I missed this the first go-round. My interpretation of Andy's
observation is that something cognitive about how certain pages read
*might* accidentally point new users toward.. unstable and/or testing?

​I am intrigued here.....  I actually upgraded to sid myself to try to install these new kernels.
Maybe there is some kind of subtle subliminal force drawing me to do this here that I was not aware of.

Who knows.

This could turn out to be more interesting than the discussion about the kernel installations themselves.
