So, there's some AC who's been visiting this blog and saying crap about me being a bad person for making money off of this blog. Therefore, no more anonymous comments, and comments are now moderated. Sorry, guys, one jerk effed it up.
To set the record straight on this blog and finances:
- I have AdSense ads.
- I have not received any money from the AdSense ads yet, though they've been there for nearly a year.
- I get paid to write about Linux on other websites, not here.
- I did not get those writing gigs from this blog. I got them from being a frequent commenter at GeeksAreSexy.
And, since the person doesn't seem to understand what Free Software means...
- The "free" in "Free Software" means Free-as-in-Freedom or Free-as-in-Speech.
- The "free" in "Free Software" has nothing to do with money.
The AC also takes issue with my being an Ubuntu member, saying I contribute nothing.
- I'm a moderator on the Ubuntu Forums
- I frequently help on #ubuntu on IRC.
- I've done a bit of bug-hunting, but I'm kind of a n00b when it comes to C programming, so I can't squash big bugs. I did figure out what was wrong for Bug #215729 and submit a preliminary patch. Then my poor C skills popped up and the patch had to be patched :P
- Evangelizing is considered a way of helping out, and I do that.
- IRL, I help out new users.
So, will the AC please STFU???
