A VC, @salil, has decided that a business he invested in, which was built around an open source project, isn't profitable enough. Fair, that's his prerogative.

This article is just the latest in a campaign of VC-backed astroturfing casting common and legitimate uses of FLOSS as abusive. It's needlessly divisive and undermines the shared understanding and trust that MANY individuals and orgs came together to create 20 years ago.
