Re: [SLE] A small request.
While you bicker over the semantics and structure of Q&A threads here,
others are using this forum as it was intended. Quibbling over how these
messages are sent or viewed seems like such a petty waste of time to me. Is
this what lies ahead in Linux forums? I certainly hope not.
If we can't even agree on how to communicate with each other, how can we
expect this community to grow? Focus on Linux issues..... please. I'm sick
of Redmond dictating my I.T. career.
Let's work together.
