  The people that support Ubuntu do so in multitudes of ways. And in doing so 
I know that I am also addressing the entirety of the open source effort that  
runs on many operating systems.  The innovators that contribute of themselves 
certainly in the thousands of ways that is essential to build a fine system 
is truly a major social phenomenon. It is so easy for someone that is doing 
their " thing " to loose sight that " their " contribution is just a tiny 
part of a most complex greater construction. Where would Ubuntu be without 
Debian? Without GNU? Without Linux? etcetera, etcetera! 
  So what is it that I am looking at in this flame? Possibly just ignorance. 
Possibly some poor soul that is caught in the midst of this economic chaos 
that is swallowing many during these days. Possibly agents from MS land sent 
to bring the seeds of hate, and gross stupidity.
  Having been specifically named, I wish to state: My purpose for being here 
is to learn, share, assist in continuing to build Ubuntu and the open source 
effort. I do not endorse the behavior of Cory K. nor Eddie Armstrong.

I hope this helps.
