Re: [vox] [fwd] Save your SCO invoice: Bay Area Software Professionalsfor Responsibility and Accountability]

hey Bill,
Would it be OK if I forwarded this post to another LUG list that I'm on? They've been having a discussion (about SCO of course) that could benefit from this input.
I couldn't see a problem, but I thought it best to ask anyway. We all know what happens when you copy stuff without people's expressed permission ;-)

Subject: [svlug] Save your SCO invoice: Bay Area Software Professionals for
Responsibility and Accountability
To: svlug@lists.svlug.org, baspra-announce@alt.org
If you receive an "invoice" from The SCO Group, please do not waste it
on a prank or expression of contempt for SCO -- they're certainly
expecting that. If you want to do something symbolic with your
"SCO invoice", make a copy.

After careful consideration, you may decide to give the false invoice
to law enforcement as part of a request to investigate SCO for fraud.

We are starting a low-traffic announce-only mailing list to share
information on Bay Area community responses to the SCO invoice
scam, which will most likely include giving the "invoices" to law

Who: Bay Area Linux users, especially anyone who thinks that he or she may receive a false invoice from The SCO Group

What: Mailing list for announcements regarding local responses to
SCO's fraudulent mailing

Where: Sacramento, probably, that's where California Attorney General Bill Lockyer is.

When: Subscribe now, more info after the "invoices" come.

Why: Because we're software professionals who are for responsibility
and accountability (see subject).

Doing some symbolic action with your "invoice" may be satisfying
or attention-getting, but SCO is expecting this. But as soon
as they use false claims to attempt to get money from anyone,
they're doing something that is at least legally questionable,
and that you may wish to have law enforcement take a look at.

Please _save_ the "invoice" and envelope.
