I have no problem with rules being enforced, so long as they are enforced
uniformly and without bias, Ubuntu have failed in both counts, most of my
attacks have been towards the so called bullies and list-nazis who go
anyone who doesn't type the way they want them to, also as you likely may
have noted, other messages also showing concern about the berating
of top posters etc by the self appointed net cops have been voiced by
others, but yet those same self appointed net-cops break the same
rules you are trying to selectively enforce upon only two people, by not
trimming their posts, and, all of _their_ OT posts, these include your
friend and mine "Amedee" amongst others, is it that they feel these things
are selectively to be enforced like you?
its a case as "do as I want you to do, but I'll still post the way I
want" for them, completely hypocritical.
So, do I expect to now see Ubuntu enforcing all of these rules against
everyone, top posters, and the non post trimmers and the net-cops and
all OT posters including the in-crowds? I bet it doesn't happen, and we
BOTH know why.
I would prefer not to have to remind the list bullies they have no right
to dictate to others, someone in this or another thread called me a bully,
well, if I'm guilty of bullying the bullies, then yes I plead guilty
and do not apologise for it, but had Ubuntu not failed in its
administration of this list and nipped this crud in the bud years ago, I
likely would not be so outspoken towards the "village idiots" in defence
of the newbies who likely don't know any better, which is why many of the
people on the list despise me, I guess they hate looking in the mirror.
The rantings with Karl would be a rare deviation from my defending the
newbie, perhaps it was overkill, however at least people will see all the
information and can make their own minds up when accepting bad advice and

Why? The nature of this involves the entire Ubuntu community. I would
prefer this be kept on-list as this does NOT just concern myself
and Karl, it concerns everyone, they have the choice to ignore us if
they want, the so called "official reprimand" was made publicly, so
please do not try hide here, things have been open and transparent
till now, so lets keep it that way, it is only fair people get to see
whats going to happen regarding their list. If I am to be removed from the
list, you have my assurance I will not re-sub under one of the myriad of
domains or netblocks I have access to, I will leave peacefully providing I
have assurances that all rules will be enforced all of the time and to
everyone, I've never played favourites and I don't believe Ubuntu should
either, if my outbursts finally get a change to this list to reign in all
bullies then I will leave knowing I made a change for the better.
"What does Windows have that Linux doesn't?" - One hell of a lot of bugs!
