A number of people like them.



A number of people like hard pore cornography too. Cygwin doesn't provide that, at least not in visual form, at least not that I'm aware of.

The question stands:  What is the reason Cygwin should provide this obscene

This is a good question. For reference, this is the warning I got after I selected fortune for installation on SuSE Linux today:

"Together with a lot of funny sayings fortune also contains some sayings which
may not be fully "politically correct". These sayings are nevertheless included
as SuSE does not want to apply any censorship to fortune. Please note that not
all users may appreciate all fortune sayings. Please do not install fortune in
this case."
