Flame war anyone?


What is the matter with these forums? I registered as soon as I found this site back in April and have not witnessed 1 flame war.

I have not been able to get my laughs watching two dimwits going at it in a flame war over distro/knowledge level/social skills/hair style/windows v linux/weather/parentage... I am going back to some news groups to get my fix.

Seriously though these forum's are the best resource for linux answers I have come across in the three years I have been playing with linux. This site is my first stop and quite often my the only place I need to go to get the answers I am looking for.

Jeremy, how have you kept this site the friendliest linux q&a place on the net? What's your secret? A big stick? Do you think that 'bad' elements will creep in when it starts to get bigger?

If you notice in the General-Linux forum, I tend to close threads as soon as I see a problem that isn't solving anything for anyone.
This site is great and I am glad there aren't many wars out there. That is something we don't need here.

Talk about Plugging yourself!

Seriously, your right though, the mods here are of excellent quality, aparently the one in the General Forum is the best.....just a rumour I heard going around! (In my head probably)

I agree that we have THE BEST linux community around. Wish I did have a secret. I'd like to think people followed the example set by me, but somehow I doubt it

Thanks!
