That's ridiculous. I thought this list is for discussing
openSUSE/linux related stuff. I am interested in such conversations
including systemd, pro and contra opinions.

I could not even understand why the previous systemd threads had to
be stopped. I could not understand those either who frequently
suggested to stop threads they didn't like. Nobody is obligated to
read all messages. If someone is not interested in a thread/message
simply should skip it. Why are they bothered then when others are

Also, moderating linux related messages only because of the topic
(systemd) is outrageous.

You misunderstand.

The issue is not the subject, but manners. Insults and threats. That's
why threads have been closed.

And it happens that some people are so disgusted with systemd that
they attack people with insults; and personal attacks can not be
allowed here.

Henne is not blocking systemd threads. He just "watches" them, and
stops them if the language becomes offensive and uncontrollable.
Before that, I understand he tries to convince whoever in private to
control himself. Being in private, we do not see this in public,

I absolutely support this policy.

Think of debates on TV or elsewhere. The task of the moderator is not
to ban the discussion.
