    Ah; ok.  It's just that this isn't the first time that
"angrykeyboarder" has gone out of his way to be offended by the word
"Christ" in my signature...but no harm- no foul.

   But I get your point; much like when a lot of Christians were
screaming "No making a .XXX domain!" I was saying "PLEASE DO!"  It's
just so much easier to filter them out, if they're all in one domain!


   Heck, these guys are entrepanuers; tell'em they can no longer have
.com, .net or .org and they'll pool money to buy some nation's unused
country-code domain. (Remeber .tv?)  We should legalize spam for the
same reason....and then put all of them into .spam, and if they're
caught using anything else, we rip their heads off.

   If nothing else, it feels good to think about... ;>
