let me tell you a story about etiquette... One day in the university I

Then I learnt my lesson... never try to impose your etiquette on others...
only thing you learnt is that she imposed HER ignorant and misguided
code of etiquette on YOU!
You should have simply told her that the code of etiquette which YOU were
applying was something which was in place for hundreds of years and that you
INSIST that she walk through first according to YOUR code of manners.
You could have also asked her if she was wearing a bra and if she was to
take it off and burn it in front of you. (Always carry a box of matches or a
cigarette lighter for such occasions, BTW.)
Can we terminate this completely
pointless offtopic new thread ?
To begin with, you raised the issue about the "etiquette" and how you
got zapped by a female for trying to apply your manly and cavalier
etiquette in existence for hundreds of years towards a woman.
I still apply this etiquette which I learnt from childhood and only get,
"Thank you!", for my manners each and every time.
But, yes, we can terminate this 'thread' which, of course is not a
"thread" of its own but part of the main thread called, "troubles with
While you are the one who introduced this subject, I am quite happy to
Basil, Do you have a user page in openSUSE listing
Pray tell: why should I, or anyone else, have a "user page"?
Is this a mandatory requirement to use openSUSE and belong to its mail
lists? (See also below.)
If not, can you create one ?
As in the above para. - why should I do so? I haven't put my name
forward for membership of the Board - but you have.
Are you implying that anyone who uses openSUSE has to create and
maintain a "user page" which lists "[one's] contributions" before
posting messages in the openSuSE lists?!
I believe it will be more useful for
the community than this pointless subthread about women& culture.
Keeping in mind that you were the one who introduced this "off topic"
subject about "women & culture", you seem to have a twisted idea of what
"community" means when it comes to openSUSE.
Here is what the Guidelines state about the "community":
... our users, their desires and goals, their need for help when
encountering problems and their support for our common project. We
listen to our users and focus on their needs throughout all our
activities. We consider our users to be part of our community.
Repeat, "We consider our users to be part of our community."
But no mention to create a "user page". But please point me to the
specific reference where this is mentioned as a requirement.
No problemo :-) .
