Certainly. Your point appears to be that you are too ignorant to know that Unix mode bits are represented in octal, not decimal.

[ "rw-rw-rw-" is 666 in base 8, which is 438 in decimal. "666" in decimal corresponds to Unix mode "--w--rx-wt", not that either one has any religious connotations whatsoever. It must be nice to not have any genuine or substantive problems to deal with, if this actually matters to anyone.... ]

Please don't do this. This is off-topic and is a flame-war starting.

To the person that started this discussion, if you feel offended by the
use of 666 in an example, you should either email [EMAIL PROTECTED] to
bring it up, or file a PR asking it to be changed.  This is the wrong
list for this discussion.

To everyone else.  If the person who started this thread is not a troll,
he certainly posted a message that had the effect of trolling.  Please
don't feed.
