I'm sorry but if you think that Peter Maddison's reply to me was 
acceptable then I dont see the point in saying anything, and you shot me 
down yourself. Which is why I answered the way I did.

I dont see any posts on here that warn people that Linux isnt completely 
safe and whenever its bought up, people are treated like they are idiots 
and its always those people that are knowledgeable about Linux.....the 
rest of us are treated like I have been now.

An its not just this thread its thread after thread that people are 
shouted down in, by the same people every time.
