Great except that the trojan horse has absolutely zero to do with this. The
issue that you brought up is this and you asked if I approve.
And you approve of this? "The organizers called up Kochi police and man
handled Anivar Aravind a former student of the Cochin University and a well
known free software activist."
And the answer is a resounding YES. Do you approve or disapprove of this?
The conference was held at CUSAT which appears to be a very legitimate
university. Their web-site is here:
I'm quite certain that this university doesn't make it a habit to attack
anti-Novell protesters. By several accounts the protesters stormed the
conference and started tearing down Novell posters and banners and putting
up their own anti-Novell "art work." The organizers had no choice but to
call security and have these MORONS removed.
I have yet to see anything that establishes this "Anivar" guy as a free
software activist. He sounds like some idiot who's only contribution to
free software was to disrupt a conference at a legitimate university.
So what should have they let this Anivar idiot do in your opinion? Should
they just stood there and let him destroy and deface the property of
I have no doubt that "Anivar" and his fellow idiots had strong intentions
of creating a disturbance in order to give their protest some visibility.
