    Yes, they do. (I think it is funny you did not get the joke and reacted
    so seriously.)

    That is what I was saying. You make YOUR choice, I make MY choice.
    People who previously did not know about the rcwhatever now are able to
    make THEIR choice.

    Please also try to read the things I wrote with a smile. I am making fun
    of the fact that sysadmins and programmers sometime go so much into
    details discussing things that are absolute not important and that there
    are always different things to do things.
    It is almost as if they were posting on Usenet.
