This seems like a reasonable way to start teaching these things. I'd be
interested in hearing from someone who has good knowledge of how humans
are educated, since my own memories are rather blurry and I'm no longer
being educated in the sense that we're discussing (though I do teach
myself quite a bit, but then maybe we always have to invent morals for
ourselves to adopt them and they never real take hold if they are only
pounded into us).

I'm with you on that one. As I mentioned on IRC a few days ago, I think
that lately a lot of messages have lacked SL4 quality and deserve a good
old fashioned *bzzzzzt*.
