Yes, but this was not quoted from the Jargon File.JamesBWatson (talk) 11:36, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
To me, this looks exacly like this entry from the Jargon File, which is listed in the article as being from the Jargon File, and sourced as being from Jargon File. If my faulty memory is to be trusted, this is the same text that has been in the Jargon File since I first saw it circa 3.x. Am I missing something crucial here? --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 18:52, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
...and one additional thought: I'm not reverting - instead of just copying the material, I think it'd be better if someone would create an original text example. All I'm saying is having an "example" section with just a link to an external resource is a little bit silly. --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 19:10, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
I certainly agree that it would be better to have an original example which could be quoted. Maybe sometime I'll even produce one, but don't hold your breath. Meanwhile I think the link is better than nothing. JamesBWatson (talk) 11:36, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
