Right. The README of the package says this:
The potentially offensive fortunes are installed by default on FreeBSD
systems. If you're absolutely, *positively*,
without-a-shadow-of-a-doubt sure that your user community goes
berzerk/sues your pants off/drops dead upon reading one of them, edit
the Makefile in the subdirectory datfiles, and do "make all install".
So, we do undoubtedly have the default version and I am undoubtedly
getting more prudish about this type of thing.
Maybe we need a vote. I would really like to know how people feel about
this. We haven't had a vote in a long time so:
How do you feel about the off-color content in the cygwin fortune files?
[ ] Offended. Think about the children!
[ ] Not offended. Stop bothering me with your Puritanical values.
[ ] Don't care. Can we go back to talking about how negative this list is now?
