    Leave it to some random PR drone with nothing better to do to click on a random link that says "Qualcomm", read something that may potentially represent a viewpoint "of Qualcomm" (the company -- as if corporate entities can have opinions -- hah!) and request the author to take it down just because it hasn't been cleared through legal.

    Free speech is dead.

    The true engineers, hackers, scientists trying to get the software free. At least the base where everything else is based upon. Honorable and good.

    Business as usual.
