Dear diary, on Wed, Nov 27, 2002 at 08:02:55AM CET, I got a letter,
where David Woolley <address@hidden> told me, that...

Acknowledged, but I believe that for the browser to serve its purpose best, it
should represent the structure as logically and comprehensibly as possible. And
I think that increasing the indentation level for nested blockquotes is a place
for improvement here ;-).

Concluded, I'd take the questions rather as a doubt about quality of lynx'
visual presentation of the structure than anything else. And such a question
should be perfectly valid for you as well ;-).

Because People Are Stupid(tm).  Because it's cheaper to put "ACL support: yes"
in the feature list under "Security" than to make sure than userland can cope
with anything more complex than  "Me Og.  Og see directory.  Directory Og's.
Nobody change it".  C.f. snake oil, P.T.Barnum and esp. LSM users
