I truly apologize for dumping buckets of opinions into the
"posting" "thread". I will say though, it's exhausting, annoying,
etc, but it's an important subject to us all, and this sort of
exhaustive crap actually does mix up ideas.

The one thing that links ASCII-based comm. is that it's as close
to a universal system as we've got. Us humans is flawed,
lowest-common-denominator is not an insult or a swear word.

Cultures change slowly, as they should -- or I should say,
things change fast enough as it is. Plain ASCII text for
presenting and delivering content means for us we concentrate
on the goddamn meaning instead of farting around with the

ASCII the only thing we all have in common. It's obvious, but
imagine the wall between us all if Microsoft, Apple, IBM, etc each
had their way.

No one makes money from ASCII, that's a good thing.
