With these FAQs, I try to be product neutral and just give facts, or when facts are not available, quote "common logic". These FAQs are by no means all encompassing. They are meant to fill in 80% of the gaps, shorten your personal research time, and narrow your future search parameters. As information changes, I update these from time to time as well. I strive for accuracy, so if you see an error, please let me know. I do not "subscribe" to any of these FAQs, so if you have a correction, please make it in the thread and I will research and update when I have time.

I think Scotty has a point about Uncle Sam. Plus the words "unabomber" and "manifesto" used in conjunction like that probably attract some unwanted attention I would think.

I tried to contact North Uraslia to put this up with the other FAQs but he doesn't accept PMs and I can't report the thread to a mod because someone else already did it...
