God Karl, you are seriously one good troll.
Buddy, there is a rule in place about linux, it's called YMYR
Your machine, your rules. Basically I can do as I please. Your
practices aren't worth anything to me, because half the time they
don't work for me.
Here's a thought, stop being pig-headed and learn that your methods
are just yours, not superior or even preferable.
