Russell, please do not keep quiet.

The copyright issues have been around for some years. If the level of 
verbosity was going to be a problem, that would have been evident by 
now. It has not been.

kwlug is about computer use in the local community (kw-). Preferably, 
but not necessarily, with a Linux / FOSS slant (-lug). Although, 
presenting or discussing a piece of windows only software would be 
right out, that's about it. And even then, if the question were: what 
linux equivalent software is out there, that would be perfectly fine.

There is talk, here, of events in the community, issues that surround 
the community (such as copyright), good vendors, ISPs, devices 
(OpenWRT running, et al, preferred) such as routers and phones, and 
the list goes on. Linux is used within a community, be that community 
describe by use, or geography. Both exist within a larger context.

It's all good.

If it were otherwise, if this was a Ford enthusiasts group, for 
example, discussion or complaints about the wretched pot holes that 
abound would be verboten. To me, you couldn't have one without the other.
