Well this is the only email list I'm on that is so aggressive to

I've *never* seen this sort of aggression or complaints on the evils of
"top posting" elsewhere. I'm now *very* careful not to top post on this
list and it is clearly very important to the 20 or so regulars on this
list who seem to think they represent the Ubuntu users in the UK..

If people do still want to get involved in Ubuntu (highly recommended) I
can certainly confirm that the rest of the community is not like this so
don't be disheartened.

Ubuntu UK isn't actually recognised by the Ubuntu community council
currently so if the forum community wanted to fork they can certainly do
so. Your sheer weight of numbers should ensure you prevail. 

I'm becoming increasingly unimpressed by the regulars here.
