No contest. Your opinion -v- mine, of course!

If I understand your problem, I can solve it! Of course, the same can be said for you.

    Over 10 years ago I started a holy war on CompuServe, which resulted in a lot of threads, with (for that time) record sizes. And it still is a bit of a holy war for me:

    What is guilty of more murder, death, starvation, mutilation and damage: religion or politics?

    My answer was and still is: religion is more guilty.
    My solution: knowledge is better than beliefs (but please don't forget we're mere humans, flawed and emotional).

    With that discussion, I made mortal enemies and life-long friends, to this very day. And heck, it was rough but more civilized than would be possible on usenet.

    But that's another holy war: moderated vs. unmoderated.

    (Corrected spelling error)

      Spelling: s/believes/beliefs/;
      My idea (well not originally): s/knowledge/ideas/; meaning ideas are better than religionbeliefs. You can change an idea (and knowledge is hard to come by).
      As for which is more guilty? I'd say religion and politics (there ain't no difference between the two).

      I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    Yep, my favorite holy wars are those where at least I know I'm right. Wait, that's all of them!
