That's fine information. But if you start justifying your actions to a
troll, you'll only invite more need for justification. *IF* the troll
is what led to this explanation.
Personally, I don't care. You're in a pro-linux group making pro-linux
posts. I doubt you make a cent on it. but if you found a way to do so,
all I'd say is 'good for you'.
Either way, the trolls can continue eating the little round balls
brought to them by dung beetles.
I use linux because I've used Windows.
