Come on Gary, that's a common example, nothing to worry about.  Showing
these symbols has been forbidden in Germany at one point 50 years ago.
Of course that doesn't keep the die-hards from celebrating the history
but it was an interesting experiment.

I don't see what that has to do with fortune except that you are apparently
trying to create more examples until you find something which might offend
somebody on the list.  Then this person has to come over it and move forward.
That's it.  Can we stop discussing now(*) and move forward?  Thanks.


(*) Otherwise *please* move this discussion to cygwin-talk now.  I've
    set the reply-to accordingly.
