"No, a firewall is an application"
Please learn what the hell you are talking about. I accept your apology.
"We are also blocking the ports at a local level using hosts.allow and hosts.deny. You don't NEED to use a firewall process to block things."
A firewall isn't a process, and you misinformed us. You originally claimed you don't have a firewall, but you just said you do have a firewall, you just don't know that you have a firewall. That being said, Have a nice day though!
" If I occasionally drink alcohol, then yes, I'm at risk of becoming an alcoholic."
Again, you have no idea what you are talking about. Your belief that you "become" an addict based an a use pattern is what makes it blairingly obvious that you have no idea what you are talking about. Until you have a drink of you have no idea if you are one on not. Once you do, if you are an addict (or in your words, an "alcoholic"), then you will drink differently from other people immediately. It affects an addict differently than a non addict.
"I claimed that responsibility decides whether you resist the temptation to experiment with drugs or not. "
Yes, and I pointed out the fact that you are an idiot who seems to think he is one of the few responsible people on the planet.
"But I would prefer if you keep the insults to yourself. Unless that is your addiction."
Yes! You nailed it on the head (pretty good for an idiot, actually.) I wasn't an inslult addict, but then I insulted you just one too many times, and now I'm an insult addict! Moron.
"You know, the code that is already open and scannable by a web crawler"
Have you ever tried to write a Webcrawler that will crawl the internet and differentiate code from everything else there, determine if it is FOSS, decide if it is still in active development or interesting, etc.? Clearly not. You might think you can easily write an AI Webcrawler, but I assure you that you cannot do it at all.

Congratulations on finally having something to add in a Slashdot thread!
"I have a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering."
You should demand a refund.
