9/19    X11R6.4 has been freed!
        \_ now they should free CDE, so that we can get on with life
           and not have to duplicate so much effort.
           \_ Probably too late for that...

9/19    Scorched MOTD policy still in effect.  Censorship sucks.  It also cuts
        both ways.  Think twice next time before deleting someone else's debate
        simply because you disagree or are tired of reading it.
        \_ ln -s /dev/null /etc/motd.public
        \_ Get a life fucker.  No one cares about you or this silly
                Scorched MOTD crap you made up to grow your over-inflated ego.
        \_ It was necessary to burn the village in order to save it?
           sometimes or it grows without bounds.  --PeterM
        \_ What's this debate about anyway?  The motd needs to be trimmed
           sometimes or it grows without bounds.  It's volatile by nature.
           If you want your words immortalized, how about taking up
           cuneiform or masonry?  --PeterM
           \_ I think the idea is that, if the motd is to be trimmed, it should
              be trimmed only on the basis of age and not on the basis of
              content; scorching the motd is a protest against any censorship
              of particular content (as often happens).  -- not the motd nuker
              \_ Although censorship is bad you've got to admit that
                 there's a difference between something like CNN and Rush
                 Limbaugh.  One insults the intelligence of the audience.
                 That's why one is a fad that went away in about a year
                 and the other is a respectable news organization. Rush's
                 content is immature and superficial yet aimed at an
                 educated and mature audience.
                 \_ What does that have to do with scorched MOTD?
              \_ you're right.  even idiots need a place to speak their
                 mind.  After all, no one normal in the real world would
                 ever listen to them.
        \_ you're all silly --root
