:) Start Page family filter ;). However, I can do research myself. I
Didn't know about the "kkkubuntu" jokes, but I like it, sarcasm is a
good way to stand the hard reality. Ok, it's unfair, since likely most
Kubnutu folks don't sympathy with the KKK.

dyslexics and they might see the same shit that I see, while it isn't
really there :S.

However, my first impression was "Golden Dawn", than  noticed that I was
