MyDoom and you

I hope that among those who read this blog, there are none who believe - or would even seriously consider - the mind-boggling fingers pointed at the free software community as authors of the MyDoom virus or accomplices of the author. I would really, really hope that the readers of this blog have enough common sense.

Still, if there is someone who still believes that the appearance of the MyDoom virus is a sure sign that the whole free/open-source software movement is Evil(tm), here's a great article by RMS on the subject. Definitely worth a read, no matter where your beliefs stand.
