Someone is going to have to explain this to me.

I think that bodhi.zazen has something to prove here or something.

I believe that I am being harassed by this mod.

This is uncalled for.





Dear steveneddy,

You have received an infraction at Ubuntu Forums.

Reason: You are not a mod
-------
I think that you are missing the point and this topic already ran pretty far off course earlier today. I think the earlier incident was pretty disruptive and do not want to see a repeat, thus the 5 points.

Mods and admins have weighed in earlier and there are many benefits of improving on vague titles.

I think there is a general agreement in this and would ask you to re-direct your energy. This infraction is an opportunity to do so.
-------

This infraction is worth 5 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.

At any rate,

@optimogar :

Please Try starting a thread with a more descriptive title. When you describe the problem you attract the attention of "experts" on your question faster and it save a lot of time for those of us trying to help.

See this link for additional suggestions.

@others (you know who you are) ~ lets keep this thread, dare I say, "On topic"
OK -

I don't think that the OP speaks English very well.

Ubuntu is very safe compared to XP.

Ubuntu users don't need virus scanners.

Ubuntu won't get spyware/adware/trojans as easy as XP.

Install Ubuntu.

Surf Internet.

Check mail.

Enjoy!
All the best,
Ubuntu Forums


This is as close to original formatting as i can get.

I was agreeing with bodhi that more descriptive titles are necessary.

I was acknowledging the fact that we had a discussion about this earlier.

I was also giving my opinion that the OP didn't speak English very well and I was doing my part to reassure the OP that his issue was unfounded.

The original thread discussed virus and spyware in Ubuntu.

I don't understand where this warrants a five point infraction.

This mod is out of control.

If you look at all of my posts, you will see that I am helping people.

Weighing in with my opinion where I feel I can contribute.

I was helping this thread starter.

You are making this hard for this forum member to want to help people or come back here for help.

Lately there has been a lot of heavy handed moderating around here.

I don't believe that this much moderating is necessary.

Maybe some of the mods need some time away from the forums, too.

Some of the mods/admins take this a little too serious.

I think it's time to reevaluate everyone's position here and discuss a solution to an underlying issue that is coming to a head right in front of us.

I evaluate, administer and negotiate for customers, clients and employees every day, and I know what reasonable is, and lately some of the decisions aren't very reasonable.

I would like to continue this dialog on this thread only, no PM.

I would also like to see the opinions of multiple admins to see where we all stand.

I think you may have missed the part where I reviewed and reversed the infraction about 6 hours ago. I anticipated and shared your basic concerns at that time and discussed the matter with bodhi.zazen as well, both before and after the reversal.

Is there something else I can do for you?

I did not know that you had reversed it.

It is Saturday afternoon here and I had been busy with errands.

Thank you again, Matthew.

I am sorry that I posted this in error.

To bodhi.zazen - I mean no harm. I am on your side in all of this & I apologize if the tone of that post was interpreted incorrectly. I will be diligent about being more clear in the future.

No problem. It took me three hours to see your post as I was out and about as well.
