Yes, well, for those who don't read kde-cvs, here is the "credit" that Neil added
to "his" apps:

 s_aboutData->addCredit("United States Army", I18N_NOOP("Preserving the freedom that made this software possible"));

The status of maintainer of an application (within the KDE CVS)
DOES NOT give you all possible rights with it.
The above is against the KDE policy of no politics (and no, the
front page has nothing to do with such politics), therefore YOU are the one
who doesn't comply with the established KDE policies.
You will not manage to make your case here, you have no case.
Just random noise and provocation, as usual. Don't you have anything better to do?

That's exactly what's happening - note how your account is still active -
so stop talking about power abuse.

(*) will the next version also "rm -rf $HOME/*" on startup, since you seem to 
think you have all rights about what you do in your app?
