Karl - I've been weary of your pointless blogging since you showed up
on the Fedora list.

If you have a question about Ubuntu, please ask the list.  If you just
want to ramble, you *really* should be respectful enough to do so
elsewhere.  This is a mailing list with thousands(?) of users, created
and maintained for a specific purpose - it's not your personal chat
room or web log.

Of course, since you have never taken friendly (or not-so-friendly)
advice before, I don't think you're going to stop - so could you at
least try to be *civil*?    Steve has a valid point - you often post
things here that have *nothing* do do with Ubuntu.
