I would like to be on the killfile of some special members ;). Of course
it would make me sad to be on yours, because you are one of the mentioned
5, but if this will happen then I simply unsubscribe the list.
I am expert enough to help myself in nearly all situations. Sometimes I am not
sure whether I do it the ubuntu way, if I e.g. change configuration  
files directly instead of using a gui and when I build my own ubuntu  
packages I still have some open questions for special cases, like  
dependencies to other packages
that are named differently in ubuntu and debian, but I have my doubts  
that I get the right answers here, this is why I didn't ask.
