This is just a general comment and summary of recent events on the users

Not only have we had *enormous* threads about Windows vs, Linux, we now
have threads about topics that have _absolutely no relevance_  to computing
at all.

I doubt that many subscribers object to occasional off-topic jokes, or even
the occasional flamewar, but things are drifting rather seriously -
perhaps too many people are still on holidays?

At the risk of being labelled a "vigilante" ;-)  i suggest we all could


Perhaps visiting


wouldn't be a bad move either....

Feel free to join the sounder list :


to post whatever you please, (within the Code of Conduct, I would hope.)
And you may flame me unmercifully there, if that's your style ;-)

This isn't posted as a puritanical finger pointing exercise - I enjoy
off-topic and controversial posting - but the users list isn't the place
for it, and we should perhaps be considering the effect such things have on
subscribers who are expecting helpful and informative posts about _Ubuntu_
on a " Ubuntu Help and User Discussions" list.
