Digium, WTF?

Today i visited Asterisk community forums and got this:

Information
You have been permanently banned from this board.
Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.
A ban has been issued on your username.

My last post was a answer in thread were someone was asking for g.729 codec for the ARM platform. I proposed to test my patch for the bcg729 codec and was permanently banned with all my posts deleted 🙂

Just in case:

  1. I am not implementing g.729 functionality and using open-source GPLv2 project bcg729 available in the net.
  2. You might have to pay royalty fees to the G.729 patent holders for using their algorithm.
  3. The G.729 codec from Digium is supported for use only on Linux x86 and x86_64 environments.

I already wrote mail to the board administrator, but i think they are just banning everyone with non-blob g.729 implementation. I would recommend them to spend some time for porting their solution to more platforms instead 🙂
