the thing about open source communities is that they are not
restricted or separated by technology -- they are essentially
borderless. i will not disregard objectionable behavior which can
affect the health of the kubuntu community or its members on a
highly-visible and highly-used medium like facebook or twitter.
kubuntu is a community project and is not limited to the monetary
boundaries of what canonical chooses to officially support. this
doesn't mean you can't object against technical decisions as long as
it is done in a constructive and useful way (rants and other types of
bashing do not usually count as constructive by most people). there is
also no excuse for inappropriate attacks against persons in the
community on *any* medium. if you feel that you cannot restrain
yourself from such personal attacks then perhaps reapplying for
membership is not for you.
