Power to the one who doesn't want it

I always adored clawfinger. They simply rock. And their lyrics are great, too. Some people even told me (long ago) that I look like Zak Tell. Nigger was their first big hit and it is still true.

Why do I write this now? Because some recent happenings made me remind one of their songs again that do fit the situation quite well: "Power to the one who doesn't want it". Sorry, Algernon, I can't do other but vote you for best fit for the DPL job.

Power to the one who doesn't want it. To Shape Teh Future.

Don't ask me if you don't want accurate translations...

Dear Branden!

You wanted to discuss it public, so I follow your advice. I thought you wanted to discuss it seriously, but I was wrong. I thought you were longing for accurate translations of your platform, but you seem to were longing for an interpretation of what you might have meant but not written. You showed me two people that don't see "evangelize" as religious. And you showed me two people that do consider the German translation into "missionieren" as something religios (but one saw it not too unfitting here, too). And you showed me that you didn't want to have discussed it seriously but want to have me mobbed.

I am quite confident that it isn't too hard to find native english speakers who do see the origin of the english word evangelize. And I do know that missionieren is used quite regularly in the German Linux community without any religios things in mind. You don't buy that reason, fine. But the next time when you want to have something translated don't come to me if you are not longing for an accurate translation but for an interpretation that might fit your needs....

I will respect the value and contributions of each of our developers. ... Yeah, whatever.

So long,
