Is your messagebus user/group lokal or via LDAP?

Could you send me the output of
grep messagebus /etc/passwd
grep messagebus /etc/group

What groups does the system dbus-daemon have? You can get this with:

egrep 'Uid|Gid|Group' /proc/$(cat /var/run/dbus/pid)/status

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
