It was unfortunate that his questions were sent at a time when both Nils
and I were on vacation and Joey and Ian were tied up with real life issues
:(

Just thinking on my own, it might not be a bad idea if people friendly to
Debian and SPI were to write letters of complaint to Mr. Leibovitch's
employers explaining how the articles are unfounded and something along the
lines of "...not reading a publication that spreads deliberate untruths..."
or something along those lines.  Readers are the basis for advertising
dollars which are the basis for income to any publication, print or
electronic.
