I have forked Richard Stallman.

My version has no beard and has the rudeness removed. I've also uninstalled the GNU/ autocorrect module.

I decided to rename him Phil, first because I wouldn't want to infringe on any copyright, and secondly because he's no longer a "Dick" (which everyone knows is short for Richard, of course). Laughing

Mental note: refer to Towy as "Richard" in the magazine for epic lulz.

It's a lot more friendly to fork someone than to knife them.

Don't keep us in suspense, heiowge! Now you've stuck a fork in RMS, is he done or not?

Unfortunately not. He keeps spitting venom at me. I think he needs more time to mature. Laughing
