I realized thanks to the thread

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=890350

that I cannot use "M$" for "microsoft" in this forums because it's against forum rules:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=885580

M$ is a convicted monopolizer, full of illegal & shady business affairs, they keep telling FUD, develops ****** software, they are the king of vendor lock-in, they push for laws that outlaw competitors, they don't follow standards, they are bribers, they do their best to kill free software, and I am critized for writing M$ because it "really hasn't been funny".

I don't care if you find it funny or not, I do. But I don't write M$ because that it's funny. I write M$ because it's a political stand and it conveys my view point of them in just two letters. Don't like it, then don't use it. But you shouldn't stop me from using "M$".

I suggest you stop this moral and political censorship and remove "Avoid using terms like "M$ Microshaft" etc." from the forum rules.

It isn't against the rules to use such terms and there are many reasons why people do.

Any recommendations to not use such terms are to enhance communication as using proper English to the best of ones ability is part of the Code of Conduct.

Some people find such terms to be fan personish and they may not take that person seriously.

Oh. OK. Thanks for clarifying.

Well sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

I can live with that.
