sorry, but in all that light it's not surprising that "Nagios
Enterprises, LLC" has another opinion. They base (parts of) their
business on the work of the Plugins Developers without contributing
anything back.

Play nice? From my point of view all actions was public, even when
representatives of "Nagios Enterprises, LLC" tried to force the
developers things to do or even not.

"Out of control" for just developing and maintaining a peace of
software that "Nagios Enterprises, LLC" is using and has "na*ios" in
it's name? For just naming some of the projects which are compatible
with the plugins on the website?!?

Why is this statement not send to the developers team? There are
written things, just without a proof of it or even pointing to the
sources. That's just all FUD about, as long as "Nagios Enterprises,
LLC" can't proof otherwise.

I hope it will be more patches, then the plugins projects has recieved
from "Nagios Enterprises, LLC" representatives!
