You probably should have created a new message rather then replying to 
another one - but lesson learnt and lifes to short to worry about it

As a general rules postings for linux advocacy, selling things etc is 
fine so long- if in doubt ask an admin.

It would have come from your twitter feed and also would have cycled 
away again pretty fast as the site only shows 3 tweets on the frontpage 
at a time

Out of interest if you do suceed in getting a pardon for Turing, what 
then? Who else do we then need to appologise to?
 I sometimes feel it seems fruitless making people apologise for the 
past, you can't change the past only learn from it and hope it doesn't 
happen again
