Shameful Attack Hosted By FSF Europe

Despicable, to say the least. A contemptible attack against Ladislav Bodnar (the man behind Distrowatch) was launched on the blog of the unidentifiable person hiding under the nickname of incinerator.

There is no way to find out who's behind this name (P.S.: it's actually Dominik Bódi) — it's just some "fellow" of Free Software Foundation Europe.

"Incinerator" has read the latest DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 176, 6 November 2006 and this was enough to start bashing Ladislav: Ladislav Bodnar sells out?

Full Post.
