cdfrey: that's true. I don't know why I bothered.

We should do something about the spammer problem. For a site meant for hackers, this is an embarrassment.

Crackpots

Each and every news article on the web covering the events now unfolding at a certain far-east country is littered with comments written by religious wackos, who seem to be convinced that this is all the doing of a bearded Galactus-like superbeing in the sky, outraged at the refusal by the population of the aforementioned country to accept and embrace their religion of love and compassion. (The claim that it's a religion of love and compassion, while apparently at odds with the implication that their imaginary friend has just murdered tens of thousands of people on a whim, is to be accepted without questioning, because a horrible book written by pig-ignorant savages before flush toilets were invented says that it is so.) The same crackpots wrote similar things about the recent disaster in Haiti. (You know, voodoo.)

Up to now, I've always evaded the question whenever someone mentioned religion, careful not to offend anyone. But you know what? I'll finally get out of the closet and say it: I'm an atheist. That's right, I'm not even agnostic. If accepting your religion in order to go to heaven means I'll have to endure the company of you nutsos for the rest of eternity, I'd rather burn in hell. You make me sick to my stomach.

By the way, I've donated today.
