Not content to stop there, Karen then emailed the HeliOS developers, threatening legal action. Choice quotes include "At this point, I am not sure what you are doing is legal. No software is free and spreading that misconception is harmful... I want to assure you, if you are doing anything illegal, I will pursue charges as the law allows" and "This is a world where Windows runs on virtually every computer and putting on a carnival show for an operating system is not helping these children at all."
The attempted deposition will be seen by many as SCO's latest gambit to unmask Jones, who, it has claimed, to be in reality a group of IBM employees or an individual paid by IBM to portray SCO in an unfavorable light.
Quoting press articles, SCO's action claims IBM "funneled" between $40,000 and $50,000 into Groklaw, which tracks the minutiae of SCO's cases against Novell and IBM. Also cited as proof of bias is the fact Groklaw is hosted for free on IBM servers at ibiblio.org.
According to SCO, Jones has important information and has avoided its subpoenas by going on holiday.

I have been guilty, among a fair list of members, of accidentally clicking the wrong option when moderating - accidentally down-modding a good post, or modding up a bad post. This is usually followed by the guilty user posting to remove the unintended moderation, and often, a bitch about the moderation system.
Honestly, how hard can it be to have another button to confirm the moderation?
I started to look at making a FF add-on (extension) to alleviate the issue, but it seemed like overkill for what I wanted to do. Then a friend mentioned GreaseMonkey. I hadn't looked at it before, but a bit of research made it appear to be the tool for the job. 5 hours later, and we have a winner!
If you use Firefox and GreaseMonkey, feel free to give it a shot, comment, or improve it! Moderatrix for GreaseMonkey on Firefox. Get it while it's hot!
