While I am not exactly sure what that had to do with this newsgroup,
I find it slightly bizarre that the reactions should be so negative and 
vehement.  Especially the latter, coming from someone involved in 
education.  If your students could hear you now...

I can understand people complaining about things like MAKE.MONEY.FAST, 
but get a grip!  Perhaps the religious association of the original post
was weird, though...

Stunned,

Cybele.
