    Would be interesting, wouldn't it.  I mean you are talking about a
collective of individuals who have decided that some software should be
funded.  Just because they say it is "in the public interest" doesn't mean the
public wants or even cares about their opinions.

    gmane.org, you mean the mail<->news gateway?  Gee, wonder why they would
have a higher hit for mailing list traffic....  Hmmm, might be that pesky part
about them being a mail<->news gateway.  Again, Google obscures nothing.  Just
because Google doesn't return the hits you're expecting doesn't mean they're
obscured, either.  Just means your search is not specific enough.  No more, no
less.  Hardly anything insidious in that.

    So you claim.  And your proof is... what?

    Sorry, mine's more of a pony compared to that war charger you're on.  How
