8/18    Hey dim why did you switch your motd edit command? Do you actually
        think you can hide from editting motd? I can read OS logs ya know.
           \_ Who are you?  I'm wondering who would sorry someone
              for reading the logs to figure out who "anonymous" comments
              were written by.  --PeterM
              \_ The issue is that this cowardly fuck has a process which
                 automatically deletes anything I write using motdedit. It's
                 not about reading the logs, but about censorship and
                 harassment. This isn't some running feud, but a moron who is
                 obsessed with me. --dim
                 \_ tell us about the stars dim!
                 \_ I agree that having a process which automatically deletes
                    someone else's motd posts is squishable.  --PeterM
                    \_ unless that someone is a complete moronic troller
                       \_ No, you still can't auto edit a troller. Don't be
                          a twink.
                          \- ethics aside, why can't a motd terrorist
                             terrorize motd? what method do we have to
                             reliabily detect an act of terrorism, and
                             what can we do about it? how is deleting troll
                             worse than adding trolls? who are you to judge
                             troll or content? these questions beg deeper
                             discussions that has yet to begun.
                             \_ I thought current policy disallowed auto-
                                posters as well as auto-deleters?
                                \_ The politburo currently does not posses
                                   much awareness of the motd, but all users
                                   on soda have consented to abide by don't be
                                   a hozer guidelines.  Should anyone step
                                   far enough outside the hozing boundaries
                                   I will lobby them for the ability to squish.
                                   -mrauser
                             \_ Auto-deletion directly denies access
                                to the motd and thus prevents the free
                                exchange of ideas that is necessary for
                                a "marketplace of ideas" to function.
                                Auto-posting doesn't directly deny access,
                                and while it may drive people away from
                                the motd, the motd still remains accessible.
                                Thus, I think that auto-deletion, in which
                                you don't know what you lost, is a much
                                worse form of terrorist, than auto-posting,
                                which only makes it harder to find things.
                                Personally, I think both auto-posting and
                                auto-deletion need to be controlled for
                                the motd to function effectively.
        \_ Fuck off. You are dangerously close to getting sorried.
        \_ how are you determining if dim is editing the motd?  I edit the motd
           ALL THE TIME and no one has picked up my username(yet)
           \_ That's what I want to know. Why is this some secret? Are these
              OS logs world-readable? Please educate us in the name of Computer
              Science.
           \_ Who are you?  I'm wondering who would sorry someone
              for reading the logs to figure out who "anonymous" comments
              were written by.  --PeterM

9/26    I remember there was web version of the motd with search function
        (originally due to kchang ?).  The last time I used it it was hosted
        on the csua website but I can't remember its url (onset of dementia?)
        now. Can somebody plz post it, tnx.
