Sorry, but I just can't stand it anymore.

John, I believe that you have summed up well enough the image that the
person posting on this list as "Victor" stated as his position.  What
you are not saying is how obvious it is that he knows VERY little about
Linux and/or Unix in any form.  The questions he has been posting make
it obvious that he is painfully lacking in practical experience in any
OS that is subject to discussion on this list.

As such, I have resorted to just deleting without any consideration any
message from him, and most of those in threads I recognize as started by

Again, I'm sorry for the rant, but I got to the point where I had to
blow off some steam on this silly issue.
