Dear attrition folk,
the lawyers for Medica were trying to intimidate you, as a company, now
basically defunct, was trying to intimidate the Linux folk, into
compliance.  You did not cower in fear; you did not run squealing like a
bitch. You acted like a mensch.
You know, and I know, that they are hiding what happened because they
erased the evidence. I may not have proof, nor you either, but we know. The
exchange of letters, e-mails, is high satire, though real event. Mort Sahl
would be proud; Juvenal would be proud too.

We salute you.
