We are now officially in "crunch mode" at Eazel, heading towards the feature-complete milestone. I will probably post a bit less often.
certifying the `rms' account
ncm comments about this. I certified it, even though I am reasonably sure it is not actually Richard M. Stallman. I did it because whether or not the account is real, RMS himself deserves props.
I guess this creates the minor possibility that someone might try to use the account to impersonate RMS and say things he wouldn't say, but that has not happened yet.
I think some rankings are probably inflated. However, this is a natural result of the fact that anyone with a Master rating can singlehandedly make someone else a Master. This means even a few people excercising poor judgement can throw a lot of noise into the system. I try to be very careful not to over-certify people, although I think sometimes I go overboard, and don't give people a Master rating just because I think others might not think they deserve it.
