By "technical discussion", people here generally do not understand your average rant in the spirit of a bar conversation about the respective merits of cars / football clubs / girls / Linux distributions.

This leaves you with three things to do.

1) Ask yourself what it is you want to do with your computer.

2) Read the documentation.

3) After (1) and (2) ask precise questions.

Thank you for getting the message.
My first intention to join LQ was to Learn. Not make friends, nothing else.

But if instead of learning I have ended up accumulating a wealth of FUD and false information. That defeats the purpose of LQ being a reliable place to LEARN.

Who can I thank that to? I can definitely thank people like yourself that have wrote a couple of books in french and feel they are entitled praise and respect even though much of what comes out their finger tips is false or FUD. Oh, don't worry about it, its true he wrote a book on Ubuntu he knows everything. If you do know something at least show it. Don't write false comments in here that prove your ignorance on technical terms. Be useful to me and others with their questions in here. Give them clear correct and concise responses without adding all that French sarcasm, and stale jokes that lack humor.

What would I do if I owned this Forum to make it better?
People that do not have the brain power to debate logical discussions that lead to enlightenment and knowledge should be the ones getting warnings.

There should be warnings for anybody that states Wrong and False Comments.

This will encourage others not to spread FUD and false information and lies.

Imagine how many new people will sign up to the forums.

Hey you heard about LQ? Na what is it?

Oh man its soo cool! They actually have a forum that endorses Real Knowledge.

Whoever spreads lies, FUD and inaccurate information gets banned.

Wow! Thats so cool. I wana sign up too. I want to learn.

But no, instead of that we have a forum that embraces Cultism, FUD, False Info.

Thats why I can not say I learned too much valuable stuff from most of my time spent in here. From being here, once my most favorite distro: Slackware...

has been replaced by CentOS. Why? Because its not a cult of mass disinfo and lies.
Yes, thats right it was not Patricks fault that pushed me away from Slackware.

I blame the Community of Slackware Zealots that spread FUD and False information.

I don't deal with that in CentOS.

FUD in CentOS forums simply gets ignored. Here its like people live off of FUD!

My suggestions before leaving this forum?

Make FUD, False Information, Lies... etc. Illegal.

This will make this forum much much better and weed out all the parasites like Kiki Novak and others that are quick to type away shit that is totally wrong and get away with it.

Disinformation is the BIGGEST CRIME and should not go unpunished.

Good bye and Good Riddance to me!
Let me know if the LQ rules change.

Slackware has always been slackware. A distro designed for Geeks like me and others. Simplified, minimalist and Console based.

The population of the number of Geeks have not changed. As a matter of fact have increased over time due to improvements in computer science.

Meanwhile, the number of Geeks that switched distros have increased.

In 1998 when I was using Slackware. Slackware was the number 1 Distro for Geeks. It was the S$%^%^! You were really considered l33t when you used it.

Now 2012. Where did all the geeks go? Problems should not be ignored...

I just came from a class for Scheme last night and said I was using Slackware and all the geeks started laughing. You are still using Slackware?

I don't find this funny. I find it sad. I like Slackware... But people like you hold it down.

Closure notice

As the OP succinctly predicted in post #9 (yes, nine):

the question was answered authoritatively so this thread is marked "solved". After several attempts at sidetracking, 500+ replies and 30K views later I judge this thread best remains closed. I ask everybody who partook in this discussion and other recently closed long-lived threads intensively to please examine their own posting behaviour and compare that with how they would have liked to be treated were they on the receiving end themselves, TIA.

In closing I would like to commend elvis4526 for what he achieved but more than that for reminding us what it should be all about:
less talk, more action.
