Isn't this the same thread as http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...&threadid=4139 ?? You should avoid cross posting where possible.

There's nothing to stop you cross posting but you'll end up getting different people giving the same answers in different threads, so you'll waste your time reading the same thing twice, and one person will waste their time giving the same answer. You'll also find that people get ideas from other's responses, if they only view a single thread (when its crossed) they'll see only some of the responses so you might lose out on possible solutions.

cheers

Aaah!
Yes, your answer seems a bit lame too.

I am asking about disk quotas I don't want to know anything about your opinion. I read the man and I have installed the quota package.
If you can help, or you want help me I will be pleased.
Any comments out off topic makes me waste my time. (and of course, your time)

Thumbs up

Ok, you are right, well I did cross posting because is urgent for me, so I thought cross posting was a good idea. In the future I will think twice before make cross posting ;-)
