Why was it locked? My rights as a human being are totally broken! I do deserve help! Or am I discriminated?
:mad:

I think it was locked because your behavior, while potentially sincere, closely resembles that of someone asking questions in a way that is intended to stir up negative emotions.

On multiple occasions in that thread you demand that people work for you by providing you with a new how-to, you berate people who try to help you, you don't give enough information for people to give you good assistance and then get grumpy when you are asked a follow up question.

I also think that the primary reasons the thread was locked involved a combination of your poor manners and because there are much easier ways for you to find out how to do what you want to do. We almost never say thing like "RTFM" (read the fine manual) or "Google it!" around these forums, but the simple nature of your questions combined with your impatient and demanding attitude just scream out for that response.

Modify how you make requests and this won't even remotely happen.

matthew (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=17635), none of these things apply to me. My language is absolutely appropriate and polite, just according to the thread. However, I noticed that i a few days, no one could ever give me a reasonable explanation of my problem. That is why I got a little nervous and impatient. But I still kept a good attitude and behaved as normal. I insisted on solving my problem. Some people in the thread decided to burn in anger and started arguing with me, that "so many pages for such an issue..." etc. I won't give up that quickly. Now you have to unlock the thread and start behaving at least a little bit more humane. This is what Ubuntu is. Or are you not a Ubuntu fan?

Personal attacks are unnecessary as are silly insinuations about my moral character. The decision was the right one. The thread will stay locked.

Oh, and you may find the "what's a troll?" link in my signature interesting...even if it is not your intent to do so, your current posting style very closely resembles that of an internet troll, both in the thread you want reopened and this one.
