The RFC in question . . .

Which one is that? I didn't know there was a single RFC in question.

And I didn't even post in the thread you linked to. (Update: I see you fixed the link, but I still don't see the "cock-up" you refer to. I think you are sadly confused. Salva's responses in this thread, btw, have only reinforced that I was answering the question he was asking.)

Update: Approximate mentions of " UTF" or "Unicode" in RFCs by year.

1992: 4 1993: 6 1994: 177 1995: 17 1996: 93 1997: 334 1998: 233 1999: 395 2000: 377 2001: 173 2002: 194 2003: 581 2004: 321 2005: 418 2006: 739 2007: 392 2008: 755 2009: 297 2010: 874 2011: 502 2012: 275

    I didn't know there was a single RFC in question.

    That explains a lot.

    You didn't bother to read the post to which you responded, or follow the links it contained; just knee-jerked a pointless response to a closing comment that had little to do with the main text of that post.

    And now try to further distract with a bunch of meaningless, irrelevant statistics unrelated to anything in particular.

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

      I see. Well, in my defense, it was easy to read:
      Things (will) get far more messy once the RFCs start dealing with Unicrap.

      And think that by using the plural "RFCs" you were talking about more than one... like all of them in general. Or, at the least, all of them related to FTP.

      Of course, it's unlikely that the FTP RFCs will be greatly affected by "unicrap" because unicode is just binary.

      If you still don't see where I was coming from, there's no point in continuing. Truly.
