After receiving further requests via email for a Q&A session, I've agreed to do that here while I have a bit of time. I just returned home from a flight so I'm a bit sleepy. Forgive me if my answers are short or I'm not able to reply to everyone's questions. My first visit to this online community left be confused as I saw nothing but inane comments and couldn't figure out how to post messages properly. One of you kind gentleman was able to explain to be how the board software works. Apparently new threads require an image. He also suggested I use a "tripcode" to distinguish me as the original poster. Hopefully I understood his instructions correctly for how to do that.

This gentleman also informed me that you are already aware of my position at the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and the free software movement and that a detailed explanation won't be necessary. Given that, I'll move straight to the questions and answers.
