So you basically admit that people are "upset" about an imaginary threat that doesn't currently exist, and is unlikely to ever exist?

I knew you were stupid, but I didn't know you were that stupid. Guantanamo Bay is an American concentration camp for abducted muslims and most of them were released after they finally had access to a lawyer after many years of being imprisoned for nothing. The only two differences to Auschwitz are
1) you don't gas the prisoners yet, just torture them.
2) it is on Cuban soil, not in Poland.

Sweden is a part of Europe, but Sweden is not the whole Europe, that was the point.
In Germany, they are indeed called "bio", not "ecological". Czech also call it "bio" and if I remember correctly, so do the French. Sweden is probably a minority in the matter.

As much as I dislike what Poettering does, many things with Unix and Linux are built the way they are because either it was something supposed to be a temporary hack but stayed this way by the sheer force of inertia or because it made sense decades ago, doesn't make sense anymore, but is considered a holy cow because "we've always done it this way".

We don't really understand it, so we'll give it to the programmers.
