And I had no intention of answering it, because I don't believe that the
answering does anything to advance the aims of this group; but you seem to
think the answer is important to have, so you'll have it.

I believe that any standard I would agree with under which Erinn's response
is unacceptable would also hold that this entire discussion, and every
contribution to it, is also unacceptable.

In any case, I would consider it justified, because I believe it's true and
accurate; but not everything that can be justified is ultimately beneficial.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
