Waitaminit, @business_kid ... you just referred to "a white list!" Isn't that racist?

I agree, as is "blacklist," the latter, in fact even more so. From my days playing with anti-spam software, I just used those terminology. Now the $64,000 question: Can you suggest a better pair of terms? I'll post the Spamassassin bug, and you join the LKML and post the kernel bug?

Well, I thought it was funny. This is an international forum. This thread draws on the world's sense of humour.

Is this the longest running thread on LQ? I have not visited here for long but this thread still shows up. Has been up there for almost 10 years.

That's the quote, is it? Or was it your sigfile? Marrying the daughter of the boss seems to be the oldest trick in the book, but the biggest disadvantage of that can often be the lady herself

EDIT: On the oldest thread, the 'Faith & Religion Megathread' (also in general) has been up there since 2007.

If you're just saying oldest, find the 1st 1 but I doubt it's not just "hay what's up?"

There's a few more like that: "What do you listen now?", "An advice for a good movie to watch ?", etc.
