I wish I could go back and remove large portions of my Debian-User
posts during the init wars.

Understand, with the information I had then, I'd probably write the
same things today: My personality hasn't changed. But with the
technical knowledge now in my possession, I cringe at what I wrote. 

And of course, I was in good company: *Lots* of people were getting
down and dirty during the Debian init wars.
