Not much more than the original posting... Except that if you finish reading
it you'd see that it is something which plagues this list. So I thought
Thank you Theo for breaching the subject, why the hell not...

I'm willing to be the fool here. You tell me what the purpose with 'DARPA
one year later..' was. It seems like it is vaguely related to OpenBSD but
only for a split second. Then it becomes clear, it is a political statement
of how Theo sees the actions of Bush's war. I'm sure he's right too. But
that's not the point.

Fascinating though how you read the Unabomber into this as my point is the
very opposit. There's plenty of unfriendly attitude facing many
unsuspecting people here. And I bet $10 that you did not finish reading it
before replying. Thus taking my political statement about this OpenBSD list
out of context enough to make it somehow sound like the Unabomber's
manifesto. (And I doubt you refer to the fact that Theo appears to be in
the unfortunate position of sharing his first name with the Unabomber.)
