That said, I enjoy reading all the interviews, regardless of who it is, so I don't mind who does it :p

Since Matthew is busy in RL, I decided to help out a bit with the next Ubuntu Community Interviews (http://matthewhelmke.net/wordpress/2008/07/03/introducing-ubuntu-community-interviews/). We have a special interview this time around. cheap_ipods22, sometimes known as scum, imbecile, idiot, and some things I can't wrote, is a forum spammer, an bivalve fan (to the extreme), a member of the UN. Departing from our tradition in these interviews, he is someone who does not contribute anything useful and is in fact no longer a member of the forum. He is dumb, opinionated, ignorant, and a good contrasting addition to our interview series. Enjoy!


1. Tell as much as you’re willing about your “real” life — name, age, gender, location, family, religion, profession, education, hobbies, etc.
I am just cheap_ipods22. I have no real life. In fact, I think I sacrificed all remnants of humanity when I decided to spam support sites.

2. When and how did you become interested in computers? in Linux? in Ubuntu?
During my spamming sprees, I found UbuntuForums.org because of its size. I felt since it had no spam on it, it must be fertile ground for my wares. I was wrong. The amazing staff removed my spam in minutes.

3. When did you become involved in the forums (or the Ubuntu community)? What’s your role there?
I joined 04 September 2008 15:48, and was a poster of spam until my removal on 04 Septembre 2008 15:50 by LaRoza.

4. Are you an Ubuntu member? If so, how do you contribute? If not, do you plan on becoming one?
No. Being a member requires a person not be a low down scum sucking mollusc with a nonexistant brain.

5. What distros do you regularly use? What software? What’s your favorite application? Your least favorite?
What is a distro? The software I use is the Internet (big blue e) and Word (big blue W). My least favourite is that video player I had to download to get that free video series about bivalve fetishes. It still doesn't work and my computer is acting weird.

6. What’s your fondest memory from the forums, or from Ubuntu overall? What’s your worst?
Which forum? There have been so many, I don't remember names. What is Ubuntu? Is that some form of African witchcraft? I am an atheist and do not believe in such nonsense.

7. What luck have you had introducing new computer users to Ubuntu?
So you are a door to door religion are you? Why are you bothering me? I swear to God I will call the cops.

8. What would you like to see happen with Linux in the future? with Ubuntu?
Linux? Oh, yes. I know some 1337 haxors that use that. They all live with their mothers and have no social lives. Pitiful losers.

At this point I remind cheap_ipods22 that I live with my mother, use Linux, and have no substantial social life and am not a loser.

9. If there was one thing you could tell all new Ubuntu users, what would it be?
Stop knocking on my door before I call the cops.!

The first response was a generic link to the spam site, which had to be removed to keep in line with forum policy.

It depends on the expectations I think. I have a mail box in a post office. I check it once a week about because I don't expect much traffic. However, I check my email daily (sometimes several times) because I expect more.

How about:

I'd really like Ubuntu to solidify its GUI and make it consistent between programs (such as Gimp) before growing larger and appealing to a mass audience.

Something like that! I'm not really being negative here, however it seems very obvious that regular contributors to the forums actually take a keen interest in Ubuntu, these are the members who are interviewed, and its obvious based on their time they have contributed to the project they would want to promote Ubuntu and see it prosper. Some objectivity beyond -- I'd really like it to grow and become very popular -- would also be candid and I think would actually serve to promote the goal of "world wide dominance" since it would expose areas that could be corrected and improved and act as a means to achieve this goal.

This has been a lot of fun for me, but I'm realizing that real life is keeping me a lot busier than it used to and I don't have time to do the interview process justice as I would like. There is good news, though. The series won't end, it is just moving to a new home. Joeb454 will post soon as the new interviewer. The new interviews will be hosted on his blog and he will post a link soon.

Thanks, Joeb454! and a big thank you to all who have participated in the process thus far, both under K.Mandla's leadership and mine.
