Someone with the below userID of "iman" has sent four emails in rapid 
succession as replies to K12LTSP messages, all of them saying something 



or something very similar.  I checked out the Web site, and while it 
does appear to be a pro-Linux site, it's in some language I've never 
seen, definitely not English or anything even resembling it.

Mr/Ms "Iman", would you care to explain?
