Ok, but 'text-processing-based-on-pseudo-character-groups-on-a-non-filebased-object jokes' wouldn't have been quite so snappy. I know in *nix, 'everything is a file', but even 1sf (troll)? Surely not... :-)

You can delete files when you no longer feel the need for them ;)

Actually, you are all in violation of my pending patent on "a mark that seperate's or sub'stitute's for a letter (or letter's) in a ca'se of contractive abbreviation, or a plural noun in the greengrocers style".
I wa's thinking of calling it "the apo'stroph'e"
You will be hearing from my lawyer's a's soon a's the patent's are granted.
My attorney a's'sure's me that thi's will go through, he u'sed to work for Micro'soft, so I think that I can trus't him.
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!

Good, that means when youve got them patented then everyone will stop using them for fear of litigation, theyre completely superfluous and a waste of ink/chalk/bytes.
