Fine, I'll copy the whole thing...

Really..I said this before....my 4 year old knew he was talking about
version 8.04 just decided to abbreviate it shorter than some people
would have done so....

 as well as Ubuntu vs 9.04 (from 2

If you read the entire sentence, he is talking about how, to him, it
appears to him that the ways you increase the number of workspaces in
8.04 is different in 9.04...But if you do it via the command line it
is the same.....Read the entire thing before finding one thing to be
an @$$ to someone about.

This is about the only thing you said that was constructive....but you
didn't need to throw the all caps in....you could have just stated
that it was available on every version and tell him where to find it
or the command to get it.

 I would prefer the command line

Here is why everyone always calls for you to be banned from the list.
Just because you don't think there is a difference between 8.04 and
9.04 doesn't mean other people don't see differences.  While I may
agree that most actions between both versions are exactly the same, or
at least very similar does not call for you to throw in a comment
implying the person is obviously drinking because he has his opinion
on something that happens to be different from you.  I've been on this
list off and on for the past year and it seems like you rarely offer
anything constructive, and at least once a week, someone is calling
for you to leave the list.
