Seems like an unreasonable amount of ire to bring to a post that is actually
related to Linux. Given that there is only a single mailing list for the
nSLUG which is described thusly: "This E-mail list is used as a general
discussion board on broad range of topics from Linux support to indepth
discussion on kernel hacking." I can't see how posting this article could be
considered off topic.

However, as I've been proposing an nslug-talk mailing list all day, I would
be remiss if I didn't point out that having such a list dedicated to general
'talk' would give a home to discussions like this that irk members who are
here for more technical fodder.
