    You didn't need to ban me Mike. I merely said that I didn't believe Mumia Abu Jamal killed Daniel Faulkner. I'm not at all saying that I in anyway endorsed Mr. Faulkners killing. I think it was a horrible thing. But there are some really shady things about the whole conviction of MAJ.

    I know people have very strong positions on this whole thing and it is your right to ban me. But if you'd given me a chance to explain myself instead of just banning me outright without even a rebuttal as to why I am wrong in your eyes is just plain wrong on your part. I actually really would have like to hear your take on it.

    But hey, it's your show. And I do thank you and Winston Wolf for the earlier advice on Linux.

    chuckyd –

    I should not even have brought the topic up. I really want all politics and religion checked at the door of the chat room.

    Please join me in the chat room again, and let's talk tech!

    Thank you,

    No prob Mike. You brought it up so I was just trying to talk to you about it. You're probably right though, politics, et al have nothing to do with tech. We went off on a tangent.

    Believe me, I am in no way convinced of the arguments on the Faulkner murder from either side.
    It was a tragic event in Philadephia's history. We all agree on that. I won't comment on it anymore on your shows. It isn't pertinent to tech anyways…
