They might have to redirect this guy's output to /dev/troll.

From the ticket:

I declare this a bug for two reasons:

  1. The output is boring.
  2. The terminal has more than 2 lines!!! It's an unefficient use of my screenspace.

I believe the reason for this is that the grep command only searches locally for things I am actually looking for, I kind of expect the results I get from my codebase and as such it removes any sense of mystery or something new and exciting to spice up my dull geek existence. That's boring, grep -R should also search amazon, so I get more exciting results...

"The output is boring."

I love that.
