Moses ran knoppix? I thought everyone ran Yggdrasil back then

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.

Indeed, as do I. It just so happens that *I* think the whole thread is a
perfect candidate for [OT], being non-technical in it's nature (apart from
the "very young children and passwords" -bit)...

[OT] was created more or less as a direct result of Fred getting napalmed for
posting links to articles, which usually had some sort of relevance to the linux
community. It's the place for non-tech stuff.

I truly hope the others have just taken a day off, and not allowed someone's
misjudgment to ruin the discussion.


If I was out of line - which I do not believe - someone point out how so. I'm
fairly well versed in netiquette, and taught that as part of Internet classes
back in the mid 90's.

Fine. I'll just STFU now.


I would have to agree that the whole discussion should be part of the OT list. I came into it fairly late, though. I didn't start the Moses-Knoppix-Yggdrasil theme, and should not have been singled out. The whole discussion should have been called "off-topic". At the very least, the comments leading to the fork in the discussion should have been included along with mine. By singling out my comments, it appears - to me, at least - that I was getting singled out for using the "wrong" word in a sentence. If I have misunderstood, just communicate that. Since no one is stepping forth to suggest otherwise, I hold my view to be true.

I truly thought others had a sense of humor, too. After all, that's all the fork was - humorous comments. All I'm asking for is to be treated fairly.
