Capitalism 1, Open Source 0

As Matt Mullenweg has pointed out in his blog post, Pligg is selling out, Vanilla is adding spammy links and guess which other open source program will be sponsored by other shady SEO's -- not for the sake of advancing free software ideology, but that they can resell massive amount of link-love for commercial gains. Should have seen this coming with the recent WordPress theme fiasco. Maybe the real enemy of open source is not the competition from proprietary software firms, but the lure of capitalism.
