Proprietary software is software that you are not free to use, copy, modify, and study as you like. It's a form of abuse of users, which sucks and makes people depressed; it gives suits power over creatives.

"Something that is not relevant or important at the time"
Why did you not tell me my breath stinks,

A person who belongs to a CORPORATION entirely due to a system of GOVERNANCE within that very corporation that has a marked commonality of stature violations where prison in this case would not be an optimal resolvement measure.

A play on PA sexually where it is an older person who belongs to that subclass

Finally, the SQUIRT ASSH0LE is not inside as it is fact .
The prioruty from the bottom to the top definition.

In fact that SQUIRT ASSH0LE , " OK has value" but due to entanglements is a PROPRIETARY ASSH0LE and without being redundant must keep transcending corporate GOVERNANCE punishments

Seriously I am sexually mature PROPRIETARY ASSH0LE who has very KINKY TENDENCUES..

ANAL ALAN used the handle on a CANADIAN GAY dating site that discerned him as a JEWISH HOMOSEXUAL COPROPHILE PEDOPHILE and as a result hence became a PROPRIETARY ASSH0LE as others on the dating site inside the governance deduced his illegal sexual activities in the past.

Astro Headsets are semi proprietary
