I think he's done a fair job as the head of the w3. Why do you think he should die?
I think we should take this opportunity to develop a policy for dealing with death threats (or other threats of violence) that appear on MeatballWiki. ;-) -- anon.
At least I didn't write this one. -- SunirShah
I wrote the original line. I was an internet user in 1992 (actually, in 1988, but the change started in 1992) when more people started coming on to this neat thing. It first started with AOL but the Web made it explosive, and the more people started coming, the more they started using all the bandwidth we were already using, the more they started posting before lurking in our favorite newsgroups and mailing lists (some were more or less assigned to ruin mailing lists by instructors in "learn about the Internet" courses. Maricopa Community College is forever in my scat-list over that one).
Now, for the last four years, I have gained my paycheck working on the bitmines that TimBernersLee created. I learned perl by writing CGI stuff with it. I know HTTP better than any other networking protocol and I know that TimBernersLee doesn't know how to spell "Referrer". I have a number of people and things who I have claimed should die: Netscape, as mentioned here; Don Henley, following Mojo Nixon's editorial song on the subject; Jeff Lynne, for what he did to Tom Petty, and for the existence of ELO. I know others who have their own little lists, and it is meant to be funny. I have great respect and admiration for Tim, but I hold him responsible for TheSeptemberThatNeverEnded. --DaveJacoby
