To Matthias Apitz
I read with interest your contribution and those of others in text editor 
usage. In this I do not have much to contribute as I am so far perfectly 
happy with vi.
BUT I noticed  your political comment at the end of your contribution. I find 
this out of place as this questions site is for  FreeBSD problems and  not 
political ones. Could you please take your political comments and  place them 
on appropriate sites where such comments belong. I keep with president Barack 
Obama, who has a law degree from Harvard and sees the necessity to set up a 
commission to analyse the matter before taking  part in the 
international "howling choir" against Israel.
Yours sincerely
Richard Farnes
