Yes. I simply expressed that I am not very happy about that usage. But I can't and will never decide who is going to use a software; that is simply not up to me. There are many other usage patterns I certainly don't like (miltitary usage) and which I won't support either voluntary or paid. There is a big difference between supporting a software and allowing to use it. Werner -- Werner Koch OpenPGP key 621CC013 OpenIT GmbH tel +49 211 239577-0 Birkenstr. 12 email D-40233 Duesseldorf
