Re: [syndication] Re: [decentralization] The Scripting News Train
- Since Douglas Adams died yesterday, I spent some time this morning reading
about his life through the Web and came across this quote.
"I long ago stopped answering questions on the alt.fan.douglas-adams usenet
group, because it never produced good results. I would either get flamed
with 'Don't try and pretend you're him!' mail, or accounts of what I'd said
would get bounced around in more and more garbled versions as soon as my own
reply had dropped off the stack.'"
Perhaps in honor of his memory we could try to be more accepting of other
points of view. I'd like to participate in these groups as a full member,
and with the respect that comes with that.
