Just a rant!


I was a member of some other linux forum and I asked a question about which distro's came with the 2.6 kernel and then they got all mad and told me to use google.com and they closed 3 of my threads and then banned me. I told them I did search but I only found info on 3 out of the 6 distro's I wanted info on. I get all these PM's saying not to attack other members and not to make any more threads asking stupid questions and all this BS. I go to sign into today and I am banned for telling other people to use google.com. wtf is wrong with them? I was a member for almost 10 months and they just boot me out since I am not a linux guru. mofo's I am just mad as hell. I am just gonna browse this forum now and ask my questions here since you guys accually answer them here and don't ban me for asking me stupid questions.

This is a good forum and I plan for it to be my new linux home. I would mention the name, but thats adverstining and I want that sight to go down since the only answer they can give you is google.com



Thanks for all you people here who accually take time to answer questions!

I'll give you a 6/10 on the rant scale for that one. Don't feel bad though, I won't give anyone 7/10 or better unless Windows or AOL is mentioned at least once.

lol I am not trying to get scored. I am just pissed because I asked a question, thread got closed, made another thread with the same questions, thread got closed, made even another one, thread got closed accually after getting the answer I was looking for. Got a PM saying not to attack other users, I asked if he was joking. He sent back give me attitude 1 more time and your banned. I go and post in 3-6 threads saying use google.com and am banned today.


IT BS that forum and I hate it with a passion.

Hi.

Here's an answer to your original question, if you're still looking for it:
Slackware 10 - 2.4.26 or 2.6.7 (both included)
Fedora Core 2 - 2.6.5 (updated to 2.6.6 via YUM)
Mandrake 10.0 2.4.25 or 2.6.3 (both included)
Debian (testing) 2.6.6 (Woody is still on 2.4 as far as I can remember)
Gentoo 2004.1 2.6.x
SuSE 9.1 2.6.x
I think RedHat Enterprise is still on 2.4

Erm, I googled for it(!)

Seriously, though, I had to do a bit of digging around the websites of the distros to find out. I was looking for this stuff myself a few weeks ago.

Hello, cereal83.

So JL bans for stupid reasons all the time? or are you trying to imply something else? Because yes is was JL aka don't ask us questions who banned me.

I also don't get the firts link, it's only a link to a search page in the worst linux forum in the world!

And we really, really do not want threads which slag off other forums. JL have their own rules which are, admittedly, harder than our own. But by signing up to them you agreed to abide by them.

This thread has been reported.

It's just a rant. Also just because you sign up somewhere, doesn't mean you agree to their rules. Yes legally clicking "I accept" does make you say you agree but I never read it and I never agree.

But anyways. I was just ranting that I got banned for a very stupid reason. Why should this thread me reported for me telling you people why I was banned?

Take it easy cereal83.

The moderators are called that for a reason. LinuxQuestions can be held responsible for the content of their site in some circumstances (I seem to recall Slashdot having to pull some posts which infringed on Microsoft's copyright a while back), so it's not a good idea to have possibly slanderous or abusive content in the forums. I'm not saying that's what has happened, but things can get out of hand quickly.

Put it down to experience and move on - pressing the issue won't get you anywhere.

Dave

P.S.If you don't agree to abide by the rules of a forum, don't click 'I agree'. You wouldn't sign a contract if you didn't agree to its terms (or hadn't read it), would you? Depending on the circumstances (as ever), you *can* be held legally liable for your actions if you have indicated that you agree to the terms of use.
