    Post Move over GPL - meet the HPL!

    The Harm-Less Permissive License (HPL) is a permissive, non copyleft, software license. It is based on the FreeBSD license but with one additional restriction; the "harm-less" clause. It prevents software, licensed under the HPL, to be used for harming humans or animals.

    This document discusses the advantages and limitations of HPL and explains the details of the license...

    No. No no no no no. I will say nothing on this matter.

    It's just too ridiculous. Someone, please make these people stop.

    I viewed this documentary nearly 3.5 years ago:

    http://veg-tv.info/Earthlings

    It was the most shocking video footage that I have ever seen & I am over 50 years of age. It affected me profoundly, to the point where I had to become a vegetarian in an effort to have some slight positive effect on the situation.

    So anything that has any positive effect on our animal co-inhabitants of this tiny planet will always be very welcome as far as I am concerned.

    many animals eat other animals. Bugs have brains too.
    I worked with a Hindu woman vegetarian who said the test is if it has a brain they would not eat it. But they like seafood and call it the 'flower of the sea'.

    Take it from somebody born into a Hindu vegetarian family(while I'm not a Hindu any more, my family still is and I'm still vegetarian), she wouldn't be considered a vegetarian if she eats sea animals. A few relatives of mine don't even take onion because they consider it non-vegetarian.

    For software to be Free and Open Source, you must be allowed to run it for any purpose you see fit, including killing kittens.
