   Your strawmen get more ridiculous by the minute.

Strawmen? It is _you_ who claimed that a FTP client was not part of
the GNU system.

   And so forth and so on.  You think those guys are lying and in reality
   this code has been written by RMS, or what?

What does RMS writting things have to do with this?  Must everything
that is part of the GNU system have to be written by RMS or something?
I guess since that isn't the case, large parts of GNU Emacs are really
not part of the GNU system since they where not written by RMS.
Neither is GDB in its current state part of the GNU system since RMS
didn't write this current reincarnation of GDB.

Seriously, what is wrong with you today, David?

   I find it amazing that you live in your fairy world where you let
   no realities intrude on your "insights" seemingly solely based on
   reading the GNU Manifesto and interpreting it as gospel instead of
   a statement of intent and persuasion.

So you don't like the GNU manifesto, or the GNU web pages, what about
the GCS?  I guess that too is gospel.

But all knowing David is obviously right, we aren't _really_
developing an operating system, we are mearly assembling it.  We
didn't _really_ write compilers, editors, and what not; it was all
verbatim from BSD4.4...  Nah, it is I who live in the fairy land where
the whole point of the GNU project is to `develop the GNU operating
system'; me and the rest of the GNU hackers including St. IGNUcius and
Karl Berry who actually wrote the above pragraph.
