There are lies and there are damn lies. There is a character named "Sara" in
the game who drives something like a trike crossed with a snowmobile. She
wears a long green dress. There is a monkey named "Suzanne". There is a
panda named "Amanda". Please go and spread your FUD somewhere else, where
people don't or won't think for themselves.

And please try going one day without using the word "should". You might find
that you will win more friends and influence others, in a positive manner.
The use of "should" or "must" implies that you assume a moral highground so
lofty that it precludes anyone else from having a thought in the matter.

Please, try to keep the discussion civil, avoiding personal attacks,
being respectful and assuming good faith, as Debian's CoC [1]
recommends us to do.

You might be served better to follow your own advice.

Is that ALL that you gleaned from my post? That it was a personal attack? And then quote to me the CoC? I double dog dare you to post this to the rules committee. Please. Be sure to copy Ian Murdock and Bruce Perens as well. Be my guest, and have a nice day. :) Ric

p/s the bit about "shoulds" is clinical, and well documented. We teach inmates not to do that, so they don't wind up hitting each other. It's not a bad concept to hold. So, go back through all of your posts to read all of your "should" and "must" statements, which the rules committee will see as well.

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
