Muchas gracias amigo but no thanks, as i can speak for myself and defend myself
It is not just a question of due process but also of proportion and context. Many times people judge us from a small microscope without seeing the bigger picture or story. Technical writing is a very very hard area to do and few in fact almost none does that and can consistently do that over a sustained period of time. I hate writing technical stuff cos it is so boring and you cannot rant nor joke within it. View the videos i posted above. The world will be such a boring place without them. I love Bill Maher, David Letterman and many more because they say all the taboo and forbidden stuff they possibly can unless stopped by law. They even speak against God.
But i love writing for fun and humour and satire and critical thought stuff. So according to the Theory of Constraints, since writing is a constrain but your skill for fun is not, why not merge and specialise? Thus began my life in 2004 writing POSred.pdf, CallOut.pdf all done in a whacky way. I wrote about Mafia, Sex, Religion, and hmm More Sex. When i talk is also the same thing.
Not many people like to talk because it is so boring to see boring faces in front of you yawning to sleep because you are showing something they do not find easy to grasp. Try showing code to an audience of 50. You see eyes rolling, glances at watches, chatting among themselves. So again, i try the fun way. I make jokes.
Imagine trying to make a joke upon arriving in Colombia. I told them that i think they are famous for coffee and no one has offered me any cocaine so far. And my Silicon Mountain not Silicon Valley joke. I love it when I made so many people ROFL, and in Quito one guy laughed louder than the public address system. But one lady then scolded me and said my Chicka jokes are tasteless, sexist, anti women and should be stopped. But did I? I told that guy to stop laughing instead.
I told the Old Man and The Donkey story long ago about better to "Do Nothing" because when you do nothing, no one criticizes you (OK you will cos i am doing nothing about the community and project
Tell me anyone who has compassion and passion for truth and freedom that did not either get killed, crucified or vilified. I do not like to hurt people, but many people are hurt and i wish to speak out for them. Sometimes, make that all the time, big brother gets hurt when you talked about the war. In every war there are two sides and i am always interested to listen to both sides. I am sorry if you are only one side.
I do not wish to go down into history as some Che Guevara, but if someone wants to put a bullet through my PDF and make it holy, i welcome that.
Greetings from Paris.
p/s Talking about sex, i like to say something about all the pornography in the Web. Do we stop that? No, because you can't. But you can put a sign on it saying, "Do not enter unless you are over 21 as the content is sexually offensive in content and may offend some people but not you".
In my case how nice if there is a label over it, saying "The project does not share any beliefs, dogmas, fanaticsm, or insanity the author possess. In fact you be crazy to download and read his technical writing punctuated with hatred, narcissistic sarcasm and schizophrenia. If you still do and find it offensive, please remove them from your computer, and file a complain with our HeadQuarters at Auschwitz."
Well here in France, you can question about everything, even the Holocaust (French govt trying to ban people questioning the Holocaust but popular opinion are against any such censorship). I tried hard to ask a lady friend at the Paris office here that there must be some taboo the French has and she answered, "You cannot ask a French how much money they make!."
