Take a chill pill!

My only criticism would be that you generate a lot of noise because
you pick fights with Karl, but someone HAS to do it; it would be
irresponsible on all our parts if no one pointed out, for the lurkers
and googlers, that Karl's advice should be (for example, earlier this
week) either ignored (when he suggested the use sudo when the issue
was the lack of escape characters) or used as a contrarian guide (when
he suggested incorrect fstab settings for an nfs mount).
