Personally, I thought that them doing this was a sign of a more innocent time,
where we didn't have to worry about every single word that came out of our

Seriously guy, your type is one of the primary reasons why the internet is
getting - its not quite there yet, but getting - to be *no fun*.
It was built on freedom and free-thinking, and the very fact that this
conversation is taking place is a testimony to how bitter it has become.
If you don't want to install 'fortune', don't. A flag -o plus ROT13
encryption on the rest of the content *should* be fine. Either that or a
separate package called fortune-xxx ( having no objections to the content,
I prefer fortune-risque myself). What's your problem with that?
