I am sure everyone really appreciates what you have done to contribute such
an excellent program to VoIP community. People like Linux Torvalds, and
including you, are what I considered a hero with a big heart to support
open-source community. Without them, the world will be different today. It
would probably be an M$ dominated world.

I guess what I tried to say here is it really is very disturbing to see your
comments below. The least you could have done to show our community was a
positive acceptance to embrace someone's effort to legitimately port FS to
other platforms in other programming languages. If Chad wanted to hi-jack
FS, I don't suppose he would even dare to represent himself here. BTw, can
you imagine if Linus Torvalds behaves like this?

I hope you don't take my comments in a negative direction. However, like
anyone who reads your comments below, I won't be surprised if you decide to
head in a negative direction to flame my comments. Regardless, I sincerely
wish you the best to come, especially with the contribution from Chad.
