hacking

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.

rating accuracy

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.
