Today after reading the article on Emperor Norton a parallel with SF/HN, Emperor Norton and Terry Davis struck me.
More and more HN'ers are re-posting his writings and even if they upset some I suspect that we could survive if we let Terry post as a regular account. Sometimes he has good points to make and he's an interesting fellow, and more of a genuine hacker than many here can lay claim to. All those who wrote an operating system from scratch please raise your hand... He's not always equally easy to follow, sometimes downright offensive but it's all just bits. Since I browse with 'showdead' on it makes little difference to me but I suspect it will make a huge difference for Terry, as far as I can see he means absolutely no harm.
So I propose we re-instate TempleOS as a full member, if that has popular support and dang agrees.
I recognize HN is not a democracy and that the 'management' has every right to ignore this petition if the answer is positive.
If you vote in the poll remember that is not the same as voting for the poll.
