I guess the problem is still the same as Peter and Colin were trying to 
point out...the signal to noise ratio is way too low. Which is 
interfering with launchpad's purpose and which is why #ubuntu and 
ubuntu-users are not places where the developers want to hang out with 
their clients.

Anyway, I got to add my noise and hopefully I can do signals later when 
things settle down over here...if ever...

You don't...why should new system administrators be shoved into 
ubuntu-users or ubuntu?

It is not as if ubuntu is not used on servers at all.
