Re: Cisco in bed with the commies!
I always thought that this forum should be politically agnostic. I would hope that "religious" arguments be kept to ATM versus Gigabit Ethernet, and not whether the US government should allow certain technologies (that, by the way, encourage open and uncensored dialogue) to be exported to different countries. If Vadim wants to complain about the capitalistic system, let him go to alt.politics.complain. Vadim, I disagreed with you prior on your stance regarding this topic. Your moralistic stance was commendable, except that it came about as a direct attack upon a company, and it came through not as something that should be measured for its merits, but as a personal attack upon that company, and your firm belief that other companies would never do such a thing(specifically Cisco).
