    Sure. If you think that is the case here then act upon it. Go to the CC. Ask others to change their behavior. Show the world you are right. Change the status quo.

    Because if you (and those who are really concerned about this) don't then no one will.

    The 3rd-party forums have no such marking. There's no banner that states that those entering the 3rd-party section are entering little monarchies and that they should beware of floods of personal attacks. Further, it is not correct to say that posts which violate forum policy are moved to the jail because there's a whole forum of posts which violate policy that are still sitting in the 3rd-party forum...unless they don't violate policy anymore after being scrubbed to make the "king" look better...I haven't checked recently.?
    This is not the place to resolve this issue, but thanks for pointing out that we need clearer disclaimers on the forum.

    Yes, just like anyone else...except those that have been banned from these forums in the past. The "flawed human" excuse didn't work too well for them, did it?
    Often it did. The staff here has given more second and third and forth chances than you can imagine. But since many never contributed again we had no good reason to give them the last chance before they were gone.

    Trust me.
    I do trust you. But, man, it's been going on for months. Is there any chance it will be worked out to everyone's satisfaction (well, you know what I mean) before the next CC meeting, or should I add it to the February 7 agenda?

    It's GPLed. You don't have to post it in the Automatix forum if you don't want to. If you post it to an Official forum then Arnie can't jump all over you without repercussions.

    If you still decide not to post it publicly, would you mind sharing it privately (knowing of the possibility that someone else might post it, 'cause of the GPL)?


    edit: Why is it I never notice my spelling errors until after they're quoted? Reprecussions. Sheesh.

    I second that, nothing worse than not publishing code, or if you want email it to some one, or make a new account and post it with that in a week.

    LET THE PEOPLE SEE THE CODE

    ps great job poofyhairguy I think you are doing a good job of pulling something good out of this debate.

    Great. This has turned into an Arnie bash. Can't you people just let go? Or do I not have a say because someone will call me a fanboy, and say that gives me no voice?

    This thread is called

    Re: What has been your Automatix experience?

    I deliberately tried to remain as neutral as possible in my original post and in the poll options. I don't want this to turn into an Automatix fanboy or Arnieboy-bashing thread. If I were still a mod, I'd excise all of the inappropriate posts in here and put them in a separate thread in the Backyard...

    Well, I'll leave it up to the current mods, I guess.

    Automatix updated to version 5.1

    New features in version 5.1 :
    a) --force-yes flag removed
    b) killall zenity bug fixed
    c) realplayer 10 installation added


    Hope this puts to ease the critics of automatix.

    In future, please be gracious when submitting a bug report.
    I am the last person who would not want automatix to improve.

    Thank you again Arnieboy.
    Manually installing software and setting up your system is always preferable. However, there is not one thing wrong with using Automatix for getting it done the easy way. Get Automatix2 Support Here
