I was searching the forums for "apache directory allow" to find some more examples of specific configuration. And I came upon this post. What a lame april fools joke. Do you really have nothing else to waste your time on so you make a whole post about some joke? Why don't you go do some actual work and/or help some people on the REAL forums and stop trying to think of more post ideas for OTW.

They really should take out OTW from the search.

Mod edit: Split from Requesting help with an April Fools joke

Well, yeah, that would fit since this post contained examples of configurations...

Lets take a look at your post history:http://forums.gentoo.org/search.php?search_author=tuxamd
I am not going to waste my time going through all of your posts, so just take the first page. I count:
1 post in which you ask for help on a wine problem.
2 posts in which you ask for help with a game.
22 posts (in OTW) where you complain about how stupid OTW is.
What exactly have you contributed to the forums? It is also interesting to note that you very often insult the intelligence of other posters.

Someone has an attitude. Off the Wall is 'Off the Wall'. Enough said. And as for searching, you can choose to filter out anything in that forum.. sheesh.

Lews_Therin: You may wish to filter out the word marked with ******* in the original post. Once the Ninjas get over April Fool's I don't think they're gonna be very happy about it.

We have smarter ways of dealing with trolls than what I originally proposed.

Nice one trying to tell him to edit his posts to attempt to cover up forum violations.

Make a "complain about me" thread if you wish. I do not take opinions from people who do not know any better seriously. I'd be surprised if there were any real complaints from real people with real common sense. That excludes OTWers.

[about OTW]This is just like a bunch of children fighting and then running to their mommy to tell on each other.

Now, we have:

and

Appparently you are the on running to your mommy to tell.

Now, as for actual violations:
All posts must be professional and courteous. You are free to disagree with your fellow community members. You are not free to attack, degrade, troll or malign them.

Do you have anything else to say? Was all of this stupidity posted really what you were fighting for?

I'm not saying you can't share your opinions no matter how dumb they may be, but that you should do it elsewhere in a PROPER place, not in LINUX SUPPORT FORUMS!!!

Laugh all you want, it would probably take less than 30 min of work by the admins to send all of your foolish opinions and babble to the places where they belong.

I'm finding it hard to resist posting in this forum filled with an overwhelming ammount of ignorance.

Do not discuss cracked software on these forums
texamd wrote:
Just wanted to say feel free to use it (if you must) without paying for it. They aren't exactly that supportive of the gpl or the open source community anyways. But if you feel these posts are too strong, then I guess I'll stop, just trying to save you a few bucks

Lots of things are illegal, doesn't mean the cedega police are going to bust into your house at 3 a.m. Smile If cedega was illegal to hand out like this then I'd probably be on death row for the things I did back during my windows era.

texamd wrote:
Eh why struggle with that when you can find the specific tarball portage needs to install the cedega ebuild for free on google if you search the exact file name or on p2p networks? Ethical or not, It's about time those bastards should contribute some code back to wine as they promised. If you have trouble locating it I can put up a mirror, just like everyone on google already has anyways.

Personally, I have no interest in reporting anyone. I simply wanted to point out that if you feel the forum guidelines are so important that you are comfortable banning anyone who slightly steps over them, you should probably be more careful yourself.

That is quite contrary to the whole point of OTW. Some people try to maintain a balance, but I believe if that guideline was strictly enforced half or more of the OTWers wouldnt' be here any more. The nature of the statements you mentioned get repeated in every OTW thread that is not related to gentoo ten or more times.

The point of OTW is to have some place to talk about things not related to Gentoo. It is not a place for you to come and rant at somebody because your boss wouldn't have sex with you today.

And I maintain that you are an idiot. I'm not going to edit my posts because they offended you. I've never reported somebody for hurting my feelings, since I am no longer 5 years old, and I don't care if you do.

Agreed. If you don't like the social climate, please grow up or leave. This forum doesn't take kindly to people who aren't mature or at least have a sense of humor. Get a life tuxamd and stop being hypocritical. This thread should be closed now before it becomes any more flamebait than it already is.

Personal attacks are not acceptable. Banned from OTW.

tuxamd:
If you don't like OTW, just stay out of it. Please refrain from hijacking topics only to complain how much OTW sucks.

tuxamd + kimchi_sg:
Please try to sort out whatever kind of problem you guys have with each other and do not abuse the feedback threads. Thanks.
