I've never seen such a thing on any of the FreeBSD lists that I'm on,
and spam does leak through about once per day.  Perhaps it goes to the
postmaster and never makes it to the subscribers.

These guys are running Windoze too - check out the uptime stats...


Pull open the glass door, feel the rush of cool air, walk inside, get in
line, and look around you, look at the kids working in the kitchen, at the
customers in their seats, at the ads for the latest toys, study the
backlit color photographs above the counter, think about where the food
came from, about how and where it was made, about what it set in motion by
every single fast food purchase, the ripple effect near and far, think about
it.  Then place your order.  Or turn and walk out the door.  It's not too
late.  Even in this fast food nation, you can still have it your way.
