You introduce a new concept -- forcing -- that's absent in my consideration. But the fact is that there's no forcing in it: if I freely decide to ignore noise, I'm not being forced either by others or by me.

Hey! Up to Dec 16, 2007 I was named frodo72, take note of the change! Flavio
perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

Io ho capito... ma tu che hai detto?

    If that's what turned you off, please allow me to rephrase:

    If the censorship is put on you through any way by others, I pray for you. If the censorship is put on you by yourself through any way, I call you an idiot.

      I'm mildly curious about what's exactly turning you off, please allow me to reprase:

      If I freely choice to ignore something marking it as "noise", the whole concept of "censorship" does not apply.

      So, you're surely allowed to both pray for me and call me names. Apart from considering it a complete waste of time, it could probably make your day and I'm happy with this. What I'm saying is that your consideration is out of context, for the simple reason that the whole concept of "censorship" does not apply. You can skip all this pseudo-dialectic and just call me idiot :)

        I don't think it is neccessary for me to call you anything, since you already did so. I am not a follower, but a creator.

        After all, it is not about concept or definition. Truth won't come to you, but you can come to truth.

        Reading the message you sent to me in private, I realize that you didn't even knew that I was playing logic game and being mean to you in my first reply. I probably shouldn't have done that to you, I was too quick to respond ;-)

        Any way, you are probably a good man, and I wish you a merry Xmas. Please also do understand me, and trust that I only kill rats not people.

[MidLifeXis]: heh.
[MidLifeXis]: Most likely it is a code that some undocumented system, hidden behind layers of IT, deep in the bowels of the building under the machine room floor, reads that code to keep a presence switch from going off. :-b
[MidLifeXis]: I think I forgot "running on a farm of commodore 64, vic 20s, trs 80s, and apple ]|[e systems"
[GotToBTru]: oh I know what it is .. but it is a number only slightly useful to me and of no possible use to our customer
[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
[MidLifeXis]: I have a user who has a lot of say on how some of our processes work that abhors significant blanks. Perhaps that is a part of it. A not-so-obvious "this space intentionally left blank" indicator.
