    Disagree with recent infraction

    RE:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/private.php?...m&pmid=2178939

    Dear kansasnoob,

    You have received an infraction at Ubuntu Forums.

    Reason: Insulted Other Member(s)
    -------
    You should know better.

    In answer to your "Where is the "staging forum", all you have to do is to read to the end of the notice: "If you want to have a look please PM an admin for details." That's because we only want people testing who are prepared to give helpful feedback for us. After your little display of petulance, this will not include you.
    -------

    This infraction is worth 1 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.
    I was perhaps a bit blunt but that lengthy message makes little to no sense;

    #1: Where is the "staging forum"?

    #2: What is "Canonical IS"?

    "IS" could mean a few different things.

    My post was at the water cooler where I felt we could express ourselves openly, but I perhaps could have used an appropriate "smiley" to indicate that it was meant as a "tongue-in-cheek" criticism.

    My point was that the message is too lengthy and confusing

    You'd have found out where the staging forum is by reading the last line and actually doing that. Posting a thread looking for details for it would have got you nowhere.

    IS is Canonical support - it could mean a few things, but given that we're talking about the upgrade and mention Canonical then it's probably fairly safe to assume so.

    I'm not sure why you think the Code of Conduct doesn't apply in the cafe - it does.

    My point was that the message is too lengthy and confusing
    You might like to visit your jailed thread - re-read it and try and figure out where you put that point.

    The thread was a barely disguised jab at staff and was dealt with accordingly.

    The infraction will stand.

    I was perhaps a bit blunt but that lengthy message makes little to no sense;
    I'm not sure why you think that

    Forum is being upgraded from vB3 to vB4 on the 28th February 2013.
    Fairly self explanatory - forum will be down on that day.

    To enable the upgrade the forum will be unavailable from 08:00UTC. Canonical IS will be doing the upgrade, IS have advised that they need somewhere between 3 and 8 hours.
    So - now we know what time and for how long it Canonical might need, regardless of who or what IS is.

    After this time there are a few things we need to do before we can make the forum available.
    so - after Canonical have done their bit - we need time to do some other things before we can put the forum up again.
    Forum Members and users with ~2000 posts - we'd be extremely pleased if you want to drop by the staging forum before then to make your views known there. All that's needed is a modicum of fiddling and interest
    Is an extension and change to the announcement that has been on the forum for approximately 2 weeks. That offer has already been taken up by some Forum Members.

    Again - not sure what's insensible about that.

    If you want to have a look please PM an admin for details.

    My apologies to anyone and everyone I offended then.
