Well, that's just it. We don't have to willingly submit to Oracle. The software is free. Sometimes the analogy of a broken clock being right twice a day applies. In the fly by night world of free software, sometimes it is nice to have something that is cross platform, free, and backed by a large company. This software is VERY useful to a LOT of people and until it breaks or can't function, it will continue to be used. P.S. There may be a handful of us that know ALL corporations are jacked and so we don't care where it comes from as long as it works and peeps have checked it for holes.

Without trolls under them. How is one to know what is idiotic without trolls? Trolls are a priceless commodity that need to be nurtured and protected so as we as a society don't lose sight of what is right and wrong. And Karma is some bullshit some asshole made up as to bring glory to their conduct that they don't deserve. People always want credit for shit they are SUPPOSED to do. What goes around doesn't come around. Shit happens. End of story.
