| ALL humans which includes opinions, feelings, emotions, flaws and heart.
| Of course then again I may be wrong.
| Question: Is Linux Trovald the most professional politically correct
| person in the big game? No way... Do we all love what he did/does for us?
| Of course... If it wasn't for that unprofessional person you wouldn't not
| have the ubuntu.com as part of your email address.
| Thanks for making me feel miserable over something I did for Ubuntu,
| Linux, the community and as a hobby for myself.
| I will also add I'm not abandoning the site I will continue to develop it,
| advertise it and move forward even if no one ever uses it because I
| believe in the idea and if only one person buys a computer from it and
| learns linux then I contributed something.

I had all intentions of staying as far away from this conversation as I
could, but curiosity has got the best of me.

Did you setup that website as a high school project?
