Na, you're right, and the world is moving on from dinosaurs like me who 
still create Root and User accounts and abhor Sudo as a diabolical n00b 
way round a perfectly sensible security precaution.

I support "inclusion" 100% and nobody should feel unable to 'join in' 
regardless of their social background, education or skill level. Sadly 
there are still those running around the community who display (IMO) 
"The arrogance of intelligence"

While I'll hold my hand up as a participant in a few flame wars myself 
the ones I wasn't involved in are great entertainment with a bowl of 
popcorn. :-)

I miss the good old days when the Internet was like the Wild West.

By the Pond Gods! I've posted more in the last few days than I have in 
the last five years. LOL
