Nick Daly appears to be a totally retarded emacs fan or somesuch.

"I may inadvertently start a flamewar, but Emacs has wonderful
bookmarking support. =C2=A0``C-x r m`` to bookmark any *line* in any
readable file (including PDFs, as of Emacs 23) and ``C-x r l`` to list
all your saved bookmarks. =C2=A0I use it for reading just about
and am currently making my way through the Dargonzine archives this

Of course, it falls down pretty badly in the UI department, they're
determined to do everything their ("the Emacs") way, and that takes
some getting used to."

or maybe he is an inverse troll...

Interestingly, his "Open Letter of Thanks to Alexander Terekhov" is not
propagated by my news server ( -- it
must have been automatically blocked as stupid spam junk...

Hey Daly, are you inverse troll or what?


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
