linux answers


I think the mods should close a thread whenever somebody answers a question because this is LinuxQuestions.org, not LinuxAnswers. It should be questions only.

Sometimes, answers provided are not correct, are not complete, are not what was being looked for, or for other unknown reasons require that the thread not be closed. If the member who starts the thread does not express satisfaction, how can a moderator know when close a thread?

Cheers, Lou

I think you've confused a genuine suggestion with poor quality joke.

Moderators, close this thread! It is not a question. By its own lights icecubeflower thinks you should close it

[CONTEMPLATIVE] Or is the OP a subtle joke? [/CONTEMPLATIVE]

The OP is a statement. Unless Jeremy renames the forums to LinuxStatements.org I shall have to close this thread and remove the internet from icecubeflower for infringing the EULA of LQ.

I see 9 posts and only 45 questions. Who thinks that the appropriate response to this is to drop a panty bomb and remove everyone's internet?

(sarcastic uhuhuhuhuhuh.) That is the stupidest thing I have heard in six days. The one six days ago was a wrestling deathmatch between world leaders instead of wars.

I'd like to know how a panty bomb works.
What about a pansy bomb?
