This thread really needs to end on this list, but I am going to respond to the below email to this list since it was sent to this list.
Viewpoints on religion, politics or myself are not what I asked. I simply want to know why cvsup666 was used as an example in the freebsd handbook. That's it. Why not either answer the question if you know why, and if you don't why not simply not say anything? I do not agree with the below email and I am completely confident that reading 666 does not mean I am going to hell. I know it does not. If you know why the cvsup example that was used was, then please email me directly, not the list. zerotransfer <>< ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jimi Thompson" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Saturday, February 22, 2003 3:17 PM Subject: Fwd: Cvsup Handbook Example > Since the major portion of the world's misery, both past and present, > can be directly attributed to organized religion, I find this > incessant prattling about the "demon" (INTENTIONAL misspelling) logo > and some of the other things like this thing below to be totally > offensive. >The Middle East is in a shambles and those people have > been squabbling for 5000 years over who's ideas about God are right. > Europe has fared no better and neither has the New World - just ask > the Native Indian population.
