Except that he happened to do what the majority of KDE contributors agree with:
showing our support for the fight against software patents. Remember how we had
a link to the anti-patent site for EVER on the frontpage? Where were you then?

A revert request WAS made when someone committed an "old europe" credit,
as Scott just reminded us. The revert request for your nonsense remains,
and action WILL be taken if it doesn't happen.

and is NOT something new for the KDE front page anyway.

Enough from me, back to actual bugfixing.
