	Now that is just silly. While I have not had the time, or the
 inclination to participate in this thread until now, that does not
 mean that I do not have my own opinion about this (or any other
 method of limiting posting based not on content, but by some other
 inane criteria [poster has already posted N times! poster uses the
 letter u an odd number of times!]), nor that my opinion is merely
 moulded by the most prolific poster.

	Indeed, your insinuation that the average debian developer is
 a brainless sheep to vote as dictated by the didactic raving of any
 poster with "time and energy and dialectical capabilities" is pretty
 insulting, and I can only hope is not spoken from experience.

The best book on programming for the layman is "Alice in Wonderland";
but that's because it's the best book on anything for the layman.
