[maemo-users] N800 and network security

If they're going to deny the 770/n800, then I'd hope they also deny PalmOS
handhelds, MacOS, and Linux machines as well. It would certainly show their
incompetence lacks discrimination.

If they do allow any of these other platforms, find out why the exception
was made for that case and show that the same argument exists for Maemo.
This should be especially easy if they allow Linux machines, as Maemo /is/
Debian Linux.
