Are you now the overlord of posts and decide what is acceptable and what pleases you?

My feelings of windows is the same as dalek, the only difference is he says it in a nicer way whereas I say it in a more spiteful way.

BTW, I don't write malicious code that you accuse me of.

Perhaps you should have used the adverb "respectively" to label the person with the associated crime

Nice? Me? Excuse me for a moment. < dalek laughs till he is about to cough up both lungs and one whole leg >

Now back to bashing winders. That should be a window instead of a wall. Use your imagination.

Correct!

But we do want to carry on with civility thus not communicating in poor fashion or tone. That 'guru' label just means I've been around LQ for a while, nothing more.

Please be specific? No where am I angered with you. I just don't believe you are doing this community any good. Especially in the way you set tones with your post(s). Microsoft is a corporation that provides proprietary software. Most people who use M$ sometimes have to use it, doesn't mean they like it. Employers, hungry families that depend on these people to produce or else someone else will fill their position by replacement. You still haven't provided a valid argument or viewpoint as to why you hate M$. Mimicry or echo of someone Else's dislike? This is not a suitable nor a desirable position.

This is a world community here at LQ. You may have the right to free speech here in the U.S.A. but your continued presentations of immature posts only strengthens arguments against the GNU/Linux community. Grow up! Express your views and opinions in a manner that will clarify positions or points of valid information that will help us to understand that same position. As someone said "Cleverness is not wisdom".

That free speech attitude does show ones position that will not open doors in the world community. Drop It. You agreed to the LQ Rules in order to participate here. Plain and simple wording that states;

That law pertains to the U.S.A. Not a world community! Continued bantering like this only strengthens arguments against your standpoint.

Well, that's it for now...
It's the manner along with content of the posts that show maturity or not. No, we don't expect you to have a polished reply. But I do suggest that you read your reply for understanding and then read it again from someone Else's perspective. I've reread my previous posts to you and really can't see where anger or dictatorial senses were made.

um, some countries dont have freedom of speech. (and this being the world wide interweb means that some other countries have access to this site.)
also freedom of speech only applies to government. private websites can censor the hell out of anything anyone posts (mods remove posts all the time).

What does free speech have to do with being able to publicly bash Microsoft? I thought it only meant you can't publicly say bad things about the government.

Talking bad about the government may be a "bad thing" in some countries but not in the USA. As it has been seen over the past dozen or so years, especially the last two years, people have plenty of bad things to say about the government here. It's not just our current President either. It's the whole bunch that need to be talked about.

Freedom of speech isn't always free tho. If someone says something that is not true, they can say it but they can also be taken to court to pay damages. If for example I said someone was a serial killer and I knew it was not true or couldn't prove it was true, I could be held accountable for that. If that person lost their job and was shunned by the community or some other harm was caused, I would have to pay for the damages of what I said.

So, freedom of speech but responsibility for what is said too.

As for M$, anything goes in my opinion. Talk bad all you want. lol

Nothing! The former poster stated he had the right to 'Free Speech' by the statement: "Everyone is protected by the Freedom of Speech in the United States. Which means we can express our views and opinions about most anything.". LQ is a world community therefore not all have the rights as we do here in the U.S.A.

As for comments against the U.S. government, I do have the right to speak my mind in a civil manner as a citizen. You can present arguments against anything but if not done properly then the result of your action(s) may result in legal actions, no matter the subject.

Life is not so short but there is always time enough for courtesy. -Emerson

I agree it's time to end this already.

Even I haven't posted about this issue for a while because I want it to end.

I take the blame for drawing attention to myself in those last few pages.

I want to stop.

Let's not continue on the matter anymore.
