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.
