They say these statistics are based on user agent. But my user agent is:
Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0
It doesn't mention Slackware. In such case, I wouldn't be classified as Slackware user, right?

My actual thought is that the Patreon account will become "blessed" by our BDFL at some point (I'm guessing when it's able to sell some swag - hats, shirts, and so forth).

Is the Facebook post enough for you guys or are you going to wait until Pat posts here?

I don't trust anything that comes from Farcebook

The point is that if I'm not on facebook, how would I see the effing post in the first place unless someone else tells me about it.
