So, if you're like me, you get in arguments all the time with people on the Innurnet. And when you get in those arguments, you like to have URLs to point to so that people know that you're really fricken serious about what you're talking about, and not just some big blowhard know-it-all bastardo, which in fact I am. So having FAQS.org around has preserved the illusion that you and I are not big assholes, which in fact is only partially true.

Dig it: FAQS.org. Like, it's a site that keeps ALL the FAQs you need, in one easy site, for free, without stupid ads or flashy thingies. And it's been pretty damn permanent, up until now, so you could pretty much tell people that they were stupid, and they should read the relevant RFCs about how stupid they are, and also that the newsgroup to which they are currently subscribed is moderated, because of stupid people like them, and that if they weren't so stupid they'd know that, from reading the relevant FAQ, namely,

http://www.faqs.org/fa qs/by-newsgroup/alt/alt.stupidity.html

...or some such.

Anyways, I was just writing a big-ass flame email to stupid Yahoo! Groups, who are really stupid and make really retarded non-standard digests of their email group postings, which seriously pisses me off because then Gnus can't read the digest automatically, which means I have to slog through it by hand, which is absolutely WRONG because I am a busy man and I have no time for this.

And, of course, I was referring the butt-related persons at Yahoo! Groups to the relevant RFCs which show how butt-related they are (namely, 1341 and 1153), and I was checking the FAQS.org site to make sure these were the right ones, and I realized that FAQS.org has big scary WE NEED MONEY messages all over the place, so then I gave them money.

And then I wrote this article to get you to give them money, so it keeps going on. Because I don't want my cover blown, and I'm sure you don't either. So give FAQS.org some fucken money, eh!? Damn.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
