The all-powerful moderators/heroes of some internet discussion boards...

Posted 01-15-2015 at 12:32 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just a rant/laugh... I just stumbled on a thread on a non-anglophone Ubuntu forum... the translated thread subjetc was "WHAT'S THE BEST NOTEBOOK BRAND FOR LINUX", in all-caps, and without a question mark.

A moderator warned about the all-caps title, asking the OP to fix it... he didn't... the thread continued for a while... until after 14 messages the thread was locked, because the thread subject wasn't fixed.

Now OpenBSD has applied W^X to the kernel (amd64 thus far) as well, along with ASLR and a few other improvements.
