This guy Juli Ben-Yehuda is not an oficial voice within openMosix. He
ha so far only taken the voice of the one who slanders and critizes

top-lawyers are waching and documentiong his wrong moves like this one
and he and his friends will be prosecuted in court soon.

  5. what a s**t of a person…
    This is really foul step. Starting from calling you in names, proceded to bashing your competence and finally discredited your civic status. M.F.
