By having a mechanism such as this, some monks may participate in the flamewars, and others can happily go about their business without being burdened by the unnecessary noise.
What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof. - Christopher Hitchens
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
