What the heck people, is it neccesary to be interface snobs? I doubt
that anyone uses forums because "the web is cool". They use forums
because it's their preferred interface for communicating with others. My
preferred interface is vi + mutt, but what's the point of dissing someone
else because that's not their cup of tea?

The forum rules because it means more people getting into puredata,
more community, and eventually better software for all of us. Don't like
it? Don't use it.
