Where in any charter either Ubuntu CC, or Kubuntu CC does it state
what "oppinions" I may state?
They were opinions, and nothing more.  Some over the top, yes, but
most were satire.  Mrs. Councilwoman, would you please provide
documentation pertaining to Ubuntu on Twiitter/Facebook/ or identica?

You are obviously a smart person,  I am not, I'm just a thinker.  I
think that there will be no mention of twitter of identica or facebook
anywere in any document (check timestamp now)

This brings up another issue.  If the council, or members of the
council were so concerned with the type of posts I was makeing, why
didn't I hear anything about it until I get kicked off?

Ususally, in the REAL world - People are given verbal, writen, final
writen, then termination.

Thanks for skipping to the end with me WITH ZERO FEEDBACK FROM THE
KUBUNTU COUNCIL OR COMMUNITY,  I would have happily changed my style.
But that's water under the bridge now,

The Kubuntu Council has proven is uselessness when it comes to
conterversy - no trying to save the sole - just get rid of them.  I
had somethere over 500 uploads with kubuntu - i'm sure you'll find
someone to replace me
