Given how thoroughly and obsessively several people from the project
have been following and putting under the microscope every word that I
say about Haiku on third party sites such as Haikuware or Facebook, I
am pretty sure that Matt and his mind police pals are aware that I am still
actively contributing to Haiku, specifically spearheading the Japanese
localization effort with the help of the folks from Haiku Japan
(http://haiku-jp.org), and working on a website for the Spanish
speaking community (http://haiku-es.org). But I suppose that does not
count, does it?

This cheap attempt represents a new low in the string of actions that
Matt and a few others within the project have been taking in an
attempt to try to get rid of a  (past and present) major contributor
to the project. So much for Haiku being a meritocracy...

Anyway, this will be my last post, at least for a while, because I am sure
the Haiku admins will ban this email address too, as they did with the
previous one. The Haiku admins have really become masters of censorship
(wonder if they were trained by Hugo Chavez...), but at least they have a
sense of humor:
