This vote is extremely valuable?  how does a bunch of random people that
have probably never posted before, then saying one word make grub or lilo
better? If anything the choice should be made on educational value, not
whether one or the other is better or whether more people use one.

The fact that my mailer can filter isnt the point.  I shouldnt be getting
these kinds of posts through lfs-dev, the mailing list for linux from
scratch development _discussion_ in the first place.
