Moderators, Decklin Foster is absolutely right.  This Teddy Bytown creep
should be lashed in the fo'castle, thrown down to the hold, and banned
from nettime's decks.  A butt-biting twerp, he is.  There is no room for
humor on this ship, especially not Bytown's feeble insolence.

History will be improved through your efforts.
