Well, usually. I still can't resist scanning the craplist every once in a while to make sure it really is all crap.


Interesting, patches that fix security holes are considered crap.
Perhaps it would have been better to say, patches that are not necessary
to my system. These security updates certainly are not crap.


No they are not security updates. Most of them are localization files (for OO 1 for crying out loud) and I agree with Allen that it would be nice to be able to say "No I'm not downloading those files, not now, not ever, never". And whether they are crap or not is all in the eye of the beholder.
