Ok here we do, the mailing list is getting ready to censor me.  Now I am
"slandering" the software.  Either use your firewall, or read about nestat
an all of its parameters to check for internet enabled files.   Using the
firewall is likely much easier assuming you have a reasonable quality
firewall software.   I am not slandering the program at all.  It does in
fact have open internet connections that are not disclosed to the user.

Informing other users is one thing, spreading slander is another.

You still offer NO proof whatsoever for your accusations. To go to the
Ubuntu case: there the accusers presented their observations and
methodology, so others could check, as is the basis of open source.
Your accusations are perfect closed source: "here are my conclusions, take
'm or leave 'm"
