I do have an opinion about all of this, but that would firmly cross the 'no politics' boundary :)

Gentlemen, PLEASE calm down. True, I'd started this thread with a rather innocent question but I'd never anticipated such an ending :-) Just shake hands, will you?

It made me happy I've already donated money to Wikipedia.
