1) Google searches from the thread you mentioned return nothing racist on ubuntuforums.
2) Why is that important to you? You've joined to get help, right? You will get help. So what is the problem?
3) In my opinion, your thread was locked down because your took information from untrusted source, whose goal could have been discrediting ubuntuforums.org or simply trolling. Your question was answered, and thread was locked down, because there were nothing else to discuss.

As someone said, "internet is a big wall where anyone can write anything.". "Anything" includes "any kind of garbage, lies or misinformation". In your case name of website you mentioned clearly indicates that all linux-related information there cannot be trusted. So, do yourself your favor, when reading anything on the internet, use your brain, check all information, compare it with info from other sources, and think if this can be trusted or not.

The site you linked ("linsux") looks suspect. Last I checked, Ubuntuforums was just fine....

It has only one hundred of registred users, and I"ve seen better/larger sites running from home machine using dyndns. The resource is pitiful, and it looks like it was created on july 2008. I have no idea how this could possibly make it into google search results - basically it is local "forum" run by one bored person, I've seen at least dozen of those within my ISP's IP ranges.

No offense, but I wouldn't be surprised if original poster was actually promoting website in this way. Of course, there is only 50% probability of that, and I might be wrong about it.

If you do have an issue with any post at UbuntuForums you need to flag it to their moderators. There is nothing we can do and there is little value in discussing it here. The forums there provide a very valuable service and the best way to help them improve is to flag up issues. I am closing this thread because there is nothing we can do here.
