Thanks for recognizing that. One guy cracked a humorous joke. I merely chimed in with my $0.02 worth, and got called off-topic. After defending my position, the whole topic went dead. Very revealing, if not helpful.

I think the discussion of teaching children about Linux is very important. I truly hope the others have just taken a day off, and not allowed someone's misjudgment to ruin the discussion.
