PostPosted: Thu Sep 08, 2005 10:54 am    Post subject: The rise of the software nazi Reply with quote

In my opinion "the rules" regarding posting on these forums have been applied without due consideration to the purpose of these forums, namely the facilitation of communications about Gentoo related issues. Open source coders have historically rejected top down control, and the promotion of this paradigm by administrators will generate resentment. Gentoo is an excellent Linux distribution, and a credit to those who have participated in it's production. Over-zealous or authoritarian attitudes do not mix well with the philanphropy of open source software, and are likely to have a negative effect upon the Gentoo community.

Disabled.

<sigh> ... so I wasted 20 minutes of my life composing a reasoned, mollifying reply to his/her parting rant. Can someone credit 20 minutes to my account? :wink:

Sorry--I was only joking because the thread got locked between when I clicked "Reply" and "Submit."
Epithet above removed, moving on. :D (Feel free to expunge all this if you wish.)

Hello,

It's not possible to delete forum accounts here for some weird reason (even Administrators aren't able to), so I'd like to have my account disabled instead, please.

You can keep the corpse if you like to.


Oh and thanks for all the fish!

I cant figure out how to delete my account on this forum, if a moderator could help me out, and just go ahead and delete it that would be great. My username has been hacked accross the internet, and I am trying to squash it anywhere I used to frequent.

Thanks.

We don't delete accounts, but I'll lock it for you. Good luck (assuming you are really you).
