Hear, hear!

<rant>People have gone off into a bazillion different communications
tools, which rather stunts communication.

I am sick and tired of installing some software (OK, not that "apt
install ..." is all that hard), open yet another account, hand my email
address over to likely spammers (not that they don't have it already),
etc., etc. just to ask a question and not get an answer.</rant>

"When we talk of civilization, we are too apt to limit the meaning of
the word to its mere embellishments, such as arts and sciences; but
the true distinction between it and barbarism is, that the one
presents a state of society under the protection of just and
well-administered law, and the other is left to the chance government
of brute force."
- The Rev. James White, Eighteen Christian Centuries, 1889
