Not sure what you are talking about here. So, I will not comment on

Also, though I can agree that I'm overly harsh with my words (as I so
often am), I would still rather focus on the issue at hand. Which is
about Google Hangouts.

So, let me say this one last thing about the discussion whether we
should or should not use Google Hangouts.

1. Ubuntu Studio does not have a policy for/against Google services.
Historically we have used them plenty. So, historically it is something
we use. This means, though it is not in writing we actually do have a
policy for using Google services.
2. It is your personal opinion that we should not use Google Hangouts.
If you prefer not to use them, start a discussion about it, and see who
is for/against. Since, in fact, it is no one who chooses that but the
3. If the community prefers to use Google Hangouts, it would be highly
counterproductive if you did not, particularly if you are a involved in
the work being discussed. And, you already knew coming to Ubuntu Studio
that we are not a political movement against non-free services (where
Google Hangouts can hardly be deemed as a threat against free and open
communication, rather the opposite). So, logic dictates that you should
use the services if the community wishes it.

Jimmy knew this, out of experience. So, naturally, he would suggest
using something like Google Hangouts for live communication.
