In particular, that puts one in the silly position of saying that
ftp://www.unicode.org/Public/README.TXT is not an information
resource at all, whereas http://www.unicode.org/Public/README.TXT
is an information resource.

In might the Feanorians / that swore the unforgotten oath
brought war into Arvernien / with burning and with broken troth.
and Elwing from her fastness dim / then cast her in the waters wide,
but like a mew was swiftly borne, / uplifted o'er the roaring tide.
