, what is the most likely answer.
and since i am not a lawyer lets attempt logic ;-)
If one says that <insert random race here> are responsible for certain
attacks - thats racism right?
If one says that <insert random gender here> are responsible for certain
attacks - thats sexist right?
If one says that <insert random philosophy here> are responsible for
certain attacks - thats obviously alright.
Its quite possible that in some countries, and under some conditions,
"fair comment" can be mistaken for incitement.
