Are they truly dishonest? Or is it simply the case that one among many
messages that I post accidently contains an error? Just because you don't
like the subject lines does not /necessarily/ make them erroneous. It is a
Linux advocacy newsgroup. It's not your daily news, whose purpose is to
present both sides no matter which one is rightful and which side's argument
isn't even worth attention. Even newspapers, I might add, are inclined to
please their funding sources, so there's a hidden agenda and bias.
~~ Kind greetings and happy holidays!
