+Jono Bacon You are not Mark. I fully respect that. Which is why I did not ask for a debate with you or with Canonical or with Ubuntu (whatever that might mean ..).
Mark opened his mouth and has once again set a terrible example for everyone around him. Mark is largely responsible for setting the attitude and opinions found within the Ubuntu community, and as such bears a responsibility:when he creates schisms and promulgates lies, they become visible across the entire faultline along the Ubuntu user community within the larger Free software community.
Mark does not occupy a privileged position which makes it OK for him to speak his mind, particularly in this fashion, such that is not OK for others to respond in an adult fashion as I have here. You can't quiet a valid response to a statement made in public without hypocritically aligning with that statement.
I will not pretend Mark did not say what he did, nor will I allow his false statements go unchallenged in front of the community he is trying to convince.
As such, this is between Mark and those he addressed. I do not recognize you as a valid intermediary. Mark spoke for himself, and so am I.
Go home, Jono, you are neither wanted nor needed here.
