Come on Martin, no need to call names, and personally attack anyone. I can see how that can be frustrating, especially after providing a great link, and the ability to use the RFC # so easily, and you made your point well, but by pulling out the section above and below your point you will have still made your point, and without the personal attacks.
When newbs come to ask questions, and get great answers, just because they do not use the answer doesn't mean they should be the object of attack from the author of the great advice.
That and maybe they were hoping to find something on their system to use in such a situation.
Just thought I should mention this, because I was there once, and in fact am still alot of the time (and I am sure you once were too, unless you helped to developed Linux, in which case, congratulations).
Thank you sir for your excellent response above though, that was very helpful.
