I agree. Let's all see this as a learning experience. Ubuntu is about 
humanity. I am because you are. Or we exist because others exist. 
Therefore the way the community deals with issues of an anti-social 
nature reflects who we really are. Surely a way can be found to deal 
with juveniles, or underdeveloped egos without resorting to an us vs 
them, either/or mentality? I think the two poor souls need to say a 
thousand Heil Ubuntu's and seriously speak to that penguin inside.  This 
is really not the distro for combative politicking, nitpicking and 
trolls. Maybe if they did some community service? What have they 
actually contributed to the community?
