[free-sklyarov] Another ebook "processor"

Do you really believe in trolls, Rabbi Sassaman? I am very real, even if you 
don't like my opinion.
The fact that somebody else posted from my computer (and I think I know who 
it was), does not change the validity of my point.
Yes, I am "still here", and I plan to post more when I have time, partially 
because I have some experience most of you don't have: I used to live in 
Russia for the most of my life. When I saw protestors waving Russian flags, 
I was saddened. It reminded me of David Duke who went there for support (and 
found it, BTW).
Russia now is struggling to enforce very basic laws, put aside the  
copyright protection. Do you know that in Russia pirate software is sold 
everywhere almost openly, and you can buy any software for a couple of bucks 
(and most people do)? I am pretty sure your hero Dmitry didn't even know 
about Fair Use until he was jailed. There is no need for it in Russia, the 
idea itself sounds ridiculous. (Fortunately, you people enlightened him.) Is 
this the ideal situation most of you want to see in this country?
Many years of Communist rule destroyed respect for private property in the 
former Soviet Union. This is one of the reasons why Russia, with all its 
tremendous natural resources an great human potential, is now among the 
poorest countries in the world, while the United States is still one of the 
richest. Seems like many of you guys here don't like it.
Yes, you should see more of my disagreement with you here. If you don't see 
my messages, it most likely means I am blocked from this list. It would be 
really funny, considering you strong position on free speech...
