Okay now now before some of ya'll get in an uproar let me tell you this...I am not defending myself, don't need to defend myself. I am simply typing out my thoughts on MY BLOG where I am allowed to say what I think *okie does wish her brain would stop popping it's thoughts up on the screen sometimes*.
Evidently there are some people that read my blog that don't agree with my view about the courts ruling on the lawsuit that Provocraft had against 3rd party software.
I have received numerous emails, about people leaving my blog *okie thinks there are some comments in there somewhere too* because I accepted the ruling of the court and was happy for ProvoCraft. I have also received some that told me I am stupid, an idiot, that I am taking food out people's mouths *okie isn't sure how that one works* and a few other things.
For the "drink the kool-aid" comments I shall share some information with you - I do not blindly love ProvoCraft. There are things I like and do not like. I have posted many times that I do not like MY Gypsy. I can't see the screen to do anything with it. There are cartridges that I think are gosh awful, but I just don't buy them.
I stand by my congratulations to ProvoCraft, which was actually the ruling of the courts of this great United States and isn't allowing copyrighted information to be stolen from a company who went through their legal hoops to protect what was theirs to begin with. **EDIT - it has been pointed out several times that it was a settlement, not a ruling. But with that said I think rarely does an innocent party settle**
If my feelings and opinions posted on my blog offend you then I shall hold the door open for you and bid you adieu, for I shall not miss anyone who can't accept that people have differences of opinion. If my agreeing with a court ruling causes me to lose every follower and reader I have then that is the way it is.
But guess what, I will still be here posting away because I do this as my therapy and I am quite happy to talk to myself *okie thinks a lot of people already know this*. I feel there are some folks that will stick with me. There are people who have met me in person and know that how I post is how I am if you meet me in person. I can debate issues with you and not change my feelings about you and if you are my friend online you are my friend in person.
And to end this little mumble jumble I will say I am proud to live in a country where people can disagree with one another without the fear of repercussion.
