Why can't I follow simple rules?!?


Interested in a walkthru to help you through a Gentoo Linux 2006 installation (with KDE Gnome and Xfce)? Then click here:


There is a page on installing Windows on a spare partition of your harddrive.

There is also instructions on HOWTO access and write to Windows XP/2000 (formatted with the NTFS) from Linux.

Access to Windows by Captive-FUSE and NTFS-FUSE are compared.

There is also code for JAVASCRIPT MOVIES (and a few to watch).

Also has a section on how to REMIX YOUR 14 Debian CDs as 2 DVDs.

So what evil is causing LinuxQuestions to censor these posts?

What do you mean 'censor'? Did you get an error message when you tried to post the link? If so, it's probably because you can't include bare URLs in your first 5 posts (to stop spammers).

Maybe because every couple of months you come around posting the same thing and try to spark some sort of conspiracy theory on why you get banned from every forum/news outlet on the entire internet. LinuxQuestions hasn't even CENSORED you yet, but you feel the need begin your thread as if we have placed the tape over your mouth.

There is absolutely NO reason to censor How-TO's on installing a linux OS, obviously. So good luck getting banned this time around under a new username. I think fewer and fewer people buy into your garbage, especially when you post right on your website about how you've been banned from x and X, and so on.

Please, save your finger tips and post elsewhere or preferably not at all if this is all you have to say.

One of his threads was locked by one of the mods and he has decided to post the same thing again.

The original (huge) batch of these was closed because of one simple reason: if you want to post up a how to, that's fine, it's why we have the Tutorials section after all. Simply posting a link (and using a big red font as well) is frowned upon - if the link goes down, we look like fools.

Also, looking at post#1, it reads like spam.

Rest assured, he is now banned, as will the next user he creates, and the one after that, and so on.
