Thumbs down I find it highly totalitarian to lock my thread because of using WORDS. eg. 1984 BS


Excuse me for being fed up with spending hours fixing problems and being inconvenienced due to others' stupidity and for voicing opposition to that in a constructive manner in the hopes of opening up discourse and breaking the silence surrounding a fraction of what is wrong with Linux and open source in general (which is not really open when the people are generally close-minded pricks).

For this I was attacked, first by the usual horde of fan boys who can't actually read or process what I say so simply spew some trite nonsense which anyone with an IQ of 80 or higher should automatically disregard, but then my words were edited (censored) and my thread was locked, and not for any legitimate technical reason but for the simple act of using words, "swearing". SWEARING???

This is the year 2013, get over it! Evolve already!

I have nothing further to say and do not wish to debate (since I am right there is nothing to debate) so I will not be responding, but I felt it necessary to set the record straight in light of what happened.

(and yes I know someone will think they are real brilliant by pointing out it is a private site which is totally irrelevant.)

Linuxquestions.org is known for its helpful members, constructive discussion and its friendly attitude.
We'd like to keep it that way, which means you must do your part.
Effectively that means remaining respectful and friendly at all times.

Being frustrated is one thing but expressing your frustration (and it's not the first time you decided to rant about things) can be done without phrasing things the derogatory way or pointing to others (it's always others).

Should you, or any other LQ member, have a problem with any responses or moderation then you are invited to open up comms with any moderator.
Please do not create more threads or posts about this topic or in the way you vented your frustration.

Oh it was straight before. It didn't need setting.

To cut a long story short, it would seem that you need to learn how to read documentation.

A good place to start is here: http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm

Every board has rules that members can, and are expected to, read. If I remember correctly, profanity is against this board's rules. A good rule of thumb is to not join an organisation if one does not like their rules. Or am I using too much common sense?

Evolve into what? Uncultured, profanity-spewing-cretins? No thanks.

On a side note.
It never ceases to amaze me how a few people who have problems angrily curse everyone else as stupid, because those other people do not have the same problems, and have tantrums about the stupid OSes that work fine for everyone else. These boards can be so entertaining.

WORDS are all we have on the forums; use them responsibly.

Quon: It is obvious from your many posts that you do not like Linux so do yourself a favour and go here:
http://www.apple.com/
Buy a product and devote your energy to something other than pointless rants on a Linux forum.
