    insulting

    Hi,

    I received an infraction for this:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...0&postcount=20

    I don't believe it was justified, I didn't insult the op, I said he was wrong, which he is. If telling someone they're wrong is an insult then something is wrong with this forum.

    This person basically said the same thing I did except less elaborately:

    Saying someone does not know what they are talking about , in the tone you used and implying they are ignorant is an insult .

    I disagree.

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ignorance

    ignorance (plural ignorances)

    1. The condition of being uninformed or uneducated. Lacking knowledge or information.
    'ignorance' is not an insult, it's a statement, and they are exactly the definition of ignorant.
