Really well put Michael.  I believe you speak for many unspoken people 
as well.

This is very true.  I know several people that know very little about 
computers that use, and love, Ubuntu and I must admit.  I would never 
suggest them to write to this list the way it is.

Not only the ubuntu-users but also the Ubuntu Canada email list ubuntu-ca.

I must also admit I have seen this disdain.  I myself was flamed a few 
years ago when I was a newbie.  Due to this flame on the ubuntu-users 
list I was scared to write to the list and never did for about a year. 
So, I have also seen this problem since I joined in later 2005.

Your friend,

Sent to you from a Linux computer using Ubuntu Version 9.10
