You know, I'm just a participant in a thread on a fairly noisy list.  I
don't participate in threads that do not interest me and I would advise you
to do the same rather than tell one of those who do to "stop it". I don't
think anyone here is Imperial Grand Poobah, nor does anyone here have
control over thread topics.  Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, and relax a little.

You can argue this point forever and each of us will continue to do what we 

At least none of you are of the school that sez  "thou shalt not run as root

*EVER* or your  <body part>  will fall off".

The rule "you break it, you fix it"  applies to all.
