Seems you already have, since you agreed with Michael Schwingen's
description of the FHS philosophy, in another post.

Therefore, it seems clear that it has a become a question of who talks.

If _I_ do the talking, everyone says it's gibberish and pure nonsense.
If Rincewind (or someone else _you_ trust) talks, then it's a god spell.
