Like Maradona's Hand of God in 1986.

Sadly to say, there are religion themed releases of Ubuntu.

This thread ridiculous. Why not what animal most like Linux? Bear, Elephant, or Walrus? Or why not what planet most like Linux? Mars, Jupiter, or Neptune? Random nonsense.

Since the sole explanation offered by the OP for creating a thread like this can be condensed as as "he did it, so I can do it too" I agree its usefulness can be questioned. And leaving such challenges unanswered also does not give off the right signal to the rest of the LQ Community. So I think you and others questioning the validity of such threads is a Good Thing. Warped minds, the TFH crowd, deliberate provocations, malice and hate I understand but why a minor part of the LQ Community fails to see that creating less than useful threads or posts is like soiling their own nest is something I can not understand, especially when done out of sheer boredom. We need all the help we can get to counter that movement and so it is good to see community-based moderation initiatives are still alive and well. But first and foremost LQ members should understand they themselves make or break LQ. I'm trying hard to avoid words like self-moderation, maturity, respect and responsibility but yes, in the end it boils down to that.
