A clean living computer-user health-tip:


Why send this crap to tens of thousands of people who subscribed to this
list to discuss Fedora related topics? Why do you think it is ok to post
your non-Fedora related rambling to a Fedora mailing list again and
again? It is not ok. Stop this nonsense. Read the official information
about this mailing list:


"This list provides community assistance, encouragement, and advice for
Fedora users. Topics outside of that are generally not appropriate for
this list. Please keep in mind that there are many thousands of
subscribers and do your best to remain on-topic and courteous."

(available at https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/users)

Read the 2nd sentence again. STOP sending your off-topic rambling to
this mailing list.


Next read the Fedora mailing list guidelines at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines

After you stop sending your off-topic rambling to this mailing list, if
you have an on-topic Fedora related question and you have followed
"Before Posting to the List" and "If You Still Can't Find an Answer"
from the guidelines then and only then ask it on this mailing list WHILE
STILL FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES.


Given your previous posts let me stress #1 on the guidelines:
Keep It Short.

I think it goes beyond someone not knowing how to participate socially,
even when directly informed about how they should be participating, they
don't. And the nature of the nonsense they post suggests mental
problems. My sympathy dries up when people make a habit of being a
pain.

OK, you have a *very* obsolete version of Fedora.

Why do you think the fact that you're using a version of Fedora that
reached EOL several years ago is relevant to this, or anything else for
that matter. From what I can see, you're just quoting people's posts
back at them with nothing added just to waste everybody's time and
bandwidth. *Plonk*!

IIRC, the twit quoted the text, followed it with his own email address
then quoted the entire message he was replying to with nothing added.
In that context I thought that he was putting a little bit of
meaningless text at the top of his post because he was getting so much
flack for what he'd been doing. I sit corrected.

Umm, actually that's *my* signature. The only thing they did in their
post, beyond hit reply, was copy my signature into the top part of the
message.

I still use 9 on this laptop, because it suits me. I tried 11 on it,
and found that a bit of a pain, and a bit of an improvement, but not
enough to update it. I've got 16 on a desktop, but I find that a very
large pain. I'm beginning to wonder if I can find an update that I'm
going to be happy with. And, yes, I have been trying out other
desktops / windows managers than Gnome and KDE. What I like is Gnome 2.

I'm beginning to think the lpeng poster is another deliberate time
waster, or another persona of one of the fruitcakes on this list
throwing a tantrum. I can see quite a few empty postings this week.

Even though there have been reports of the same issue with this mailid
on other lists, I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that it was
deliberate. As has been noted he is using "iPhone Mail" and he is
locate in China. Also, as I mentioned earlier, since gmail has this
wonderful feature of not showing email "from" you that come through
mailing lists it is perfectly reasonable he had no clue as to what was
happening and considering the types of messages he was getting and
potentially his lack of English skills... Well, I'm willing to give him
the benefit of the doubt.

On that note, I did send him an email off list and explained to him the
situation. My wife wasn't home, so I could not get it to the person in
Chinese. But, after I did we haven't seen any more of his "responses".
So, maybe it is fixed.
