EDIT: To put the somewhat sour tone of this particular FAQ into context, I get this particular requestion a lot, in tones ranging from the nagging “not-really-asking” repetition to the outright demanding.
I apologize to anyone who genuinely was asking the question in good faith, the first time, in blissful ignorance. To everyone else, I remind you of a certain saying concerning George R. R. Martin.
