Description of problem:
the fortune-mod man page (man fortune) makes refrence to offensive fortunes that
red har is trying to kill :(

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man fortune

Actual Results:  
       Note: these are the defaults as defined at compile time.

              Directory for innoffensive fortunes.
              Directory for offensive fortunes.

       If  a  particular set of fortunes is particularly unwanted, there is an
       easy solution: delete the associated .dat file.  This leaves  the  data
       intact,  should  the  file later be wanted, but since fortune no longer
       finds the pointers file, it ignores the text file.

is present in the man page

Expected Results:  no refrence to offensive fortunes should be made

Oh by the way, I think bug 54713 might be relevant but I'm not sure.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-09-04 02:46:12 EDT
This trivial change can wait for our next development cycle as
it isn't critical.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-11 22:03:39 EST
fortune-mode has been removed completely from Red Hat Linux.
