Comment: Re: RFC 3514 (Score 3, Funny) 319

by MerBat (#5638177) Attached to: Evil Bit Added to TCP/IP Packets
As a member of the IETF*, I argued vociferously for a minimum of 3 bits (two to encode [good evil neutral], the third to encode [lawful chaotic]); but after much argument over the space limitations, and confusion over how to interpret the "extra" bit pattern, I was finally shouted down with cries of "you're either with us, or against us!" * Not.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.

Working...
