I think it may be an excellent idea to _ask_ the other non-debian
members of the linux community and see what they think. We can
talk all we want, and it won't change what they think we're doing.
If the rest of the linux world doesn't mind if we run under
firstname.lastname@example.org (especially if that email address is just added
to the total for email@example.com), then all is well and good. If they
think we're impertenent snobs, perhaps we should change.
As a side note:
Harvey Mudd should be producing somewhere between 3 and 4 M kps by
tomarrow. Right now, most of us are running under firstname.lastname@example.org,
but we can change that if Bruce still disagrees with our possition.
