Believe it or not, Roy Schestowitz is actually his real name!
It has to be easy money for him. Why else would he do it?
But then again....maybe I'm wrong.

Comp.os.linux.advocacy is a place where you come to be entertained.
Sit down, read the lunacy and laugh.
The best part is you can thank the mighty Lord, or some one celled

not one bit like these loonies.
COLA is pure entertainment, and good entertainment at that!
