Ignorance of the law son is no accuse.  I'm afraid that by the power vested
in me by the AMLR(Anal Mailing List Readers) I'm gonna have to take you in =>

Come on people, it was an ad.  If you didn't want to read it then you
shouldn't have.  I can remember a while back some ads being posted to the
mailing list and everyone then get so riled up about it then so what gives
now.  I kinda liked the ad and I regret having deleted it.  Not even the
people on the linux kernel mailing list get this uptight about off topic
mail and trust me, out of the 90 or so messages they got, a lot weren't
about kernel development.  Oh well, Maybe they're less forgiving, I know
some of them have been a lot more helpful, not that the three or so people
that reply to questions with actual substance aren't helpful.  I mean,
shouldn't we be spending more time on trying to help fellow coders solve
their problems.  I mean come on know, I got more input back from a snippet
of circlemud code sent to the linux kernel mailing list, mistakingly of
course, then I did from this Mailing list, and the people on the LKML didn't
scream at me because I posted something that was way off topic.  Well, I
guess that's enough ranting for now.  Please direct all flames to this
message to and not

Thank You and Have a nice day.  BTW, Mud, Could you send me another copy of
that add, I like knowing what muds offer before going and wasting my limited
time on them.
