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

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.
