Your mail seems more tailored to people wanting support. My comments are 
not relating to support "my display doesn't work" but "Ubuntu is 
rubbish, it should change" style comments.

If you can't make it work, by all means try various methods to get 
support. If you don't _like_ Ubuntu then it's entirely within your 
rights to use a different distro, and if we can't accommodate your 
requirements we are perfectly within our rights to say "try another distro".

If I recall last time we discussed this we recommended trying 
http://askubuntu.com/ to get some support. How did that work out?
