At the risk of being massively flamed...
IMHO, society is held together by agreements. Whether or not all
participants know this, the basic agreement for creating this group was that
it be for discussing MATLAB. I'm quite sure the OP knew this and chose to
break this agreement.
Perhaps I (or all of us) should use cssm to post appeals to my (our) own
favorite charities in the hopes of doing some good. Do you think that would
lead to a good outcome?
