"Miracle Man" screams "I'm not listening" (film at 11)

The U.S. Department of Justice published its response to a congressionally-mandated public review of its Microsoft settlement proposal today. Of course I submitted a comment during the review period. Here's where the DOJ tells me to shut up and get back in line. The flip-off in more depth. (See especially paragraph 369 where they explain why only big-business corps w/ lots of money really count as "open source developers" and that independent coders w/ no real money don't count. Note also that paragraph 370 says why, if I can't afford to pay a third-party to audit my code, I doubly don't count.)

More detail for the knowledgeable available in the Slashdot story (note that they misspelled my last name in the DOJ's comment index as 'Aranian' <grumble>). For the hopelessly confused, maybe this will help.
