Dear Minister Conroy

Posted on 01 Mar 2010 10:27pm by Aleks Bochniak

I would appreciate it if you could remove my javascript Tag Cloud from your website.

I do not want in any way to be associated with yourself, your office or your policies.

Removal of my code from your website is the only way to achieve this.

They're more than welcome to use and modify my code, however appropriate credit should have been left in place. I don't want to take credit for what they've done, far from it. But, this is one usage of my code which I would have appreciated them asking my permission, because if I had known the final outcome I would not have let them.

Readers, in case you are not aware please read the following news.com.au item and blog post.

Very good sir!

Let us know if you get a response. It would be interesting to see how (and if) Senator Conroy responds to this.

how (and if) Senator Conroy responds to this:

Conroy should not even have a website. He should be communicating using a stone and a chisel, unless of course he wants to filter all stone tablet communication also.

Please post the fools response if he has the guts to respond.

There is only one solution to this problem: Kevin needs to get rid of him before we get rid of Kevin.

Aleks, well done standing up for your rights. Hopefully someone will listen. Hopefully someone will realise that we should not be treated like children.

It seems Conroy's infringing your copyright!


02 Mar 2010 5:36pm

By chance was the code GPL licensed? If so have they no broken the license agreement???


02 Mar 2010 7:50pm

What is going on here with the technology stuffs?


02 Mar 2010 9:27pm

@Aleks Bochniak is this a legit protest or a way to criticise the government and maybe drum up some free press about you, your site and the MySource Matrix CMS?

Dude, I'm from 3000BC and even WE think you're policies are outdated!

Get with the flow, setup a major online digital distribution group, make every ISP have it as quota free, and start making some REAL money as everyone pays 50cents a view, but pays none-the-less!


03 Mar 2010 10:20am

Good on you mate for your responseyo Stephen "Fascist" Conroy. I agree with your stance!

Thanks Guys,

Seems it's been taken down.

Huzzah!


04 Mar 2010 12:26am

And in other news, aleks.bochniak.net has been added to the secret filter list.

It looks like they have removed the code comment and not the code to me. So they are still plagiarizing your code, even worse now they aren't citing you.

Although I could be wrong, I'm sure you know your code better than I do.

Good on you Aleks.
