Re: fortune maintainer wanted and question for Corinna (was Re: Obscene content in cygwin file.)

Yes and no, Corinna. Merely having them on the harddrive in a company computer could be construed as "creating a hostile work environment" -- leading to liability issues for the company and employment "issues" for the unsuspecting cygwin user.

Any company firing me for "creating a hostile work environment" for such a matter as this is, in my book, not a company I wish to work for. YMMV.

I'm definitely going to have to uninstall the fortune package at work -- probably even if the xxx content is "encrypted". My employer is lenient enough when it comes to "rogue" cygwin installations (e.g. not installed by the IT guys) but they'll get downright annoyed if employees create a liability problem for them by installing something that might offend another employee (e.g "create a hostile work environment")

What the hell is some other employee doing snooping around your computer to view these files?!? To me *that's* a hostile work environment created by the snooping employee!
Earth First! We'll stripmine the other planets later.
