For all its behind-the-curtain social pathologies, sickypedia's still pretty darn useful for a poor layman trying to get their head round PPPoE and Dynamic Host Conflagration Protestcull and suchlike.

A planet full of beings who seriously believe they aren't responsible for their own actions is a planet that needs warning beacons round it.
