I would like to draw everyone's attention to a problematic movement in our community (alongside many others in the Brazil ) .
Moodle Partners program has jeopardized the future of free education in our country .
This advertising program is concentrating solutions based on Moodle in the hands of private companies and educational holdings millionaires who just take advantage of the work of the community and feature proprietary solutions disguised as " software as a service" ( SaaS ) with no return to the community , not attending the annual meetings ignoring all invitations .
This type of advertising and partnership has endangered any initiative of professionals and nonprofit groups , this program is a threat to free market competition .
Advertising is something that influences the " curious " and " ignorant " . The way Moodle Partners program emphasizes these big companies goes against the principles of free software and promoting the monetization of education , taking advantage of what is open to empower those who already holds .
We do not need money , we need dedication and love . Moodle needs to be again love the style of internet
