OT: I don't know what to think of people asking questions like these on
a mailing list like this. I find it hard to believe that they are
legitimate worries from a user who is unable to google the normal IT
news sources, but don't know how much little w*nkers /really/ enjoy
yanking our chains for the fun of it. Maybe a brief maturity entrance
exam should be administered when people subscribe to the list?
