historic reasons; some of the fortune quotes were not seen as
politically correct or even offensive for some users/customers, and
people somehow get really upset by that. (Remember the treads about that
screen saver that made shapes that someone "recognized" as being one of
his body parts; things like this get people really upset and thus the
alternative to not shipping fortune is shipping it but vetting every
single fortune text as seen from several different cultures)
DELETE A FORTUNE!
Don't some of these fortunes just drive you nuts?! Wouldn't you like
to see some of them deleted from the system? You can! Just mail to
"fortune" with the fortune you hate most, and we MIGHT make sure it
