I just got an infraction: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...2#post12304052

Frankly I don't see what the fuss is about.

Maybe I could have phrased things a little more politely, but even reading it a second and third and fourth time I don't see why this is an infraction.

I've been using the Internet since before the public could do so, back in the 80's. I've been using forums since then, back when they were called newsgroups. This is the first time I've ever had any sort of infraction lodged against me.

The OP called my post "impertinent" which I took to mean irrelevant. It seems there's also a definition that means intrusive or presumptuous, and I'm not at all certain the OP had that meaning in mind.

The way I see it, my posts were direct, to the point and impersonal. New machines can be found for very little money today if you're careful about it, and even so one far better than what he has could be had for $10 at a rummage sale.
