After takin' a swig o' grog, Kier belched out this bit o' wisdom:

Ahhh, that does make sense.  Still, for missives, text-to-speech should
work well enough.  (Not for code, though, I would guess.)

I agree, but I was skeptical nonetheless.  I remember getting suckered
by a fake post from "Linus Torvalds".

Simple.  Read "her" post and think a bit.

To be fair, I'm sure RMS/Karl don't know about COLA, and so the
cross-post didn't raise any red flags.

I'm pretty sure I made some mistakes in this thread <wry grin>.

One more thing.  Just wanted to make it clear that I am a big fan of GNU
and the GPL.  There would be no "Linux" distros without it.  And the FSF
is to be commended for working hard to preserve a very endangered part
of "the Commons", and, in fact, enlarging it.  And I agree with most of
what RMS has to say.

Perhaps I should change my street name to "GNU/Linønut"!

Q:  Why does a GNU/Linux user compile his kernel?
A:  Because he can.
