Unhappy Why Forum Participation


Why do I have to participate in the Forum before I can use this site for bookmarking? Forcing me to do something I am not interestd in.

The only way this forum works is when people share their expertise and help each other. Linux is a community.

Let me see if I have this straight: You want to use a feature of this forum, but you don't want to contribute or participate. Is that how things work in your home? In your job or school?

Nothing is stopping you from bookmarking the page using your browser but how can you expect to partake in a free service, such as the post notification, if you're not a member.

Stop whining, it freaking free!

Do you know the definition of a Forum? If so then why do you feel someone is forcing you? You joined and now you want to bookmark but not participate. Bookmark all you want! No one one is forcing you to do anything this is a moderated forum but very open.

Seems unlikely that OP will be back.

Equally unlikely that anyone's life will be improved by this thread.
