"Tucows has an open letter to the BSD community at its BSD website. Basically, it says that Tucows accepts the overall failure of their BSD Channel and will no longer host their BSD resource on the web."

"Apparently, a power struggle between the BSD factions caused a "barrage of angry user comments." Tucows believes that the individual demands of each BSD faction are so unique that it became impossible to satisfy each group...."
