You can probably still remember the OOXML abuses in Denmark (post last modified yesterday, in order to include a reader’s update). More information about the Danish complaint is now available at
noooxml.org as well.
“Never before have I witnessed a wave of attacks of this scale, mostly originating from anonymous posters or pseudonyms (the forum is unmoderated).”On a more personal level (which I try hard to avoid in this Web site), I have been talking to Jesper Stocholm, one of the Danish representatives. He entered a public forum where he shares non-BRM-related views while attending the BRM. He came there in response to my postings.
Never before have I witnessed a wave of attacks of this scale, mostly originating from anonymous posters or pseudonyms (the forum is unmoderated). Literally hundreds of posts with personal attacks against me are intended to make it impossible for two people to communicate. The post are slanderous. They are outright lies. They are aggressive and insulting. It is said to be equally bad in Slashdot, but I very much doubt it. Either way, here is my last message to Jesper (from last night):
Denmark and Formats
The NG is flooded by slanderous attacks like I’ve never seen before. I can’t do anything to respond there.
Flooded by a gang of anonymous hyenas (these are pseudonyms).
Please contact me to avoid abuse.
I know very little about Jesper, but his Web site, which is purely run on Microsoft technologies, has quite a bit of anti-ODF and pro-OOXML content on the face of it. This was noted before. If you watch some of the cited links, you’ll see that Microsoft and gold partners dominate Denmark’s vote, which in itself makes the whole situation somewhat of a farce. █
