        \_ Isn't it a acronym for Fornication Under Consent of King?
           \_ Also "fornicate under carnal knowledge" and a long list of
              \_ see below
           \_ that's folk etymology. a.k.a. myths. the earliest known
              usage, contrary to webster, is 1308 [OED], which very
              distinctively marks it as a verb and places it in
              context that makes any acronym-based derivation unlikely
              (the postulated acronym source just can't be old
              enough). also note cognates (NOT borrowed) in 2 north
              germanic languages; chances are this word has been
              around since mid-first millenium AD at the very least.  -alexf

        piece of software:
        \_ uh, what's so '1337 about this?  it looks like any other 3d game to
           me, except for being Christian
           \_ if you have to ask, you don't know.
              \_ well, DUH.  If I knew, I wouldn't be asking.
                \_ Those who tell don't know, those who know don't tell.

11/24   Is there anyway to keep all that spam mail from Taiwan going
        through the Soda system?  I'm starting to get sick of it.  To
        whom can I forward copies of the spam mail?  It's always a
        different user, like this time it was from lover@soda - but
        all the return addresses are to Taiwan... and of course, it is
        like all in Chinese which blends real well with my Japanese
        fonts making some really ugly output.  --mtbb
        \_ Use procmail.  If return-address = taiwan, purge.
                \_ bouncing mail with a non-resolvable host
                   works great for me. if you can't reply to a mail,
                   it is not worth reading. --aaron
                        \_ That works, too.  Pick your poison.  I filter all
                           spam into a folder and check the headers once a
                           week just in case, then zap the whole thing.
