Re: troll …… a disgusting supporter of dodgy characters/a shady member of ill repute
Did you sign up today just to troll and bash Stallman and Musk? Get a life. … YetAnotherJoeBlow
Well spotted, YetAnotherJoeBlow, and continuing on in the same familiar vein ….
If BOFH-in-training, or any other wannabe 77th Brigade warrior type, flits and flips their mind and attentions north of Hadrian’s Wall, they can have a field day ranting and raving about the harm and damage being done to a similarly outraged to the FSF Scottish National Party in the light of the sudden appearance of Alba, which some spectacularly failing hearts and minds manipulators are pimping/pumping and dumping as a one man band vanity project.
Did you ever hear such telegraphed nonsense? He/She/It/They will be in their element up there at the moment if they’re looking for more than just a good fight and oxymoronic scrap. Bloody noses/Glasgow kisses are well known whenever deemed worthy to be generously handed out for free.

IT is a Punch and Judy Show for Court Jesters Advising Crown Clowns ‽ .
If people are not careful , the likes of Google, Microsoft & Facebook.. will own opensource within a few years. (they are already on most of the controlling “boards”) ….. razorfishsl
Imagining you own everything is not without its own particular and peculiar set of difficulties to prove possible, or impossible, to command and control, razorfishsl. Google, Microsoft & Facebook may realise that and decline to enter into that honeytrap, which you can be sure is not an empty of competition and opposition space.
GrahamC  …… airing an obvious point of blockage on https://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/articles/2021/3/24/darpa-expands-program-to-link-us-investors-to-new-tech
“The program is similar to the Defense Department’s Trusted Capital Marketplace, which vets potential investors for U.S. defense firms to ensure they do not have connections to foreign entities.” …… As unfortunate as one may think it is, it is impossible for one to ensure such a situation is guaranteed for any length of time. It is as a fluid tidal market place with an ebb and flow of info and intel, first in one direction and then in another direction.
And whenever one is entering especially into the likes of the realms of AI, where overwhelming proprietary intellectual property expertise may be securely and safely held in the vaults and silos and hearts and minds of others from a foreign land/partnering friendly ally/perceived hostile enemy nation, such a proposal and imposition will effectively catastrophically exclude one from availing oneself of that which one earnestly desires and requires, if prevented and/or terrified of connecting/communicating with foreign entities.
And yes, while that is very Catch-22/Memo 618, it is also just the very strange natural condition of current, rapidly developing and expanding situations, which quite understandably present extant executive office type systems administrations an enigmatic dilemma for satisfactory creative, mutually beneficial future resolution.
The best then that one can surely hope to attain in all such cases, is to diligently monitor and mentor applications and drivers and attractively and extremely generously reward prime principals with the simple means for them to supply themselves with all of the baubles they may desire that systems have invented and manufactured to attract both top and top secret talent and services.
It has proved itself most effective in the past and is the easiest of currently quite ubiquitous control devices to trial and trail to entice compliance with certain wishes. And is easily withdrawn too, to register displeasure or cause one to note a change in agreeable direction by any party.

The British believe they can project their influence into far off locations like the Balkans and Black Sea by developing cyber warfare.
Hmmm?? With particular regard to exactly who/what the British is, can you be more specific and personally name such souls as may possibly be, and therefore also quite probably are, radically mad and would be busying themselves with excessively influencing sentiment and future activities in the UK? I realise that from a portfolio of so many, that might be too tall an order to successfully fulfil with an accurate list, but it would establish an indicative base to make a start with to investigate and interrogate.

Nicola Sturgeon and the present iteration of the SNP have made it impossible to not see them as and realise they are no more than just an ignoble Westminster Trojan Horse.
