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
