That is actually from August 2007 (typo in the fortunes package).

If you do

> RSiteSearch('Thou Shalt Not Even Think Graph Spreadsheet')

Basically, Ted was trying to shorten my soapbox without knocking me off of it after I replied to someone who wanted to add the values to a barchart like a particular spreadsheet.
