Y'all are going to bust a vein on this one.
So far, on *.debian.org, I've found a great many people who actively
hate Jesus, this german who apparently has familiar views on Jews (as
does frighteningly much of Europe), and a whole bunch of college
professors who actively hate America.
And everybody has communistic views on the business world.
And, for third parties reading this in future, just look at what they're
getting ready to do to *me*.
Just for those keeping a scorecard. (I just want to be able to link to
this post in future to completely destroy your credibility).
