GOAL: To remove certain unnecessary threads from misc@ while, at the
same time, ensuring that the entertainment value is retained for those
who may find it amusing to participate in the threads.
PROBLEM: A certain person is making comments which are not, either
partially or entirely, in the spirit of the misc@ list. Since the
OpenBSD team has never been about censorship, banning him is not an option.
SOLUTION: Create a new list: darrenhate_(_at_)_openbsd_(_dot_)_org_(_dot_)_ When a certain
someone special sends in an e-mail to misc@, it will be redirected into
darrenhate_(_at_)__(_dot_)_ That special someone will receive misc@ and darrenhate@,
but the latter messages will be altered so that darrenhate@ is changed
to misc@, so as to keep our special someone in the dark. In this way,
those who wish to follow these infantile rantings or split hairs with
someone obsessed with the absurd may do so. For those of us who have
already seen a guy make a complete ass of himself in a public forum,
pissing away the good name he has built up over a number of years,
well... we'll just make sure we don't subscribe to that particular list.
CREDIT: Today's nonsense inspired me to write this nonsense. The credit
goes completely to Darren. I've watched this whole pissing match
between Darren and Theo unfold from the beginning. Normally, I wouldn't
be inclined to offer any assistance to Darren, but today I'm going ot
put aside, for a moment, the fact that it seems obvious to me that Theo
has always had the moral high ground, and has never given an inch of it
to Darren. I'm going to give you a piece of advice, and it is a good
piece of advice for any person to keep in mind: you have lost the
pissing match when you are trying to piss on everyone and all you are
managing to do is piss on yourself. You should stop. You've been doing
it so long now that people can smell you a mile away.
