software patents directly affect ffmpeg, should we ignore that?
I still have not seen an argument for why politics should not be
involved on ffmpeg. only some strawman argument about kittens on

no one limited our website statements to US-only.
There have only been two statements by ffmpeg on non-ffmpeg internet
items in the past 10+ years, looking at the news and archived news.
November 20, 2011
FFmpeg supports the fight against American Internet censorship.
and then the widget we are discussing today.
I see some people complaining about so much politics, but two posts in
10 years ? that is what you are upset about ?
please help me understand your problem with this.
Aside from these, which i think everyone is in agreement with.
1. popup ad is annoying , news entry would be better
2. no reason to have a popup page on the docs pages.
i'm not trying to be dismissive, i want to understand. please explain
also no one has said why net neutrality is political at all. its a
technical problem, and ffmpeg is all about technical problems.
ssl heartbleed was a technical problem that was also posted to our news
page. i dont remember the vitriol about that ssl news post.
